Places in Worthing: Lemon fizz gift shop
Bit of a different one this week for the newest addition to my Worthing series.  This time it's a shop! For years Worthing's shopping scene has been pretty poor, with the majority of the "high street" consisting of either cheapy pound shop style or empty sh...

We are quite conscientious regarding where we take Ophelia and what we teach her about the world, ensuring we read as much as we can regarding welfare and ethics regarding places like zoos before we decide whether to take her or not. The Sea life centre is ...
