We love our holidays and nothing beats that anticipation of your next trip away. But before you can truly relax with a cocktail in hand, there is plenty of booking and preparing for your next holiday. I love all the organisation of a holiday, and I have lists upon lists to help me. So I thought I would share a few things that work for me, prior to booking the holiday, and what works after, when you have that all important countdown to look forward to.

Many home-owners do not know the worth of boiler cover plans, until their boiler breaks down during a chilly season. They then think whether it is worth paying for boiler repair or not? Yes! They do not know the potential benefits of the boiler breakdown cover. The regular annual service not only improves the functionality of the boiler, but it enhances the lifespan of the appliance. Nevertheless, one should get the boiler cover plan from companies like Corgi HomePlan Boiler Insurance to avoid the unwanted situation.

You may wonder why we keep on returning to the same hotel. The World is vast, with an abundance of beautiful locations, stunning hotels, and cities to explore. And whilst we love to to visit new places, the pull of Ikos Olivia is too hard to ignore. We first visited this luxury 5* hotel back in 2016, and after going to Mexico last year, I was ready to return to my little slice of heaven.

Materialistic gratification can only last so long, as new things will lose their shine and interest. There are some things we shouldn’t spend so much money on, and instead of buying items that will eventually be obsolete, spending it on something that will make lasting memories is far more valuable. When you’re about to spend a fortune on a “popular” toy or piece of new technology, think about what is important.

There is nothing in the world that can compare to the feeling of starting to understand another language, without having to think about it. While some language classes Continue reading

Looking back at my March and April goals, I was slightly disappointed that I didn’t complete more of them. But that thing called life got in the way, and my priorities were pulled in a different direction. We also had the small matter of our holiday in April, and I certainly didn’t think of any goals whilst I was sipping a cocktail on the beach in Greece.

As with any kind of interest or profession, improving your skills and understanding could be the way forward for a promotion. It’s also giving you a better position to be in for helping your clients and customers. Relief care is a growing part of the health industry, as now more and more people are taking chiropractic services and massage therapy much more seriously.

Relief Care

These services used to just be an add-on or an extra, in fact even right now they are not part of the NHS care system. There is no massage service that the NHS has for stress relief … Continue reading

A Little Loves catch up – Greek Holidays and Easter

I thought it was about time I did a Little Loves catch up, as I have really missed writing about what we have been up to. If you didn’t already know, we have just returned from our Greek holiday to Ikos Olivia in Halkidiki. This was our third visit to Ikos Olivia, and was every bit as amazing as our first visit back in 2016.

Dining at The Stretton Fox in Warrington – Review

Last Thursday we started off the glorious Bank Holiday weekend by dining at The Stretton Fox in Warrington. We had been invited by Vintage Inns to take a look at the newly refurbished pub, and to enjoy a complimentary meal.

As The Stretton Fox is only 10 minutes from where we live, we tend to visit once every few months, and we were both looking forward to seeing the newly decorated pub. Having had a lovely country feel to it, I was hoping that this had still been retained after … Continue reading

Why Spring is the perfect time to visit Paris

Paris, or the “city of love”, is one of the most exotic and desirable cities in the entire world. This is somewhere that everyone should experience at some point in their life, whether this is with your partner, with your family, with a group of friends or travelling solo.
