The weather was beautiful - they were experiencing a heatwave and it was mid 20°s. It felt a lot like a summer day in the UK does, except for the clear, unbroken blue sky above us - a definite sign that we were not at home!

Kerstin Vintila

Being pregnant means you need to pack smart. Which also means planning the outfits you are going to wear in advance.

I usually take a couple of pairs of maternity pants, a few neutral tops (in black, white or nude, both long and short sleeve), a coat and a scarf. And then throw in a few accessories and I'm done.

I am very much of the opinion that hotels and toddlers do not mix. We've had the odd night at a Lenny Henry themed hotel off a motorway to break up an intolerable long journey but the thought of a week in a hotel with a little one or two doesn't appeal.

Last year I spent a lovely couple of weeks in France with friends. Thankfully friends who understand that I shout at them and their children. My current shout-ism is "c**k", which we've managed to pretend is "cake", "cot" and "cod" amongst many others.
