“But what happens when it’s raining? How do you get them to walk then?” Once I’ve described how, with a bit of determination and imagination, it’s perfectly possible to get the children to go for that walk, there’s usually an immediate follow-on question about how to achieve this in wet weather.

I've been thinking about whether to turn our trip to Miniatur Wunderland into a Little Trekkers post, or not, for a long time. 3 months to be accurate - ever since our Hamburg trip last October.

On one such day recently, we decided it was time to visit the climbing wall.
When you look out of the window on a wet dreary day sometimes it is difficult to pull yourself out from under your Duvet; but if you manage to pull yourself outside you always feel better for it.
