As many of you will know, last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Britmums Live 2015 conference. A great opportunity to catch up with old faces and meet some new blogging faces. This year however, I decided to make a family trip of it and took hubs and Munch along for the ride.
We’ve been home just over a week and missing the heat of the South of France already. It’s been rather quiet and we miss the hustle and bustle of our little home from home in the centre of the La Baume camping resort.
If you read part 1 of our Eurocamp trip you’ll know that we spent most of our week on site enjoying the facilities and breathtaking pools. Munch really did love the kids splash pool and we made it a thing of visiting it everyday and following our trip up with an ice cream. Evenings were spent either at the kids mini disco or at the enclosed play park, followed by more ice cream before heading to bed for the night.Continue reading
Holidays are are about making special family memories to last a lifetime. The journey, the stay, the ice creams and the late nights all make up the perfect package for a holiday to remember. This holiday was set to be a week of firsts. First room share, first flight, first holiday abroad and first late night.
When I was asked to select a Eurocamp destination, I spent a long time considering and weighing up the best location for our first family trip abroad. With destinations ranging across the whole of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and even Croatia it was tricky to select the right one. We wanted something child friendly, with great facilities and nearby beaches, so La Baume, Frejus in the South of France seemed like the perfect place to start carving out our holiday memories. It had great pool facilities including a vast kids splash pool and was only a 15 minute drive to the coastline, opening up possible day trips to the like of Cannes and St Tropez. Neither hubs or I had been to France before. Holidays for me as a child consisted of the British resorts abroad, whilst Hubs always holidayed in the UK camping with his family.
I cant believe it’s Christmas next week! So with that in mind, here is the last of my Christmas gift guides…this week it’s the hubby’s turn! You can see the rest of this years gift guides here.
Hubs is car daft. Both sets of dads/brothers run garages, so he grew up fiddling with cars and went on to sell them for 10 years of his life. Although all behind him, he still has has love for them. So this would be an ideal present for him.
I’ve done a fair bit of coverage for BLACK+DECKER this year as part of my Britmums Live sponsorship and we have both really enjoyed it! The tools in the range are really easy to use. The attention to detail by making products charge from the same battery is just ingenious. We’ll continue to buy their products for our DIY projects around the house.
Ok, so maybe this is more for me! But he wore this on the day of our wedding and I love it! I can smell it at 100 paces.
Again, I would happily eat all of this! We are Scottish, therefore feel free to pigeon hole us as Irn Bru drinking, deep fried pizza eating, haggis hunting Scots (you’d be right!) This hamper is just great. Everything has memories attached to it and I can’t think of a better food hamper to receive.
5. Chilli Lover Hamper – £36.50 Not on the High Street
Ok, so this hamper is equally good (if you like spice in your life). The hubs is a lover of all things spicy and this would be a welcomed addition to our new kitchen.
Whisky/Whiskey…however you wish to spell it (legally it’s Whisky though!) another of the hubby’s loves is his malt. It’s an expensive hobby, but so is my home accessories addiction, so we’ll let it slide.
What’s on your list for the man in your life?
