Happy Christmas Everyone!!
Its November so it’s perfectly reasonable to mention the ‘C’ word that being Christmas of course! Only 41 days but who is counting?! My four-year old that is who 🙂
September always seems to be the busy month for us and usually runs parallel to December where we have Zannas birthday, all the Christmas festivities, all the activities etc at School with Olivia then of course the big day itself.
I thought I would pop together some of the things that we have been up to lately in a bit of a round up so get ready for plenty of pictures!
At the beginning of February we spent a few days in Berlin child free thanks to my wonderful in-laws. It was a special christmas treat for us to get away and it was definitely much-needed. I would love to say it was very relaxing but it was go go go from the start but we didn’t mind as it was great to see the city in all its glory.
Gosh how narcissistic does that title sound?! I don’t mean it to be of course but I have welcomed lots of new followers over the last few months through this blog, instagram and Facebook and thought it would be only right to introduce myself a bit more.
Not sure how everyone is feeling but I certainly was not feeling all that festive…..that is until the snow made an appearance over the weekend. After collecting Olivia from nursery on Friday she insisted that we go into the garden to build our very own ‘Olaf’ which then turned into me having to make four snowmen to represent each member of our family, bless her!
You cant turn on the TV or check the news without seeing the words ‘Las Vegas’ mentioned everywhere after the mass shooting at the weekend. Back in August Chris and I were very fortunate enough to be able to enjoy a little break here. It was my birthday present tied in with a thank you from Chris for all that I do for the girls and him, not that I need a thank you but who says no to Vegas?! Plus I think it was to earn some brownie points for the FIVE stag weekends he has been away on….I know I’m a good wife 🙂 Even with all the talk about the city both postive and negative its still one of the most favourite and memorable places I have ever been and I wanted to share our trip with everyone.
While staying in Theoule Sur Mer we were just a 15 minute train journey from Cannes. I have always wanted to go and see all the super yachts and the glamorous boutiques so after splashing out a whopping €5 on our 4 train tickets..and that was 1st class of course, it was an early start to catch the train.
After much deliberation this year we finally decided on the South of France for our holidays. We started looking at different locations last year even before Zanna was born and we knew after last years holiday in Salou we didn’t want to do a package holiday. It just wasn’t for us this year. Maybe in a couple of years it will suit the girls better but at the minute Olivia just loves being outside running around so we knew we wanted a beach location and an apartment close at hand. That is exactly what we got when we booked Theoule Sur Mer.
“I CAN DO IT ON ME OWN”
My intention was to write a blog about our holidays in France and I will still do that but if I wrote about a holiday with a baby and a threenager it would sound like one big moan so I’ve decided to separate it out, have the moan first, then talk about how wonderful the South of France was 🙂
