    Whoops hit post too early there! For Ben's 16th we went in the Fforest Coaster at Zip World forest - if you are in North Wales and you want a great family activity look it up. Then Ben had his favourite ice cream crepe (with candles) - I had a banana split with half a scoop of ice cream and strawberries. It was heavenly - and whilst I spiked at 9.8 after it, 3 hours later I was back in the 5s, and there is no knock on this morning, so I'm very happy with that :)
