The best birthday present ever!

This morning, we headed to the singing group at the library that the girls go to. By the time we’d finished that and picked up a bit of shopping before heading home, our postman had been and gone.  I have to say, our postman is excellent. He never just takes our package back to the post office, he always leaves it somewhere safe or with a neighbour and today was no exception.  I wasn’t expecting a package, so I was a little confused when Libby started scrabbling around under our trailer tent when we got home. I was even more…

NattyMat review
