Everyone loves a family day out, maybe a walk in the woods or even a trip to the zoo or a stately home so you can indulge in fantasies about being a wealthy Victorian. Lovely.

About Alison McGarragh-Murphy
Alison writes and edits stuff for The Motherload, and is also a radio producer and broadcast journalist, a mum of two and a wife of one. Since becoming a mother she has (mostly) gladly swapped a busy social life of gigs, pubs, art galleries and museums for dancing in the kitchen, drinking on the sofa, finger painting and hanging out at the park. She talks incessantly about not having slept for four years.
