    My Holiday Outfit Shopping Treats

    With less than a week to go till week set off for our family holiday, I decided to take myself off to Cheshire Oakes for some holiday outfit shopping treats. I went a few weeks ago and took Grace and my friend but it was not meant to be. Grace was on form and pushing all limits from running out of shops like a speed of lightening along with throwing herself on the floor having numerous tantrums. I needed (scrap that I wanted) some new pieces to complete my holiday attire and the list consisted 1 x pair of shoes, 2 x swimsuits & a top or two BUT like…

    Family Holiday in Torquay

    So I’m just about at the end of my holiday break from work and I’m sitting here thinking back over all the amazing memories that our little family have made over the past week. It all started a week ago when we headed off down south to Torquay, taking a similar pathway to how my grandparents set off for our summer holidays as a child, we headed out in the car at 5.15am. Traffic was more than kind to us and we landed at our destination at 9.30am. We booked ourselves in for what Charlie would call home at the TLH Toorak Hotel. We headed off to enjoy what was forecasted…
