A Family Summer 2016

How has the Summer been and gone? We’ve just gone back to work, and this term is going to hit us with a big bang! I’m going to do a quick round-up of the whole summer. You’ll soon see how crazy we were having not much time off at all!

We’ve had 46 days off, including the weekends, (I’ve had 38.5 days off as I worked a week and bit!). We’ve had four holidays or mini breaks, we’ve had days out, we’ve seen nearly all of our family. We’ve had Baby play dates, grown up play dates, gaming festivals. We’ve had 5 days at home, a few days at work and an utterly crazy school holidays! Keep on reading!

Top tips for travelling with a Toddler

We do a lot of travelling so we should be an expert at this. However, we recently flew to Paris which is a whole new kettle of fish for us! So here are some of my top tips for travelling with a toddler!

1. Stock up well with treats! This is a fairly obvious one. Be armed and ready with bribes! Chocolate, sweets, Peppa Pig on the iPad… (Ah so that’s pretty much all of my tips in just one… Hmm now what to write?!)

2. Leave plenty of time! This is one we thought we did well… We didn’t! We ended up getting caught up at airport security waiting for Alfie’s water to be allowed through and running through the terminal to catch our flight. Husband having an asthma attack and being sick and mummy left sorting everything. THREE HOURS IS NEEDED!! You can entertain a toddler for three hours better than you can deal with your husband whinging on a plane for an hour and a half… So leave yourself lots of time to have a nice leisurely stroll through duty free and a coffee before you board. Please see number 8 for more on this!

Mr and Mrs Fox: The journey to the church and the surprise!

The journey from Swancar to the Church was around 45 minutes. 45 minutes is a long time in a Campervan with your dad and your flower girl, no phone and not very much to do!

Faye (our flower girl) was amazing at keeping us distracted with countless games of eye spy. What else do you play in the car with a 6 year old?! It made me realise how much of a big kid my dad is and how they are both big cheats too! Continue reading “Mr and Mrs Fox: The journey to the church and the surprise!”
