Popdance Tea 'Pop' Party in aid of Grove House Hospice

Popdance is a fab business, set up by two dynamic mums to bring dance classes to adults around the uk. A great way to keep fit and have a laugh while learning a routine over 4 weeks. The best bit is that the routines taught are set to pop music that everyone loves!

There are classes popping up around the country. The classes began with a couple in St Albans, which is where I am from.

Popdance are holding a Tea 'Pop' Party on October 22nd, 2010 10 am, at the Thistle Hotel, Watford Road, St Albans AL2 3DS. This is in aid of Grove House Hospice, an amazing place which my family have personal experience of. It provides real help to those suffering from serious illness, and their families and was set up by my childhood doctor after her husband died.

The Tea Party promises to be lots of fun, with dance demos and chance to join in. Plus cupcakes, tea and stalls of lovely things to buy!

Tickets are £5 which includes tea and a cake, and all profits go directly to Grove House.

Lettie Belle are very pleased to have a stall, and will be selling artwork, cushions and lots of other little treats!

Please do come along if you can, tickets can be bought at www.popdance.co.uk

Feather Down Farm Fun!

Our little family just went away for two weeks in Devon. The first few nights were spent 'glamping'at Aller Farm, which is part of Feather Down Farm Days. This is where you stay in large Pioneer tents on a farm. The scheme gives farms the chance to use spare fields and have another income. Visitors get to cook on wood burning stoves, shop for local produce in the honesty shop, and see the animals every day. The beds and flushing toilet in each tent account for the reference to 'glamping'. Having done our fair share of proper camping in questionable conditions, the husband and I welcome a bit of luxury these days!

This was our third experience of Feather Down on different farms, and once again we loved it! As it was late in the season, we were actually alone though there were 7 tents in total. Being a dairy farm, the tents are surrounded by fields of cows. This thrilled Scarlett and her highlight was feeding a 10 day old calf called Princess every morning, as well as travelling from the tents to the car in a wheel barrow!

I even milked a cow, which was an experience. The family who run the farm were so friendly and welcoming. The surrounding parts of Devon and Dorset are beautiful, and we were never short of activities.

Check out www.featherdown.co.uk, there are many farms in the UK taking part. Very much recommended for families!
