How My Attitude Towards Holidays Has Changed Since Becoming A Parent

I remember going on my first ever holiday abroad and that was for my 18th birthday. My boyfriend at the time and I headed off to Benidorm for a week and I had the best time. We went out of season as my birthday is in March and I loved the relaxed, quiet feeling and just being able to relax on the beach and do whatever I wanted. That first holiday really made me want to travel more, both abroad and in this country. Since then, I have been able to go on holiday to some fantastic places and John

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

Exploring More Of Our Local Area In 2019

Growing up we didn’t go on loads of days out and there wasn’t any short breaks away to nearby cities. As soon as I was able to, I wanted to go anywhere else I could to see what other places were like. Now, I am lucky to live in a place as beautiful as Norfolk but after living here for 6 years I haven’t even begun to know what wonderful places there are close by. I know that this is largely due to not being able to drive as a lot of places just aren’t accessible by public transport. This

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

We’re Only Having One Child… And That’s Absolutely Fine!

It seems like my social media feeds are full of pregnancy and newborn babies at the moment and I am reading loads of blog posts about second children. I love seeing other blogger’s huge announcements and squishy new babies but at the same time it makes me realise that the questions about us having another child probably aren’t going to stop any time soon. The thing is, we won’t be having any more children and we’re more than happy just to have Erin. People seem to think that a family isn’t complete until children have siblings to play with but

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+
