An open – child related – letter to Exeter
Why are there hardly any rainy day provisions for smallies? I realise that Devon is a very beautiful place, full of outdoorsy people but why-oh-why are there so few places to go when it’s rubbish outside?
Yesterday was a Bear Feet day and – according to the lovely member of staff on the door – it was their busiest day of the year. I can confirm it was ear-splitingly busy. Generally – as you will understand if you have read my last post – soft play allows parents a little time to drink coffee and write blogs in a very noisy environment. Today my son didn’t want to play ball and as I nursed my overly-milky slightly tepid cappuccino with my son draped over me, I thought there must be more fun things to do with kids on a rainy day in Exeter.
Dear budding mum or dad-trepeneurs of Exeter,
This song is for you (sing to the tune of Blue Monday, New Order “I see a ship in the harbour“)
I spy a gap in the market,
a gap that would surely pay.
And if it wasn’t for my dislike of softplay,
I would fill that gap today.
How about it? YOU CAN DO IT.
Dear mums and Dads who have been living in Exeter for a while,
