It’s fertile ground for intergenerational japes and discovery from Connie, Steve and Chris, but we’re not sure we could have predicted that it would have been the catalyst for finding out how recently Connie discovered where Fife was – hint: we can see it from the room we recorded in.There are far more tips in the Pass It On books than we can cover in the podcast, but remember, you can get 20% off the books this show is based on at dcthomsonshop.co.uk, using the discount code ‘thrifty’ at checkout; that code is valid till 12 Feb 2020!
