Fostering is something that my husband and I always considered. It must be extremely hard yet so rewarding, and that just sounds like parenting in general, but this is a another level.

… that apparently the building where you can now find the Ritzy Cinema was the first cinema based on the south side of the Thames in London? Wikipedia states that it first opened in March 1911 as “the Electric Pavilion” and was one of England’s earliest purpose-built cinemas seating over 750 seats in the single auditorium. Like many cinemas of the period, it was fitted with an organ.
Thank God it is still here nowadays as it is a great cinema with a very affordable kids club as well, and also offers many other activities at daytime as well such as Yoga classes!
There is always something to do with the family at the local Windmill! (Check it out here)
