A dilemma

I’m in a dilemma.  It’s a nice dilemma, not a ‘do I tell my best friend I saw her husband with a mystery lady?’ type thing or a ‘should I tell my colleague that they may want to change their shirts daily rather than weekly’ dilemma.  But, a dilemma […]

I think we’ve found the perfect (easiest) holiday destination

I know the title of this blog post is a big claim but I’m pretty sure we’ve found the perfect holiday destination.  Or, at least the perfect holiday destination with a toddler in tow.  Ibiza. We’ve just returned from a week in Santa Eulalia and we had […]
