Why We are Changing to Cloth Nappies

Just recently I have been looking more and more into making the change from disposable nappies to cloth nappies and after looking into all the pros and cons, after speaking to those who have been converted for years and researching what is available on the market, I am about to take the leap and this is why: Continue reading “Why We are Changing to Cloth Nappies”

Preschool – Dealing With Common Illnesses And Infections

Your child’s first day at preschool comes with all its own emotions. It can be overwhelming for both you and your child. On the one hand, you are excited and proud, and on the other, you are dreading it and questioning where the time went and how in the blink of an eye, your baby has now become a little person with a mind of their own. While this may be an emotional time, it’s also a time to start being vigilant about taking extra measures to ensure that your child’s immune system is stronger and healthier.

The First Six Months as a Preemie Parent

Six months have somehow passed since our little ‘dinks’ arrived prematurely into our world and I cannot believe it. At times it still feels as though it was only last week that I was back and forth to the hospital, having emotional breakdowns, longing for my baby to be able to come home, yet here we are months later, sitting at home with a very happy and healthy little boy who has come on leaps and bounds.

Visiting Lake Kournas, Crete

We have recently got back from a gorgeous family holiday in Crete and I am just sitting here dreaming of going back to the sea and the sun… bliss! We booked a fantastic family-friendly resort and spent most our time in our ‘resort bubble’, just enjoying the pools, beach and evening meals and entertainment.

However, the hotel did offer a land train ride Continue reading “Visiting Lake Kournas, Crete”

Our Engagement Story

 

We have recently celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary and even though I have previously written about our wedding in Rhodes, I have never told you about our engagement, which incidentally also had a Greek feel!

In October 2011, we decided to take our annual holiday on the island of Zante. We were hoping for sunshine, tans, lazing on the beach… unfortunately, in reality we arrived to this: Continue reading “Our Engagement Story”

Amalfi coast

How to Make the Most Out of a Trip to the Amalfi Coast

Since the Roman times, the Amalfi Coast and its three islands – Procida, Ischia and Capri – have been a must-visit for many travellers.

Surrounded by tall mountains, the coastal towns in this area remain largely unspoilt, being a culinary, artistic and scenic delight. Visitors come to the area in their droves during the warmer summer months, so if you want to avoid the crowds it’s a good idea to visit out of season.

Here are some more top tips on how to make the most out of your trip to the Amalfi Coast: Continue reading “How to Make the Most Out of a Trip to the Amalfi Coast”
