With the summer holidays now here – and in full swing – there are so many people getting away for much needed family breaks.

The twins both start in reception class at school this September, which is coming around SO quickly! When that times comes I will miss them incredibly during the week.

When we booked a weekend break for November I wasn’t quite sure if it was a good idea going away so close to Christmas and with the weather not being too warm. However, how wrong I was. We have just returned from a fantastic break away with some good friends to Appledore, North Devon – and in fact it was perfect timing for a long weekend and…

Since returning home this week many people have inquisitively asked me what the weather was like in Kos during the first week of October, and honestly I have been gushing about it.

For my Husband and children (who are less thrilled…
