Welcome back to #CulturedKids! What a difference a day makes at this time of year, one day we are shivering in sub zero temperatures and the next it is the hottest April day on record. The weather was just on the turn on the day this month’s #CulturedKids host Scarlett and I headed off to to see the first statue of a woman in Parliament Square being unveiled. It is 100 years since women got the vote and Millicent Fawcett was one of women who we have to thank.
Bright sunny days were perfect for heading out with a friend and her dog to the Devil’s Punchbowl we walked down what was once a bottleneck on the A3 and is now a green path.
Believe it or not this was a traffic black spot until six years ago. Every morning you would here the traffic reports warning of tailbacks at Hindhead. A combination of a narrow road, steep hill and traffic lights bought the A3 to a grinding halt several times a day. Since the Hindhead tunnel was built the Portsmouth to London traffic can whoosh on by and the old road has faded to this calm and beautiful place to walk and there is a National Trust cafe!

After all the hurly burly of the Easter holidays and friend and I headed off down to Bath for a couple of days where we gazed at the Roman baths and wallowed in the warm waters of Thermae Bath Spa.
Just back from a girls mini break to Bath. Taking a dip in the Roman baths is no longer possible but we went next door to @thermae_bath_spa where you splash around in the naturally heated spring water as much as you want in their fabulous rooftop pool and have a relaxing @aromatherapyassociates massage afterwards. Perfect way to welcome Spring! #andrelax #roman #bath #thermalwaters #spa #visitbath #aromathery #wellnesswednesday #snaphappybritmums #ukexplore #travelblogger #girlstrip #reflections #lppathfinders
If you love the Tudors and a spot of historical fiction then you in luck. The latest instalment of Alison Weir’s Six Tudor Queens series comes out in middle of May and I have one hardback copy of Jane Seymour, The Haunted Queen to giveaway.
Earlier this year I finally got to visit Rome, a mere seventeen years after Mr CW promised that he would take me there, our Rome for First Time Visitors post is my #CulturedKids offering this week.
