This is the face of a relaxed Mum on holiday...without her children. What did I spend most of my time doing? Trawling the shops trying to find souvenirs to take home for the girls! Does anyone else do this or just me? #holidaywithoutkids, #souvenirshopping, #mummyblogging, #missthekids
So it's been a really looong time since I last wrote a Top 10 post over on my blog. My normal job (you know - the one that pays the bills) has taken over of late but I am back and, ooohhh, it's a good one! 🤗 I can say that because: a) It's about holidays and who doesn't like to read (and dream) about holidays b) I didn't write it! Yep, this post was written by travel writer and friend, @bowman.katie Katie has written about her Top 10 Holidays with Preschoolers, however, most of her fab suggestions work with kids of all ages. If you are looking to book a holiday soon then have a read (link in bio) and discover some interesting destinations you may never have thought of. We are off to North East Spain in late August staying in a villa with my extended family. Can't wait although I wish I had read Katie's Top 10 first! Where are you off to this year?
A couple of years ago my eldest said 'Mummy I don't like running. I don't like skipping. Infact I don't even like walking'. 🤔 I assumed, wrongly, that she just didn't like sport so I didn't push it. However, during the weekend we played badminton. For 2 hours! 🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸🏸 Initially she struggled to hit the shuttlecock at all but by the end of two hours we were having a proper rally. Her tenancity was utterly inspirational. Particularly from someone who claims they don't even like walking. We can learn a lot from our little people. Not least that I am totally out of shape and need to exercise more in order to keep up with her!

Winter in #lymeregis. I don't know if it's a coincidence or if Lyme Regis has it's own micro climate but it's ALWAYS sunny when we head here. 🌞 Where is your favourite sunny spot?
Sometimes I like living in London, othertimes, like, when commuting on the Northern Line, I am not so keen. But, oh, when the sun shines over London I fall right back in LOVE 🌞 #ilovelondon, #londonwithkids, #activitieswithkids, #sunsoutinlondon
Sensory overload at the incredible #soundpit @southbankcentre today. Who knew that a few sandpits plus some lights and sound would make for such a fun day out for kids and grown ups. No flash allowed which made for some rather interesting and slightly sci-fi pics!
