Child Free Holidaying & Switching Off

The front lawn is perfect for picnics…

Father’s Day is a funny one for me I have my own dad to buy for and I also have the girls dad to buy for. They forget to mention you’ll be out of pocket twice when you have children. Obviously I am not with the girls dad any more but we do keep things as normal as possible for the kids and get them a little something…
