Mothers Day, Picnic -

The weather, at least here in London, is looking good for Mother's day this Sunday. Full Sun. If you've got run away toddlers and kids with ants in their pants a picnic might be 'relaxing' for everyone, or as relaxing as you're going to get without running away to a secret destination for the weekend without the kids. (Now there's an idea). Picnics are a great way for the family to get together and have some quality time. Take games you can play together, head out to some open space and of course pack some yummy food and perhaps a bottle...
