  1. I want to try that swing on the streetlight. I’m not sure I’d be so keen on sleeping five siblings to a bed, though.


  2. Click into this at the 13 minute mark – there’s some old kids schoolyard songs .

  3. Kids allowed to play outside??? Wassat?


    • Kids are allowed to play outside Jules – it isn’t a police state yet.

      Give Mrs May a bit more time on that one, though.

      It’s more that the gutter press (Yes, you – Daily Mail, I’m talking to you . . . ) crucify any parents who let their kids play unsupervised whenever there is a case of child abduction.
