Finally, my annual summer holiday, 2 weeks when I get to kick back, forget work, walk away from the emails and reconnect 24/7 with those around me. Oh yeah bring it on!
If you have followed my DadTalk blog for a while you might know that for the last few years our jollies have meant a week at Nana’s or a staycation.
