Peace and Quiet.
For someone who used to be a total sun worshipper I knew that this holiday was going to be a little 'different.' Obviously I still wanted to get a little bit of sunshine but at the same time I wanted to make sure my gorgeous lady with her delicate fair skin was kept out of the sun for most of the time.
Difficult when Mummy wants to sit in the sun and Mads wants to cuddle/play/generally be with Mummy and is determined not to keep her hat on or sit under the umbrella. Therefore not much sunbathing was done, and I spent most of my holiday in the shade. Not that it mattered as we had a lot of fun playing.
However in the afternoon Mads had a nice long sleep. If we were at the villa she would sleep in her travel cot but if we were at the beach she would snooze in her buggy under a towel. She was as good as gold and it meant that we got some valuable 'peace and quiet' in order to enjoy our books and sit in the sunshine.
Our holiday was definitely not as peaceful as past ones. But you know what?
I wouldn't have it any other way.
