2019 – The Year of Travel

Nothing cleanses my soul like a good holiday! Whether it’s a staycation in the UK, a couple of weeks with family in Tuscany or a romantic city break with the hubby, I always feel revitalised, re-motivated and content after some time away. Working for myself technically gives me the flexibility when it comes to travel, however we’re becoming bound my school holidays and the busier both the hubby and I get at work, actually leaves less time for big holidays. BUT, I don’t want to compromise on travel, as I know it truly makes us happy and I feel the cultural experiences are so beneficial for the kids at this age.

Well since I’m now a fully-fledged vlogger…oh yeh, didn’t you know? (lols). I have a Youtube Channel, which in fact, I’ve had for years, but have only posted on intermittently as I’ve never quite found my groove with the video/vlogging thing. But spurred on by Joe Suggs of Youtube and now Strictly Come Dancing fame (#goals!), I’m getting my butt firmly into video. Anyway, I digress…the point is, I do enjoy making videos and I am in fact, starting to find some semblance of a groove…so I’m going to try and post more regularly onto my Youtube channel and create more video-based content. And what better season to start within, than Christmas. So I’ve started with a video/vlog of us getting ready for Christmas at the Woods…
