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

What we look forward to the most about trips away

AD | Collaborative post  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 explore our local

Where To Go On A Winter Family Holiday

AD: 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

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

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

How Winning The Lottery Would Change Our Lives

I know that people say that money can’t buy you happiness but I don’t necessarily agree with that. You see, money is a bit of a struggle for us at the moment and I know that having more of it would make us all that little bit happier. I’m a bit of a daydreamer and often find myself thinking about how having a nice sum of money would change our lives. I’m not a greedy person and I certainly don’t need to win millions but Lottoland’s Lotto Plus has prizes of different amounts and the second

Why We Use A Pet Sitting Service

Back when we still had Jackson we were forced to put him in kennels if we wanted to go away for a weekend on holiday. Jackson luckily loved spending time there even if the staff said he was far too excitable for a dog of his age (he’s only just turning 3). Anyway, we sadly had to re-home Jackson and we no longer had to think about this kind of thing. Then, we took in my sister’s cat for a while and were back to thinking about what we would do when we went away.
