It’s Monday, the first day of the Easter holidays, and I’m catching up with a little work whilst Freddie and Sasha are playing outside with their bikes and scooters (oh, the juggling when you work, although I’m lucky to have lots of flexibility!). I’m not sure I’m going to manage this quite as well when you throw a baby/toddler into the mix too! I can’t
As a family who hopes to be able to do more and more travelling once baby number 3 arrives, there are several places on our family travel ‘bucket list’.

Gone are the days where I’d simply want to somewhere hot to lounge about with banging night life- now I’ve realised that I am super-flexible when it comes to thinking about our holidays.
