It was my Dad, George's birthday on Friday so I wanted to arrange something a little bit special for the big man this weekend, and Gorgeous Cottages were just the company to call.
Bonjour mes amis, I'm excitingly off to the Cannes Film Festival for a long weekend away and I simply cannot wait.
Last week saw 'part' of this family spend 7 days in Marbella, staying at the palatial Casa Haniel, a James Villa Holidays' villa in San Pedro, above, for a fabulous, relaxing, fun and invigorating week away.
Gambas Pil Pil!
You know you can explore the North Pole from the comfort of your living room right, all you need is a small den and a big imagination.
Yay for another week of #brilliantblogposts- we had a whopping 191 posts link up last week so thank you all for your continued support and love for this blog linky. This week I'm sharing a wonderful weekend retreat this family had last weekend in the Yorkshire countryside not far from where we live. We even made a little film while we were there.
Wonderful Women: Interview with Linda Kozlowski, Actress and Founder of Bespoke Tour Company Dream My Destiny
Linda Kozlowski is an acclaimed actress (best known as the leading lady in the Crocodile Dundee movie trilogy) and was married for many years to Australian film icon Paul Hogan. As a recently divorced mum, Linda is embracing her latest role with an adventurous new travel business in Morocco.
I don't have a daughter but I know that lots of my readers do, and being a big fan of heidi klein, (the UK’s first luxurious one-stop beachwear destination) I had to share their exclusive swimwear collection for girls ages 2-10 years. They are utterly beautiful!
The National Media Museum, situated in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film, frequented often as child, truly contributed to me becoming a filmmaker.
My child's Pre-School has two weeks off for October half term but instead of flying to South Africa ourselves to visit my husband's parents, we flew them over to Leeds so they could meet baby Alexander for the first time and have a holiday overseas themselves! It's been wonderful seeing them again and they've fallen head over heels with Baby A and relished in seeing their first grandchild Oliver again.
This time last year I was hosting the BritMums Get Fit Facebook group and busting a gut every day doing army-style workouts to get in shape. Fast forward twelve months and...well...yeah, not so much.
In fitting with my recent holiday themed posts, I bring you another fantastic family friendly destination: Tenerife.
It seems that as soon as kids start school or preschool in my case, another holiday crops up and I'm responsible for the entertainment. I'm not sure we can have another week sponsored by Cbeebies after doing nothing but watch the box and nurse colds over Christmas, so in spite of the weather I'm hoping to get the boys out and about!
Thrillaxing. What am I on about?
