AS blogging goes, there have been many highlights for me over the years and my recent trip with Optiwell is most definitely up there.
Just a few weeks ago, Elsie and I joined a lovely group of parenting bloggers and kids to stay at a luxury family hotel as guests of Optiwell who organised the special event to give us mamas some much appreciated relaxation as part of their new campaign #ThankGoodness.
THERE’S not many people who can claim to be an expert when it comes to parenting or childcare.
But on Tuesday, I met one woman who absolutely can.
One woman who has helped parents across the world get to grips with more tricky parenting dilemmas than you can shake a stick at. The wonderful Jo Frost, AKA ‘Supernanny’.
I was invited to an intimate event at ‘The Library’ (a gorgeous place if ever there was one!) in London to find out more about how Jo is working with the BookTrust on their new campaign #BathBookBed.
I FEEL it is only right that I warn you, that this is an EPIC post. EPIC!!
Quite possibly, my most epic yet. So before you begin, you might wanna pop the kettle on, make yourself a decent cuppa and get comfy. Because let me tell you, this post is a biggie.
Such a biggie in fact, that it’s taken me almost a full working day just to whittle down the photos and edit them.
But honestly, when it comes to Italy, can you blame me?
Italy is my favourite country in the world. No question. Plonk me anywhere on the Italian map and I’m as happy as Larry. (Whoever he is). I’ve visited many places in the past but hand on heart, I can tell you that no area in Italy has ‘spoken’ to me as much as Umbria.
IT’S hard to believe now that just a couple of weeks ago, I was in Italy with my little family.
As I sit here going through the hundreds of photos (!) and look outside my window at another grey day in Blighty, I can only wish I was back in beautiful Umbria enjoying the glorious Italian sunshine.
I was sent to Italy by the wonderful Bookings For You. A company that specialises in luxury accommodation in Italy (and beyond) and one whom I have been proud to work with previously.
AFTER a fabulous week away living ‘La Dolce Vita’, I’m back in blighty and just about getting back to reality! How the devil are you all?!
It feels a little silly writing this post today, as I sit huddled by the fire, with my woolies on (!), but seeing as we all need some sunshine, I thought I’d share a very ‘summery’ style post. (Think of it as my little dedication to the sunny days to come!)
The weather in Italy last week was incredible. Bar one wet day, we were blessed with gorgeous sunshine.
But that’s OK, because there’s a very good reason why, as next week the three of us are off to Italy, kindly invited by the brilliant Bookings For You.
Some of you may remember, I took a little trip back in October, with this super company and stayed in Lake Maggiore, a place we’d never been too previously. (You can catch it here, if you missed it!)
