Guest Blog from Steph Gore Me while Pitville Park was under construction: (sharing every Facebook update from Cheltenham Borough Council) How exciting, this looks amazing, can’t wait to go! Me on opening day: I won’t tell Honey the park is finished, it’ll be rammed on a sunny day like this….. Me after seeing Facebook posts and photos from friends who had been: Wow! It’s still rammed, we’ll just wait until after half term. Me after visiting, a week after it opened: What am I doing here? Why is it still so rammed?

Applying a bit of Science to the art of being a Maman
