Last month will be forever burnt into my memory as Husband and I shipped the kids off to France with their Grandparents while we celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary in Croatia. The week before we left I juggled keeping the kids entertained and my excessive work to do list and when we got back life switched to healthy eating, back to school shopping and catching up with my besties. A summer to remember.
Just a week left until the kids go back to school. It is a special one for us this year as Little E starts Junior School and Little I has her first day at school! Eeek! With 2 girls in the house there is only one place they want to get their school backpacks, water bottles and pencil cases - Smiggle! Here's some of my favourite Smiggle picks for the Back to School season.
Here's my latest roundup of what I'm watching this month. This month we've been on holiday to Croatia but due to the magic of WIFI I was able to catch a few episodes of my latest Netflix shows by the pool.
This month Husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary with a child-free holiday to the beautiful country of Croatia. We stayed at the Sensimar Adriatic Beach adults only resort on Croatia's stunning Dalmatian coastline. Located at the foot of mount Biokovo in the small town of Živogošće, Sensimar Adriatic Beach is a TUI hotel on the South Coast of Croatia. It lies roughly 2 hours south of Split and half an hour from the port town of Markaska. To say we were pleased with our choice of holiday destination and adult only, all inclusive hotel would be an understatement.

Whenever you want to sit down for a minute and start a new chapter in your textbook, you hear the words “mum” and before you know it, an hour has passed.
