The Middle One

I read something the other day about the middle child always being left out.  Apparently the older one has hundreds of photos taken, the baby is always the baby, but number two child gets largely forgotten about.  As we're planning more beautiful bubs, Sophia won't be an only middle one, so at least she can share her misery!  I really don't think we leave her out at all though, but just in case, here's a post all about 'the middle one' :-)

Review & Competition: Miffy Books Re-Issued

Lara and Sophia both adore Miffy, the cute little bunny lovingly drawn by Dutch author and artist Dick Bruna.  This classic children’s character and style icon is currently being celebrated with an exhibition in her home town of Utrecht, and Waterstones are offering one family the opportunity to win a weekend in Amsterdam, with a day trip to Utrecht.  See below for how to enter.

Romantic Moments

I am delighted to be taking part in My Single Friend's Romantic Rendezvous Competition, as it brings back memories of my online dating career.  I say career because, being so determined to find the right man and have smalls, that was how I treated it in the end - and it worked!  I didn't use My Single Friend myself, but know of a couple of friends who have been very successful on there.  In case you haven't heard of it, you ask a friend to write your profile for you, on the basis that they know you best.  Great idea, and great fun!

Budgeting for Your Wedding Abroad – Your Checklist

Planning a wedding abroad can have many MANY advantages. The likelihood of sunshine is high, as well as giving you a chance to experience another culture and have that much needed holiday. But the biggest factor for eloping to a different shore isn’t just the tasty cocktails, or a chance to walk down the beach-turned-aisle barefooted, the warm sand slipping through your toes; it has to be the cost. In fact, you can save an estimated £12,000 by deciding to have your wedding abroad as appose to the UK and us Brits aren't wasting our time signing up for a relaxing Mediterranean do over the usual rainy castle affair.

And it isn’t just the Mediterranean. We’re eloping all over the globe to get hitched. From Bali to Italy, Las Vegas to Kenya, we certainly have the travel bug when it comes to our weddings.

How do you go about budgeting?
