Happy birthday Yums hope the surprise trip is surprising in nice ways
wow Pippi the holiday sounds amazing! I've always wanted to go to the Scottish isles it's definitely on my list. couldn't face camping these days but campervanning on the other hand is brilliant - although we haven't used our new van yet and now its failed its MOT.
I totally agree ref higher education - if my boys had wanted to study I would have been fully supportive but I really don't think we should be pushing all kids into getting degrees and having the debt of it.
