We did, thanks - stopped at the park for a blowy 30 min or so, where I got a bit sweary when the wind blew cola all over the buggy and DD had a marvellous time playing on the swings and making a new friend. Plus bonus stunt kites in the adjoining field and Red Arrows (or similar) fly over!
Ha! Just after posting I remembered that we'd stopped somewhere in Worcester on our way to Glastonbury festival in 2008 that had been fab and the internet (god I love the internet) meant I found it in about 40 seconds flat - and you'll never guess where it was
Thanks so much for the suggestion/confirming my addled memory
Sparkling we'll have to make a mumnset appropriate sign for our car (Pombears? Penguins? Nice ham? Square poo?) and you can look out for us on the M6 (Hope the traffic gods are good to us all ...)
We'll be driving home via the M5 tomorrow from south Wales to Cheshire and are looking for somewhere to stop off for a picnic lunch/run around. Any recommendations close to the M5 for a nearly 4 yo and a 1 yo? Many thanks
