    Enjoy, i would love to go to one of these but within 3 years of childminding I have never been able to either make the date or they would cost me too much to get too, to justify them. Lets us know if you find anything exciting.

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    Had a fab time, caught up with a few people which was great. Good to see you all again, it's been far too long. Definitely need to sort out a London meet RickySmiths

    I probably spent far too much but I definitely got some bargains

    We got those wooden blocks, got a great bargain on them too as we had the display ones.

    And I won a lovely book in one of the prize draws so a bonus

    I liked the look of those but apparently you couldn't buy just one board, you have to have 4 which made it a bit expensive for me

    We went back at the end and badgered him into letting us take away one board each at the end!
