Summer Summer Summer (Smith & Family) Time

Ahhhh, sun, sea and …OK so that got you into this mess in the first place.

Now what I was not prepared to do once I had birthed those offspring of mine – was give up on going to nice places on holiday. Yes – good for the kids – but not having them in my face all day. My face was to be upright pointing at the sun – or buried in a good book. If you don’t have that – it’s NOT a holiday. It’s what I call – same rubbish – warmer climate!


Not a pretty sight! Or sound!

So how delighted was I, when the brilliant people at boutique hotel booking service Mr & Mrs Smith decided to extend their eye for a great place, into the family marketplace – with the launch of Smith & Family. And for you today my lovelies – I have an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Tamara Heber-Percy – the co-founder, all about holidays and travelling with kids. Let’s go….

Hook, Line and Sinker…

Even with this milder weather, the kids still need a coat and one of my pet hates is where they get slung on entering the house, for their slave – moi – to pick up.

Style Spotter – Stylish Sleeping Baby

How times have changed. The last time I was in the market for a grow bag the choice was tiny tractors or lambs and that was pretty much it. BLEARGH! Not any more…I had HUGE jealousy pangs when I spied these sleeping bags from Anatology €110.


Now, there is always a catch and it’s price in this case. Having said that – let’s do the maths. Crying baby in unstylish sleeping bag = unhappy parents. Crying baby in stylish sleeping bag = poorer, but more stylish unhappy parents. I count that as a WIN.

AND AND AND if you are L.O.V.I.N.G them like me, there is more good news.. the rest of their range is AS fabulous. All the designs have matching cushions, blankets and bibs. All from Anatology. Sleep well x
