Back from sunny Fuerteventura

This year we decided to go on holiday for 10 days to sunny Fuerteventura. I was a bit unsure about 10 days.  Wouldn’t we get bored? What are we going to do for 10 whole days in the same place? But it actually went quite fast.  Continue reading “Back from sunny Fuerteventura”

Happy New Year!

What a year 2016 has been for nearly everyone I know.  Let’s hope that 2017 sorts itself out and clears up the mess 2016 made and makes everyone feel better.  Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

Another Eventful Month

Just when you’re looking forward to  some routine and a little bit of peace, something else comes along to shake it all up again. With it being Diwali month, it was never going to be peaceful anyway but we managed to squeeze in a week’s holiday during the girls half term holiday without missing anything important.

Summer Holidays!

This is the first summer holidays where both girls are at home with me.  The younger one is only off because she is changing nurseries so I thought it would be nice for them to both be off and at home together.  Not sure what I was thinking and I’m only half way through.  Well the good points of being at home are: Continue reading “Summer Holidays!”

Mini Break

It’s been a few weeks since my mini break to India.  The fact that I went seems almost a dream but its definitely one of the perks of having a part time, flexible working from home job. I can easily take a week off work. Continue reading “Mini Break”

My Perfect Holiday

With holiday season looming and potentially nothing booked with the family yet, I started thinking what would be an ideal holiday if I could afford everything and anything. Continue reading “My Perfect Holiday”
