If you have seen my previous post about our honeymoon, then you will know that we are going away with our daughter for a month after our wedding for our ‘honeymoon’. Although we would love to go away for a week or two somewhere beautifully romantic together (well I would anyway!), realistically we wouldn’t want to leave Ava for that long and I’m not sure anybody would want to look after her for that long either! But a girl can… View Post

So, we are getting married in July and obviously we did things the wrong way round and had a child first. We could go away by ourselves for a romantic week somewhere hot, sandy and beautiful for our honeymoon. But we are not going to do that for a few reasons. For a start the husband-to-be is not a big fan of lying on the beach reading a book and doing very little else (silly boy) so we would never… View Post

Over New Years we went to Whitby with the family for a few days. We have actually done that for the last few years and it’s perfect for us at the moment as it means we can put Ava to bed (she’s a bit young to stay up that late yet) and still get to celebrate with people, rather than being stuck at home on our lonesomes.

However, that was not to be. Ava woke up, shouted to us and then started being sick! We brought her into our bed and grabbed a few towels and I tried not to cry about our ruined day (not… View Post

In this, my first ever vlog, you can check out a bit of Bluestone National Park Resort and what you can get up to there (when it’s raining!), have a nosey inside the lovely lodges and see the beautiful grounds. You can also see how much fun Ava had jumping in muddy puddles and visiting ‘Kingdom of the Elves’; a magical festive tale through the Elf Workshop in which you find out what happens to your letter when you post… View Post

Last year my little family were lucky enough to enjoy our first family holiday abroad together for my sister’s wedding, in Portugal. We had a wonderful time with loads of family, plenty of sunshine, beaches and relaxation time. Ava loved spending quality time with Mummy and Daddy on the beach and got more and more brave venturing into the waves with her Daddy each time. We would love to go abroad together again next year, just as our little family… View Post
