Yesterday was Darcey’s second birthday so we went on a lovely family trip to Sundown Adventureland, a theme park for the under 10s.

As I pretend to be a parenting blogger I thought I’d edit together all the photos and videos we made into some sort of fun, exciting video to make you want to visit the place too.

Unfortunately, this is me we’re talking about, and I got a bit carried away.

So, there’s that. Sorry.

Have a look at the Sundown Adventureland websiteif you want a more wholesome preview of their attractions.

Yay. Parent blogger.

To publicise the latest Percy Jackson book, the lovely PR people are encouraging everyone to get outside and play Capture The Flag, a game made popular in the first book in the series Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief, following the adventures of the teenage demi-god as he mucks about getting involved in all sorts of magical shenanigans.

Being a grumpy winter curmudgeon, I don’t sleep well in the warm. If you wanted me to sleep with my socks on, I’d call you a mad person and throw something at you.
Open a window ye great Jessie, I hear you scream in your Scottish accent. The thing is, we live opposite some sort of green countryside nonsense, trees and grass and that, and that means bugs. Midges, bees and the bane of a father’s existence – child-terrifying monster giant deadly eyeball licking spiders.
So, yeah, I’m not sleeping with the window open.

Is what I would have said last week (although last week was a bad example because it was cold). Now, though, I have the solution, a fancy DIY fly screen from http://DIYflyscreens.co.uk
