The Iron Bridge and Tar Tunnel

Last week we got the opportunity to visit the incredible Ironbridge.

We could only fit in 4 on our trip but cant wait to go back and see the rest.

I wanted to share some of the bits I have picked up for Joe’s holiday survival kit. Now this is a huge thing in the Christie family. Yes, Jack may have grown out of it, but for Joe the holiday survival kits is still a huge part of his holiday. It so important to keep kids occupied on journeys, this is why we invented the Christie family holiday survival kit.

You see Kath is fairly organised and knows where she wants to go, she is …
