Ancient lives, new discoveries: British Museum (Parents and Carers View)

We were invited to a special parents and carers view of Ancient lives, new discoveries at the British Museum this week.

So, how was it for us?

Still, if you are looking for entertainment there’s a whole weekend of cycling fun, a cow-themed music festival (yes, really) and lots of children’s theatre to choose from…

To date, I’ve generally relied on the big name brands, mostly out of convenience, but I’m always open to new discoveries and so was glad to accept the offer from Green People to review their Organic Children Sun Lotion.
