This week’s challenge…

Day One and some of the housemates are in the garden.

Of course, unlike the Big Brother inmates, we’re also free to go to the park, or the library (if you haven’t registered yet for the Summer Reading Scheme, then I definitely recommend it. It encourages your kids to actually finish the books they’ve taken out, for a start.)

Another activity you can start now is the Fitter Families Challenge. Ian Wright, MBE, is encouraging families up and down the country to take more exercise and have fun – and it’s free to register and take part. Come on – race you to the goalpost.
