Our house is in desperate need of some TLC. We have lived here for almost 12 years now and we haven’t really done a great deal to it, apart from a new bathroom a couple of years ago. Having the new bathroom has really put me off doing anymore work though as the people who did it were quite poor so left it in a state that I wasn’t happy with. So next time we do something I will make sure not to pay up before I am happy!
Hands up who remembers the 1985 Levi’s 501 advert where the guy walks into the dry cleaners takes off his clothes and sits down in his boxers with a magazine while his clothes wash? I must have been only about 8 at the time but I remember everything about it, the guy, the jeans, the giggling girls, the dude in the cowboy hat and most of all the music. I watched it for the first time in a long time today and boy did it bring back lots of childhood memories.
I just love this time of year, it means I can get out of my jeans and jumpers and start wearing dresses again. I am always on the lookout for dresses that I can wear during the day and then some that are a bit more glam for going out in an evening.

Going on holiday with a little one in tow can be incredibly stressful.

Make sure you check out this post if you are looking for more Easter activities.
Those of you that know me will know that I like to really research places before I visit them so I know what I can expect when I get there and so I can really get the best out of our trip. As much as I want to sit on a beach for two weeks and soak up the sun I really want to experience the people, the food and the culture of the place that I am visiting. Mexico is high on of our places to visit and may be the place we end up for our summer holiday this year and who knows, even our wedding… So because of that I am getting prepared and finding out everything that I want to do while we are there 🙂
