As a child some of my favourites memories were our holidays to Devon in a static caravan – and for Ell, although his family stayed in Cornwall. It’s actually a tradition we’ve carried on since having our own children – they love caravan holidays, and they love Cornwall. We were so excited to be invited for a weekend stay at Trevornick, Holywell Bay in one of their brand new static caravans.  Trevornick is a 5* family owned site 5.5 miles from Newquay, with over 600 camping and touring pitches, 36 fully equipped Eurotents, and from the start of the 2018…

That, along with the fact that we had owned the original Perfect Prep machine and found it life changing when we had Mason as a baby, I was so excited to see the new machine and the improvements…

I can’t believe this is the first post I’ve written in nearly a month. What with the Easter holidays, and the build up to Mason starting preschool, where I realised I wanted to enjoy my last bit of time with him, things have all been a bit manic. We missed last months post as we were at Disneyland, although I think I’ll pop the photos into a wordless post, as we got some lovely sibling shots whilst there. Having these three home for Easter was both amazing, exhausting and stressful in equal parts. We  have definitely reverted to a lot…
