For this years summer holiday we decided to go for familiarity. We had visited the Parkdean site Ruda in Croyde, Devon twice last year and completely fell in love with the area. We did look at other options of places to go but we couldn’t resist going back this year. As a family we are big fans of UK caravan holidays. They aren’t for everyone but for us they are perfect. Little Man especially loves staying in a caravan and as a family we love Devon and Cornwall. We have visited quite a few Parkdean holiday parks now and they…

Your first year was all about getting you better, making sure you survived your early delivery but…

Little Lady has got to the Miss Independent stage, even things she still needs a bit of help with she refuses the help. She wants to show everyone how good she is at everything especially when it comes to eating. Part of the fun of the first year or so of children eating solids is the mess!
