I absolutely love the IoW but quite a lot is closed during winter (defined as 1 November to Easter but quite a few places shut down in mid September).
As a result I am writing this post in soft play, one of the only places that is open. It is crowded and you can tell all the children have just about had enough of the Christmas holidays. At present I can see four howling children and three sulky ones. I have also lost sight of mine, I hope temporarily.
I’d thought most children go back today but it must be tomorrow.
At least when everything opens again, we’ll really appreciate it.
