We Are Going On A Sykes Holiday!

It’s that time of year, soon we will be off on our big family Sykes holiday! 

There will be 10 of us. 10. That’s many people. We haven’t been on holiday together in years, I can’t even remember the last time we all went away together. I must have been like 11, entering that awkward teenage stage so mum just stopped taking me away.

I can see why. 

We are working with Sykes to document our big fat sykes family holiday, we will be vlogging over on our youtube channel – so make sure you head over there and check it out. We will also be posting some stunning photos from north wales. North Wales might have to be one of the most beautiful places in the UK, with dramatic mountains and open spaces, it’s just stunning.

The girls are really looking forward to going away with their aunties, uncles and nanny and pappa, I am sure they will squeeze every penny they can out of them. I’m not even sorry.

Last year daddy couldn’t come away with us. Yes, sad face. However this year he will be there and he will have chance to relax and have fun. Something I think we all need.

I cannot express just how happy we are to one be going away for a proper holiday, but to be working with such a lovely company as Sykes cottages, who has a huge and fabulous array of holiday homes across the UK. They really have something for everyone, I am super picky. Like, really picky!

So if I love them, you will.

Right….. TO THE BEACH!!!!

Oh, before we go, where are you going this year?! We would love to know!!!




I’m On One!

It’s true. I am totally on one with moving house and having everything new.

We have saved hard and now I am on a tangent making sure everything we have is new, nice, ours.

Maybe it’s to start again?

I mean, can you start a fresh with old stuff reminding you of the past?

Or is it just the environment?

I don’t know, but I do know I am so desperate to have everything perfect, just so, so we can make new memories and forget the old, painful ones.

I have so much running around in my mind. So much I need to make sure I can do.

But our new home needs to be just that, new.

No more fighting with my surroundings, feeling uncomfortable in my own home. We finally have somewhere we can live happily.

We can enjoy the outdoors, indoors and everything in-between.

I am so thankful I have an amazing family. They are using their own time to make our home perfect, they are putting it first. I cannot really tell them how thankful we are. It just wouldn’t be enough.

So, this is really happening. We are going forward and starting fresh somewhere new.

I will leave you with a picture of the girls exploring the new garden…
