Possibly the only time the kids have willingly gone near a bath ! Lovely day spent @spacecentre . It was a bit of a toad trip to get there but very much worth it . One thing we didn’t realise was that booking the tickets on line means you get to come back as often as you like in the next 12 months . Worth considering if you are likely to be in the area. 
Year 2 have been doing a lot about space this year so this really was the perfect activity for our eldest . It’s not the biggest venue but there is plenty for all ages to enjoy . Highly recommended ! .

National Space Centre
Had a quick over night stop @premierinn in Milton Keynes, kind of good for @zslwhipsnadezoo and then for our next destination @spacecentre . What a lovely place to stop , massive playground and beautiful lake to enjoy a cheeky drink or two . The family rooms were a good size and we all got a great nights sleep (for a change ) Happy mini break ! .

Psssst , it’s a New Lowdown ! Lion Lowdown and not in Lewisham! Just a little day out over the Easter break to celebrate no school and no flu . @zslwhipsnadezoo was really rather marvellous and so much bigger than we could have imagined . Highlights include me shouting to  the kids to come see the rabbits and being told by a by stander that we were looking at Wallabies. Yay ! .

It’s a shame they have to have these warnings but sadly they do so it makes sense the have them where people actually park/leave their bikes ! .

Shout out to @corbettcommunitycentre and what looks like a brilliant event planned for tomorrow . Lots of music and craft events and apparently some lovely prizes on offer too. If you are in the SE6 area and at a loose end this is the place to be ! .

We’ve had a rubbish morning ! Really rubbish , surrounded by the stuff and picking it up ! Our first litter pick and won’t be our last . All organised by Steve and @ravensbourneresidents there are another two planned for April and May . Check the Ravensbourne website for more details and I will share the dates too.  We managed to get a lot of rubbish and a lot of recycling and we met lots of lovely new people . Apparently litter picker sticks are available in @lovewilko  so I’ll be getting some of them to go along with the kids new £1.99 gardening gloves from @lidlgb . All in all a wonderful , free activity !

All my great Easter Holiday plans have had to be shelved as I have come down with the flu ! Proper couldn’t get out of bed flu so sadly I missed out on this trip to @thewildlifetrusts #centreforwildlifegardening in Peckham. The kids came back really delighted with their day out and told me they had fished out a newt from a pond and lifted up an old carpet and come face to face with a giant Stag Beatle . It sounded wonderful. Fingers crossed we can go back another time when I am on my feet

Waiting for my train back to Catford , the Guys Hospital Tower now dwarfed by the Shard. I remember when that was one of the tallest buildings in the area and it had a fabulous room up the top that staff held parties in ! It’s looking very little now.

Shout out the wonderful staff @kaspasdesserts Catford . My youngest was concentrating so hard on mixing mango and bubble gum ice cream to get ‘green’ ( yes I know 🤢) he ended up dropping the whole thing under the table . Lovely staff brought him a whole new bowl for free . Very very kind, absolute melt down averted! .

Small acts of kindness are wonderful , the little free lending library for commuters at Catford Bridge Station always makes me smile , such a lovely idea.

Just popped into @theemporiumofthrift at Catford Bridge Station . My mum isn’t on Instagram so I’m not spoiling any surprises ! They have a gorgeous selection of Mother’s Day cards and have all other occasions covered too ! I had to be single minded and not explore the rest of the shop as there are just too many fabulous things !!! Really worth a visit if you are looking for a gift for someone special .

There didn’t seem to be too many things going on that allowed you to do something for both mum and baby when mine were tiny but that’s all changed now ! @hummymummiesselondon have several classes in south London and are holding a Spring Showcase @ninthlifepub on Saturday 30th March at 11:30 am . Fabulous venue and a great chance to hear some lovely singing and find out more about the classes . Also a legitimate reason for being in the pub on a Saturday morning . Why not check it out? .

Today I went to @bootsuk optician in Catford and handed in a great big pile of contact lense packaging . Feeling really pleased that this lot is not heading into the land fill and very impressed with Boots offering this service . They will take any brand you have so if you are a contact lense wearer why not recycle yours? ( also shout out to the lovely staff in Catford branch !) .
