We wouldn’t normally have a weeks’ holiday in winter time, right at the beginning of February. For it isn’t the warmest time of year to go on vacation in the UK. Nor are we usually feeling very well off financially around now. However. There were a few issues recently with the ceilings in our new-build home (only creaking noises, nothing…

I mentioned in a post recently (my New Year’s resolutions) that one of the goals for this year is that we want to take the twins on their first holiday abroad. Hubby and I have both agreed that this year we are both feeling up for the challenge, and are indeed ready to take the children and go abroad for a family holiday.

We had a real passion for travel. We looked forward to our next holiday. Hubby would spend hours – literally – researching and deciding where we would spend our next…

Now that we’re parents of preschoolers, we are looking at the upcoming Easter break as a chance to get away…and have some time together as a family. We’ve all been so busy lately, Hubby especially, and we are in need of some quality time away together. We love UK breaks – I’m currently searching for a cottage to visit over Easter. To…

As you know from my previous post, we went to Center Parcs in the Lake District this weekend. To the ‘winter wonderland’, with our twins Harry & Lottie, and our good friends and their little boy. And as I type this tonight I am totally shattered from it! The trip didn’t start all that well though. I trimmed Harry’s hair…
