I have achieved the impossible in our cramped home: a room of my own in which to work. I feel like Virginia Woolf would pat me on the back.
In the last five years I have gone from the sofa to the attic to the bedroom and finally took over half of the playroom. And while I am happiest with the space in here the children were not impressed. My equipment made it impossible for them to get at their toys and having them play in here while I work is less than ideal.
With Alt Summit just over a week away my mind is on what I’ll be taking in my suitcase. Who doesn’t love packing for a fun week in the California sun? If you’re coming and not sure what to pack here’s my advice.
If you’re flying in you might want to cut back on some of the weight in your luggage.
The sun was setting as we swooped over the small volcano island of Nisyros, giving us the perfect view of the crater. I gazed at this gaping hole dominating the island and wondered what it was like.
As soon as the Thomson Holidays reps talked about the day trip to Nisyros taking in not only the volcano but traditional Greek villages I knew we had to visit.
I don’t think I’ve properly relaxed on holiday since becoming a parent. It seems strange but when ever minute of the day is spent thinking about everyone else’s needs even time spent reading a good book is punctuated with thoughts of what to make for supper.
This summer all that changed. Thomson Holidays invited us to Blue Lagoon Village, Kos for a resort family holiday.
