My word it’s been a truly hectic few weeks – I’ve had contact with a couple of young babies, something that I’ve not had the joy of for some years until a great neice arrived last year, and a neighbour’s grandchild followed a few weeks later. I can remember now exactly how much fun my partner used to have when it came to choosing the toys for our one only child. He used to try out all the toy shops in the neighbouring town first, to be loyal to them. But his greatest joy and achievements were by visiting the major county town where we worked. Gosh there were some fantastic establishments with games, puzzles, models, dolls of every size and description. He really knew his toys and sourcing them on line would have been brilliant for him had that option been available in those days !
