Why you should go on a driving holiday.

This week I will be discussing the final drive to Ericeira (before we started heading back), and reasons why you should do a driving holiday, gulp, with children. I often get asked: why do you drive for your holiday? What are the benefits? Are you mad? Among many other things. I mean why would you…

A forever Asleep Parakeet.

Last Friday I went back to work for the first time, it was a KIT day, i’m not done on my maternity leave yet; I have mixed feelings about that particular subject. I generally get up early every morning now (early for me being seven-AM, I know, I am lucky) on the odd occasion I…

What is Normal For… a Miscarriage? part four.

This is a continuation of me sharing my thoughts from back when I first lost my son Kai at eighteen weeks pregnant, if you do not want to read about this because it will upset you, don’t worry that is absolutely fine. It didn’t take very long for me to lose energy for a blog,…

Traveling through central Spain and Portugal with a baby.

It was an early start. I don’t mind early starts when camping, to be honest, as it get too hot to stay in the tent after a while; although the day didn’t appear as hot as it had been. We only stayed on the campsite at Burgos one night, it was a very nice night,…

The Liebster award.

First of all, thank you, Kirsty-Louise bates over at Life With Kirsty, who has very kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award. Have a read of Kirsty’s blog, it is incredibly well written. She writes some really inspiring stiff and I really love her product reviews (especially as she does a few about Lush products…

Story time: The Last Big Adventure.

Last month I entered the Dorset Fiction Award, I wasn’t short listed, but I am really proud that I have actually finished a story (even if it is only 1,000 words). I don’t plan to enter it into any more competitions. I have a theory that, if I write a new story for every short…

Dear impressive squash’s from Aldi.

So, since October 31st I have felt a little brooding. I didn’t ‘take part’ in Halloween this year. I have recently started exploring the world of twitter, and social media in general; before this past month I hadn’t really stepped into social media to such an extent, so its been a little overwhelming. I think…

Traveling through Spain with a baby.

We set off very early Sunday morning, I was still trying very hard to drink my coffee. It was imperative we set off early in the morning; the traffic around the Bordeaux ring road is always busy at a weekend as people like to travel either north or south for the weekend (or for the…

What is normal for… getting healthy after having a baby?

Pregnancy, breastfeeding and the post natal period, put a huge strain on you body; so before you think i’m going to go on about how you should eat kale for breakfast, i’m not. I hate kale, I try to convince myself I like it (even sneaking it into smoothies) but I don’t it tastes like…

Traveling through Southern France with a Baby.

After the rush down to Abbeville, we had a really early night. Our goal was to reach our friends who live in Jussas; a small village situated between Bordeaux and Royan. We passed a lot of places I won’t mention in detail, but if you get a chance to visit them I would suggest: La…
