I’ve been very good this year, so I thought I would write you a letter to remind you of some of my best moments. I’ve found your glasses, keys and wallet every time you’ve lost them. I’ve let go the men’s only cycling holiday and the rugby matches; I’ve even taken your mother shopping. As you know, I’m a practical soul, and I really don’t want to sound ungrateful, but the supermarket bubble baths, just aren’t going to cut it this year.
So the long summer holidays are over, the kids are back at school and parents everywhere are congratulating themselves on getting through another 6 weeks of juggling childcare and ‘quality’ time with their offspring. As family life gets back to routine, weekends take on a new significance. And as the weather starts to turn chillier and wetter, just how do you entertain the family at the weekend?
