Packing for a holiday

In our households we have become pretty good at packing with short notice, as you may remember when Emily was a baby, we would be moving around a lot. We didn't have a stable home until Emily was a month old, which was a struggle. We used to pile stacks and stacks of stuff into the boot of Sam's car. Which let me tell you when you have a pushchair in the boot to isn't a easy task. The backseats used to be covered in stuff too as they're was never enough room in the boot. Moving around and having to pack everything up was a pain in the bum, but it's also made it easier for me when we pack now. Also unlike before, I don't have to take a moses basket with me aswell. 

It will be our first holiday as a family, and I'm so excited but so nervous. I don't enjoy packing one bit! It makes me anxious and I am always worried that I am going to forget something! So I have decided to compile a little list of the bits and bobs that I intend take, and need to take, If I write a list I can't go wrong, right?

I'm really excited because we were given the opportunity to stay at Bluestone Wales, When you're reading this we are properly on the drive there, or already there! Anyone who follows me on Instagram will know I'm a bit addicted to taking pictures, so I apologize in advance for the Bluestone and baby spam! I will be writing posts about our experience, so be sure to look out for that!
