A child’s active creativity begins at a very early age. Practically from birth we encourage them to connect with the human beings who surround them. We convince ourselves that their poo face is actually an expression of delight. We marvel at how clever they are when they chew on the corner of the rug, or when they manage to pull themselves to standing.
Having arrived back in the UK we didn’t hang around too long before going on a little trip. After all, we’re seasoned travellers now aren’t we? Off we set Up North. Well, I say ‘Up North’ but really it was Stafford with Manchester thrown in, decidedly Midlands with a touch of North. However for our sensitive Southern souls this was definitely a trip Up North.
