Introduction: Mainly dominated by my threenager and her dance moves. I’m just getting into the swing of being on mat leave round two so starting to get out and about again.

Favourite places to eat: Pizza Express but mainly for the hat.

Anywhere that does large portion kid’s meals that I can share like the cheapskate I am!



Favourite places to go : McDonalds soft play (it’s free...I did say I was cheap and cheerful!)

Victoria Park

Like heading back to Brum (hometown) for adventures too. I can tell you the best places to sit on Chiltern line trains and Virgin!
