[LIFESTYLE] Cycling to Work #ThisGirlCan

I used to be on my bike a lot, I used to run a lot, go to multiple gym sessions … all sorts.

Listening to @BBCWomansHour with @aliciablumross on #DigitalParenting

I was alerted to this programme about children and screen time, on earlier this week, and have just had the opportunity to catch-up on it. The blurb says: Getting children away from their screens can be a daily battle, but how much more difficult is it in the school holidays?
