Ok, into battle... soft play centre for the afternoon. Remember to pack the following:
1. "Combat attitude" for irresponsible, or snotty parents who are in denial their precious Tarquin/ Tarquinetta just punched your child in the face! = tick
2. Anti-bac wipes to counter the sea of viruses and bacteria coughed out and dribbled onto the brightly coloured plastic = tick
3. ipad to numb the boredom, though do prepare for patchy wifi, signs of free wifi lure reluctant parents in but too frequently it doesn't work.
If only they sold earplugs & strawberry daiquiris, I could almost enjoy the soft play scene!
