Any woman who’s had a baby is likely to tell you that her boobs are now shot to pieces, whether she’s breastfed or not. Some will tell you they are desperate for a boob job if only they could afford it. Others say they would like plastic surgery but are afraid of the risks.… Read more
Soaking up chilled time with our girls on our summer holiday to Avignon
The school summer holidays passed by in, what feels like, the blink of an eye. I switched off from the online world completely for the two weeks of our family holiday to France, and after my digital detox I only dipped in and out of the internet for the rest of the summer holidays.… Read more
We moved back to the UK from France when L was 3 & 1/2, and not having anywhere to live when we first arrived (hello Chez Mum & Dad) we decided to get rid of all of L’s old toys, clothes and baby stuff before leaving France.

Here is my final blog post on our recent holiday to Bluestone National Park in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with all the pros and cons of the stay, whether I think it is value for money and the fab video montage that my very clever Hubs put together of our time there.
