For the past couple of months, we’ve started taking our dinners out on Sundays. One of our favourite things to do is pack a huge cooler box full of cold drinks, juices and the ingredients for a good gin & tonic, along with a basket full of food and head to a spot at the beach.

The longbottoms get to have a good paddle – or at least Rosco does, Sally gives him a bit of grief for it – the kids get to do some digging and we just spend amazing quality time outside as a family. I love it.

With the girls being a lot older and more independent now, we’re all really getting on so well and I can’t even remember life before them when it was just us.
