A trip to your local pet shop or aquatic shop.
I kept note of Alice’s tweet about Pets At Home being a really fun place for a toddler, and next time we were passing our local branch (Purley Way has everything), I popped in with Arlo.
I was his best friend that day because I took him to the pet shop. Everything seemed to be at his eye level too, which was a bonus.
We’ve also been known to pop into our local aquatic shop in Crystal Palace, another winner with Arlo. Although Pets At Home is much larger, so I don’t get the feeling that I’m bothering anyone by using their shop floor as a lazy way to entertain my toddler.
On another subject, amazingly, Sam has won the M&S man-over competition!! He’s really excited, and I’m very happy that he gets to have a treat for once, and a really great treat at that! He’s got an important business trip coming up next month so a new suit make so much difference. And we get to go on a date too! We’re very thankful to have been picked.
