I know – crazy – I feel like we’ve only just come back from travels all over the place, and here we were jetting off again! The weather in the UK this summer has been horrible. I always tell my children that it’ll be sunny right up until the school holidays start, then it’ll rain… Read More A long weekend in New York
I’ve been pretty quiet on here lately, life is busy busy busy! I’ve just come back from a great weekend away in Devon for a family surprise get together. Staying here, The Pig at Combe, Amazing English architecture, and the best kitchen garden I’ve ever seen! We booked this hotel months and months ago. A… Read More The Pig at Combe
I’ve never really been a fan of Mandalas or doilies as us British people tend to call them until……… I started seeing these amazing mandalas all over the place on instagram. I was going on another very long plane trip, and thought I’d have a go. Now the problem with this is that you can’t… Read More Mandalas

So while the UK started turning lovely shades of yellows and browns, we headed somewhere very green! Its the longest flight we’ve taken our children on, baring Australia when the blue one was 6… Read More A trip to Thailand!
The Easter holidays were almost over, previously we’ve always gone away – Lanzarote last year (the kids still talk about the mini club man Martin on a daily basis), Dubai the year before, Egypt the year before….. you get the ideas. Time to escape the Great British weather and get some sunshine. This year, my… Read More A few nights away up North
It was half term last week, and we deserted the usual British weather (which I’ve since been told was horrible), for some sunshine and a well needed rest in Cape Verde. We arrived in rain – one of the 7 days of rain the country apparently has – and it showed as nothing was ready… Read More Some time in the sun
