This post was first published as a guest post for Canadian RV rental company CanaDream. Full disclosure: I did not receive payment for writing this post, but I did receive a discount on my RV package in exchange for my writing work. As ever though, all opinions are mine and I would never recommend anything that I don’t genuinely believe in – our RV trip with our children was awesome!… Read more
What? We Actually Did It!
Before this post, I started writing about the people I encountered when selling everything we owned on Facebook Marketplace. But that was stirring up all the anger and frustration I was so keen to leave behind. So instead, I’m just going to write this rather triumphant, self-indulgent and emotional post.… Read more
First thing’s first. I’ve been toying with writing this for a while but, in the current circumstances, I feel a bit of a fraud.

LISTS LISTS LISTS
As I may have mentioned before, I love lists. I love writing them, re-writing them when I’ve made a mistake (EVERY BLOODY TIME), and crossing things off and feeling all accomplished when everything’s done (which, to be clear, is rare). One thing I keep meaning to do is create an extensive baby and toddler holiday packing list so every time we go away I don’t actually have to start from scratch in my mind.… Read more
