When the new year came we decided to search the web to book a family holiday as soon as possible, as we couldn’t wait for the summer. As it was still fairly early in the season we therefore went for Gran Canaria — where we knew we’d get the sun (because we all fancied some Vitamin D after a VERY long winter in the UK).

I had planned to take the two weeks of the Easter holidays off blogging and social media management when the twins were off school, posting to instagram if and when I felt like it. However, (typically) new work ALWAYS comes in when you make these kind of solid plans. And when you’re freelance (and don’t know whether anything juicy will come in again for a…

I casually reminded Dave the other day that we’ve only got 4 weeks until our family holiday to Gran Canaria at Easter — 4 weeks TO GO! Which is both exciting and has also sent me into a slight panic too (because of all the new stuff we need to get and pack). I know that most people right now are still buying chunky sweaters…

This is in a bid to inject some excitement into our year (because it’s SO nice having something to look forward to, isn’t it?). We promised the twins a beach holiday this year…

I’d been to Ibiza with the girls (my first ever holiday abroad) been on a hen party to Portugal, as well as to Spain once or twice – and…

Even though we’ve haven’t actually got anything booked right now for our family summer holidays, all this dreary weather in the UK currently (urghhh) is making me want to get online and quickly book a sun-soaked holiday. Something to look forward to, you know? I am longing for tanned legs, fruity cocktails and plenty of family fun by the pool. It feels so long ago since…

I can’t believe I am saying this but I’ve actually never been to Cornwall before. I know! Everyone that I have spoken to absolutely loves this part of the UK; with its pretty towns, seaside charm and beautiful coastline. I’ve stayed all over the UK during my childhood and in adult life and yet this is a place I have never been to. Until now!

Our family holidays are a little like buses; we haven’t had one for ages and then two come along at once! Our March 2017 is looking quite booked up now with plenty of family travel & adventures, and I am starting to get super excited about them! The first holiday we are embarking upon is a weeks trip to Cornwall. I can’t believe I am…
