A day out in Bournemouth with National Express and the ODDBODS

Nigel Clarke

On Wednesday we were invited to become a tourist in our home town with National Express and the ODDBODS, hosted by children’s TV Presenter Nigel Clarke. If you have not heard of the ODDBODS, it is a CGI-animated series focusing on seven cute characters – Fuse, Pogo, Zee, Jeff, Bubbles, Slick and Newt. These non-dialogue characters survive the perils of everyday life, unintentionally turning ordinary situations into unexpected, extraordinary and always humorous events. ODDBODS are hugely popular with my kids… Continue Reading “A day out in Bournemouth with National Express and the ODDBODS”

Walking the Southwest Coast path to Old Harry Rocks

Old Harry Rocks

Last week we had three birthday’s in our house, Sebastian turned 5 on Wednesday, mine on Thursday and Callan’s 21st was on Sunday. As you can imagine, that equated to a pretty expensive week, so when Hubby asked what I wanted to do for my birthday it involved finding an activity that didn’t cost too much. Our first plan involved London as I was supposed to be attending an event, but when that fell through, Hubby tried to book a… Continue Reading “Walking the Southwest Coast path to Old Harry Rocks”
