262: Summer Holiday Hacks with Susie Lodge

What's the best way to avoid family days out turning into disasters? How do you stop kids asking for snacks all day? And what do mums have in common with combine harvesters? Helping us to survive the last few weeks of the summer holidays is Susie Lodge!

We get some great tips for pleasing children with different ages and interests, saving money at the cinema, and generally making outings more bearable. 

We discuss the virtues of the pack mentality versus the divide and conquer strategy, and share war stories of our worst days out ever. And Susie tells us about her brilliant network for mums in business, wikimama

The game Ellie bangs on about is called Heads Up! and it's free to download via the Apple and Google Play stores.
