. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about our adventures at the Playmobil FunPark just outside Nurnberg Germany and promised pictures. Well, it’s taken some time to retrieve them, but here’s some pictures of the fun we had in what really is a FunPark. The Entrance to the FunPark, guarded by child-sized soldiers. Notice […]
Out and about
. I love water and water sports, especially sailing. This year, due to obvious reasons (…like having a baby) we’ve not been able to go sailing, as we had vowed to do last year. I decided to get my “boat-fix” at this year’s Southampton Boat Show, so off I went with a baby and a […]
