Chapter 3 – The #SecretThing confession tape

If you’ve not heard about the #secretthing where have you been?*

I always thought I was the strong one when it came to keeping the #secretthing under wraps. But last night they broke me and forced a confession.

*If you’re still clueless you need to read the fabulous Chapter One – So here’s the thing over at Mummy Barrow’s blog and the sensational Chapter 2 Send Help! which is lodged with Mammasaurus blog. To be continued on all three blogs tomorrow.

Meanwhile debate rages over at Mumsnet regarding the #secretthing and potentially a sweepstake, we will bring booty back from our adventures for the winner.

Have you seen Mammasaurus or Mummy Barrow?
