Yesterday I packed up the entire contents of the house and dragged them down the road to the beach for a couple of hours, then dragged them home again.
That’s what it felt like anyway. It occurred to me that I carried less stuff when I was interrailing for a month than I do for a quick trip out for the afternoon when children. So we had buggy (intended for three year old but inhabited by Tigerboy), wrap (in case he got evicted), spare nappies, towel, snacks, water bottles, beach shelter, hats, sun lotion, rug and of course, buckets and spades.
Possibly. (I also had one of those back rest chairs, a Kindle and a couple of blue books in case I had time to either read or write. I am an optimist at times. They all went unused. )
But we had a great time. We stopped on the way down and bought a £1 pack of chocolate icecream lollies, and yet another sunhat. One day I will find one that Tigerboy will tolerate. Smallest had great fun with the Miffy set, particularly when she discovered she could fill Miffy’s head up with sand. They are good sturdy toys and will give us lots of hours of play value I expect.
Now, what I could do with for review is one of those chunky wheeled trailers. Radio flyer out some such? That would make tackling the beach so much easier, don’t you think?
Disclosure. The Miffy beach set was received for review and can be bought from their online shop for £7.
