Today in Streatham. Partners in Slime. The amount of glue, glitter, pots we also use at home… 😂 I love the Science in Action but the chemicals in some of the crap my daughter uses, eww. And the plastic. On a healthier note. Last night. Creative Cousins decorated gingerbread biscuits. With various e-numbers, sugar and preservatives. They thoroughly enjoyed it.

Today we climbed Mount Vesuvius Today we took a train to Ercolo then tourist bus up to Mount Vesuvius, enjoying great views of the city of Naples sprawling below, whilst slightly terrified of the narrow coach turns. The carpark with all the coaches was probably the most dangerous part though. From here, we walked about 15 minutes on a reasonably wide path to the crater rim.
