At the end of September we had the opportunity to spend a long weekend down on the Devon coast in the popular seaside resort of Woolacombe and in one of the many holiday parks situated in and around the area. A few days before we were due to go, we started to discuss the possibility […]
My name is Carly and I live in the UK. I have 2 boys, 1 dog, 4 cats and many tropical fish….so far (I’m working on getting a new dog….watch this space!) *UPDATE – I have succeeding in my quest to have a 2nd dog! I work full-time from the comfort of my own home and love music and try and get to as many gigs as possible. The reason I have set up this blog is to document my life as a mum whilst also tackling my desire to go travelling and have an adventure. I’ve recently completed an Everest Base Camp trek for charity in October 2013 and I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro back in February 2011….what’s next?! Follow me on my journey!
