My Biggest Holiday Gripes

It’s been a couple of years since I have taken the girls abroad, and as you can imagine  by now I am itching for some fun in the sun. I’ve found myself searching all week for the perfect summer holiday for us (when I probably should be working) it’s dawned on me I am actually quite picky nowadays!

Fireworks & Fun At The Thistle Hotel

A weekend away at Furrow Fields Lodge

To say I was excited is a slight under statement I was massively in need of a little break and change of scenery, I took my friend Bianca along with us for an extra pair of hands with the girls. We arrived just before 5 after getting a little lost on the way turns out sat nav’s aren’t great! We called the number provided and a very helpful lady on the other end gave us…

Princess Cruises #RoyalLuncheon

On Sunday I was a very lucky girl indeed and was invited on board the Princess Cruises Royal Princess cruise ship to celebrate their 50th anniversary with a Royal Luncheon, to say I was looking forward to the day was an understatement, with the promise of a day full of cocktail making and little foodie surprises this little foodie practically skipped on board. Get ready for a picture heavy post of my day which will leave you dreaming of cruises and probably just a little bit hungry as well! This was my first time on a cruise ship and I…
