Make & Do

The Pink family loves to make and do. We do a lot of creating: whether it’s art and craft, or baking and cooking, we’ll have a go. I am a huge craft fan, though I’m jack of all trades and master of none. That doesn’t stop me from buying all the kit though! Ava has definitely inherited my artistic streak, and Thea isn’t far behind her.

We also love a good day trip. We are National Trust members and love nothing more than a walk round an ancient property, followed by a slice of cake and a cup of tea in their tea room. We often review our day trips, either around North Bucks, where we live, or further afield when we’re on holiday.
