Happy New Year! We hope you and the family have kicked off 2011 well and truly with a BANG! Over the holidays I’ve loved the lazy mornings with the kids and good old fashioned spending time with the family, although I do have to admit that I am slightly envious of one of the lucky mums I met this morning with their fabulous tan. However with lots of good value deals out there, including the Virgin Atlantic Sale, this is something I’ll have to correct in the forthcoming half term!

We’re off to Centre Parcs next weekend, having managed to nab a fantastic 3 night break for 6 for £300. For the kids, it truly is their favorite UK destination and for me, the Aqua Sana Spa is the perfect way to re-energise for the coming year. Look out for details of our trip in the coming weeks.

Finally, I just wanted say that our thoughts are with those suffering in the floods in Queensland Australia. Having visited family there myself, I have to say it is one of the most beautiful places on earth- a place you may wish to visit when the little ones are to so little anymore. Lets hope the worst is over soon for them.
