Last weekend we were in Dublin visiting family. In total there were 23 of us! It was also the first time Clementine had met most of them! The journey to Dublin was rather epic – we set off at 7am and actually arrived to our hotel at 8pm! We were travelling with other family members and we all drove up to Holyhead to get the ferry over to Dublin. However shortly after getting on the M40 there was an accident and we sat still on the motorway for over 2…

Instead Sophy has produced a book all about positivity and finding happiness in…

January is always a bit of a depressing month. Most people have just started a new diet/health regime and failed. You join a gym and go loads at the beginning of the month but then come the 3rd week works getting busy again and you forget. Then you realise actually you’d rather sit at home watching Netflix.
