'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do, than the ones you did do’  - Mark Twain

I came across this quote and it struck a chord. As my sons get older,  I’ve become more acutely aware of the swift passage of time and the seeming increasing pace of life which leaves very little time to stop for a breather. In the chaotic madness that is the reality of family life (well my family life at least), it is easy to get trapped in that well-known busy cycle of family business - running around at breakneck speed doing all the stuff that we ‘just have to do’ to keep family, job, house and all the rest ‘ticking over’.

However, if you are anything like me these ‘must do’ things are probably not the kind of things Mark Twain is referring to and I suspect the majority of them I will have completely forgotten about twenty minutes later, never mind twenty years!

Sometimes it takes a little inspiration, something new to jolt us out of our daily routines and in an effort to help. This website is full of ideas, events and activities for you and your family to squeeze in lots of ‘doing’ stuff of the right type. The aim for our magazines is to provide opportunities for loads of family fun and memory making!

Whatever you do have fun.....
