Dear London Mums
Wow it’s already 2012, the year we have been waiting for for years, the year of the London Olympics and of the Diamond Jubilee to mark 60 years of The Queen’s reign. Have a wonderful year filled with joy, health, happy mummies and children and lots of sport! Let it be the year where we are all motivated to do more sport to be fitter and healthier. Let it not just be empty new year’s resolutions.
