I’ve Become an Ambassador for Jet2.com & Jet2holidays (& Win 4 Return Flights to the Canary Islands)
I'm the first ever ambassador of an airline (in the UK).
A wonderful break.
We've just returned from the most magical 2 weeks away in Avignon and Cannes in the South of France and then a long break in London ( soo lucky) and now I have a severe case of the post-holiday blues! *inse...
The last few weeks have felt like a bit of a dream if I'm honest. A gorgeous sunny adventure in one of my favourite parts of the world: the South of France with good as gold kids and my sweetheart of a husband. I've felt like a lucky, lucky lady after quite a busy year.
So, the third and final instalment of 'Things I've Learnt on Holiday with Kids...' is here because well, the holidays are nearly over and it's time to reflect again amigos so here goes...
So we've been in Cannes for the last week after a blissful 6 days in Avignon where we're returning on Thursday-and it must be said, holidaying by the coast with my kids is totally different to my usual champagne-fuelled film festival shenanigans (naturally)- but it's been just as awesome (despite the constant urge to get booty shaking by night)!
Firstly, big thanks to Eurostar for inviting us to the magical town of Avignon in the South of France- and to the Avignon Tourist Board for their advice and generosity too-merci beaucoup!
Bonjour my darling readers! I'm excited to announce that I've teamed up with Eurostar to offer a 'très bien' competition!
Summer is here. Hip hip hooray. I literally want to punch myself in the head for writing that but bear with me, I have 2 kids under 7!
What a glorious whirlwind!
Raithwaite Estate is one of our all-time favourite places to escape to, by the Yorkshire coast, in Whitby, just an hour and a half away from where we live.
Oh Wales-it seems so long ago now that we were there but it was literally only a week ago! Luckily, I treated myself to yet another notebook (I have a REAL and pretty consuming obsession with notebooks-and stationery in general)! but this one was a necessity- and meant I could scribble down notes during our lush week away making it easier to reflect back and write this post.
This family loves a holiday. We're nomads at heart and enjoy nothing more than exploring new places. We're also huge fans of the staycation.
As much as I love family holidays together, travelling with kids can be, well...a bit of a nightmare! Packing for the whole family can become a full blown military operation ( I start 2 weeks before the holiday, yes really)- while flying with young kids (my own are worse on short than long haul-go figure?) can frankly, induce fine lines and grey hair by arrival. Thank goodness for Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream pre and during flights, and in-seat yoga (and breathe)! Seriously though, to avoid the headache, travelling by Eurostar with kids is far less hassle than flying when travelling to mainland Europe.
My brother and his fiancée have recently had a beautiful bouncing baby boy Zachary, and we've been excitingly chatting about his first holiday next year.
