Travel // Our dream Al Fresco Family Holiday

I’ve had enough of the cold. Of the soggy school run. Of the weekly threat of snow. I’ve had enough of the dark afternoons. Of the central heating being on all day. Of jumpers. And coats. And scarves. And hats… Oh, I’ve definitely had enough of hats. The daily hat fight: “I don’t want to wear a hat! It’s itchy!” Give me strength. I am craving sunshine. Warmth.

Travel // Our Anniversary Weekend in the Lake District

Nick and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary at the end of September! Woohoo! It’s been quite the year, but we made it! We decided to go away for the weekend (sans children) to our favourite place: the Lake District. Some of you may remember it’s where we spent our amazing foodie Honeymoon, and although we didn’t end up at L’enclume this time (sadly), we still had a wonderful weekend away. On the Saturday we left the children and headed up to the Lakes.  ...
