This week has been a source of some trepidation since realising how it was going to pan out. Not only is my husband away, but I had to take both girls to London on my own too. Whilst we were all looking forward to it, I couldn’t help thinking it was a big deal. A new experience On Tuesday, the girls and I filmed a video for the Vitality Healthy Kids campaign.

Is anybody else utterly ready for half term now? It’s not too long since the children went back to school but I’m all set for another break and hopefully a few days away. The past fortnight has consisted of bad weather and illness in our house. Days out in the fresh air when we’ve all been well have been such a relief! Featured posts Lots of lovely Wintery posts were linked up to our last family travel tips.
