With much of January already done and dusted I find myself wondering whatever happened to the snow. Actually, I don’t miss it, but having invested in snow boots for the kids, it would be nice if they got to wear them at least once this year.... Maybe we could book a last minute deal with Ski Famille and head for the slopes. They currently have save up to 40% on last minute family skiing offers in catered chalets with free childcare at Les Gets and Reberty Village. Sounds really good to me- pity the kids are at school, else I’d be heading for the slopes. For those looking forward to the Easter break, now the perfect time to make a booking. I’ve always loved the beaches in the southwest of England and some great holiday ideas are highlighted below.

Finally, although a little late, we’d like to wish all our readers a splendid 2012 and hope that it involves plenty of holidays with the baby.
