What We Look Forward To Most About Trips Away

AD – This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  It’s no secret that as a family, we love holidays and trips away. It’s not just me and John though; Erin is always asking when we’re going on holiday again and where we’re going to. As I never had many holidays or weekends away growing up this is something both John and I are keen to make sure Erin experiences. We might have created a monster actually. I love that she gets so excited about going somewhere new. Just a few days ago I posted about trying to

Highlights Of 2018

As years go, I think 2018 has been pretty amazing for a lot of different reasons. Of course, we had some really bad times too with things around the house breaking and costing us money as well as being broke a lot of the time due to paying Erin’s nursery fees every month. Instead of focusing on things that couldn’t be helped I thought I’d write a post about the great things we’ve done in 2018. Majorca In April we went on our very first family holiday abroad to Port de Pollensa in Majorca. We chose somewhere only a couple

Where To Go On A Winter Family Holiday

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   It’s no secret that I like holidays. I like talking about them, I like researching them and most importantly, I like going on them! This year we have been very lucky to have been able to go on 3 very different holidays this year but something I have never done is to go on a winter holiday. I think this has probably been down to the jobs I’ve had in the past and always being so busy from September to Christmas. With that in mind, I’ve been looking recently

European Holiday Destinations For Families

A couple of days ago you may have read my post about Disneyland Paris and how we can’t decide about holidays for just before Erin starts school in 2020. Disneyland Paris has such a large cost attached to it so we have to consider other places as well. Balearic Islands Earlier this year we went to Puerto de Pollensa in Majorca and absolutely loved it. We went in April and the weather was close to perfect and there was so much for Erin to do. We loved how child friendly the area was and also that the flight was only

The Disneyland Paris Debate

John and I have been married for 5 years now (our anniversary is later this month) and we got married while we were in Florida. For us Disney is part of such an important time in our lives and it was definitely the best holiday we had together before Erin was born. We have both been desperate to go back ever since but unfortunately, it’s just too expensive to go back to Florida at the minute. I think for the three of us, for 2 weeks including park tickets for Disney and Universal, we are looking at something like £7000+

Things To Remember When Planning A Summer Holiday

Planning a summer holiday can be a massive task, especially if you’re going away with children. We went on our first holiday abroad earlier in the year and there are some things I wish I had done to make the whole trip a lot easier and a lot less stressful. Choose Clothes Wisely When I packed for our holiday abroad this year I don’t think I did a very good job of it, which isn’t really like me at all. We ended up taking so many clothes for Erin, most of which she didn’t wear but not nearly enough for

The Toddler Who Is Obsessed With Holidays

As a child I never really went on many holidays. We had a couple of trips to Butlins and some camping trips but I didn’t go abroad until I was 18. I remember the first time I went on holiday on my own and absolutely loving discovering somewhere else. Luckily, I married a man who likes holidays and exploring just as much as I do. It doesn’t take much to persuade him when it comes to booking a holiday and he’s happy to go anywhere as long as we do it together. When Erin was born, due to us having

Free Activities For Children On A Haven Holiday

Earlier this year we went on our first ever Haven holiday to Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk. Something we were interested in was the different activities suitable for Erin and more importantly, the free activities. We got a great deal on our break and we didn’t want to spend too much money while we were there. As Erin hadn’t ever done anything like this on holiday before we didn’t want to pay for lots of activities she didn’t enjoy. So, I thought I’d share some of the free activities for children on a Haven holiday (please check they’re available at the site
