As a child, camping, well proper camping was never really on our family’s radar. Whilst we spent one summer holiday in a French camping site tent complete with all mod-cons, and the occasional tent set up in the garden for me to play in during the day, we were never ‘camping people’. And getting off your face and sleeping it off in a tent at
Pre-pregnancy I was someone who liked to keep reasonably fit and healthy. Not a total gym bunny, but I would definitely try and work out 3 times a week with a mixture of running and going to the gym.

Earlier this year, our family was over the moon to have been chosen as ambassadors for ‘Springfree’ Trampolines.
