1) I have everything I need, which when holidaying with a toddler and 7 month old is no mean feat! And
2) I satisfy my crazy OCD, worrying crazy lady self and actually get some sleep in the next week rather than laying awake worrying we might forget the sudocrem!
Thankfully the lodges at Bluestone are pretty well equipped so we don't need to take the big baby items like cots and high chairs but there are a few things I consider essential for my little family
Bed guard - we were planning on taking Ds bed guard but having spoken to the lovely people at Bluestone they are going to arrange for one to be in our lodge for when we arrive.
Baby monitors - sleeping in a strange place is always tough for toddlers so expecting odd wake up so will be be armed with the monitors for any night wakings.
Buckets and spades - we're definitely planning a trip to the beautiful Tenby beach if the weather is up to it so can't forget the essentials.
Phone / iPad / Camera charger - no explanation needed!
Torch - not only to find our way home after those crazy nights of cocktails! Okay those 5pm meals so we can back in time for bath and bed) but also for D to have in bed just in case she finds things a bit spooky in the unfamiliar bedroom
Calpol - we're in the midst of teething so this is almost as crucial as the final item ;)
Gin and tonic - nuff said
