Fast forward a few weeks, Max went to his Nan’s for a sleepover and we were on our way to Life House Spa & Hotel in Thorpe-le-Soken. The design of Lifehouse Spa & Hotel is modern and simple and is surrounded by 12 acres of English Heritage gardens.
I’m used to lazy holidays, sipping cocktails, head in a book and sunbathing until the sun goes down. Going away with a newborn is a completely different experience, not much ‘me’ time to be had in between feeds and nappy changes. But our first family holiday was amazing and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
We booked to come to Orlando around the same time I found out I was pregnant. I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive going away with a new baby but we’ve always maintained we want Max to fit into our existing lifestyle – holidays included.
