The countdown is on! One week from today we will arrive in The Netherlands for five whole weeks of much needed family time. As always we like to keep things exciting until the very last minute so right now I have five little flu-patients to run after, oh the joys of a big family… Fingers crossed everyone will be fit and healthy shortly so we can enjoy every second of our holiday.

To keep up the spirits we are watching photo slideshows of our last European holiday, here are just a few of the things I am looking forward to:

Wallace logo

Millions of fans agree: No one makes animated mayhem like crackpot inventor Wallace and his faithful dog, Gromit. Join these Oscar® winning sensations for four madcap adventures in their cheesiest, breeziest and funniest DVD yet: Wallace & Gromit: The Collection.


Hang on for an out-of-this-world ride as Wallace’s mad craving for cheese leads to a space rocket adventure in A Grand Day Out. In The Wrong Trousers, Gromit smells something fishy after a penguin moves in and plots to make off with Wallace’s Techno-Trousers. Then it’s time for A Close Shave as Wallace & Gromit get wrapped up in a sheep-rustling scheme. Finally, trouble rises after Wallace & Gromit start a bread-baking business and are ensnared in a murder mystery that becomes…A Matter of Loaf and Death!

‘Wallace & Gromit: The Collection’ is now available on DVD (RRP $19.95) at major retailers across Australia.

The pretty purple Le Cirque outfit was one of miss Sybbie’s most loved looks these last few months and the peony pink and cranberry stripe combi is just as divine.

For the boys these would have to be my top sale stripes, made from soft jersey cotton with a touch of elastane for that much-needed stretch the Bear Print T-shirt (was $44.95, now $22.48) is super comfortable and washes and wears brilliantly. Team it up with the easy on/off Cargo Pants (was $79.95, now $39.98) with elastic waistband and you’ve got the ideal set for active boys who love going on adventures.
