Couleurs Jardin | Gigaro

On Friday, just over a week ago, we ate at what I think has become my favourite 'holiday' restaurant - Couleurs Jardin in Gigaro, France.

We very gratefully got the chance to head to the south of France for three nights to David's parent's apartment while they minded the boys - I know... they're amazing. And looking through the photos I took there last weekend I'm realising that this time there aren't that many, which for once is a good thing!

As soon as I got on the plane, and for the rest of the trip, I wanted to switch off completely - no kids, so why not. No phones, no laptops, no iPads - I wanted to lie on the beach, feel the windy cobbled street under my feet, breathe in lots of sea air and really appreciate being there. I realise that this is not such a great idea if you're a blogger, but a super one if you're a Mama! Being constantly on the move at the moment with the toddlers (both conveniently at the 'terrible twos' stage at the same time), getting a few days to chill out in my favourite place while eating lots and lots of delicious food was like heaven.

Father's Day Breakfast in Bed

It's Father's Day tomorrow and I can't think of a better way to show him you love him than with breakfast in bed. As long as you make a plan the day before the only hard part will be trying to sneak out in the morning with the little ones to get the newspaper!

Make his breakfast as simple or fancy as you like, give him an extra hour or two in bed and I'm almost certain he'll think that his lazy brekkie is so much better than any expensive aftershave or pair of slippers!

Loved from the Web

I hope you had a great sun-filled weekend and spent some of it outside in the glorious warm weather. We missed most of the sunshine here and headed to France where thunder storms were forecast for three of the four days we were there - typical!

Pizza Night | Family Friendly Food

Every Friday is 'Pizza night' for us. But not the supermarket or take away kind...

Weekend Web

This weekend we celebrated the wedding of one of our best friends. It was beautiful, heart-warming (I shed a monumental amount of tears listening to the speeches - that's nearly fifty minutes of sobbing!), and such great fun.
