I’ve always loved a holiday, who doesn’t!? But now that I’m a working mother of 2 children under 5, I’ve had to start going on more sensible trips away. When I travel I look for places with warm weather, a safe environment and activities for the kids to enjoy, a pool and good food. Recently we’ve stayed in Europe, renting places in France and visiting Center Parcs. When I’m not on holiday you can find me at our North Shields office, where I work as Dialogue Marketing Manager, at home reading, watching trashy TV or dining out in town.
