Back in Barbados

Travelling with an under one doesn't have to be a nightmare, just ensure you bring their favourite toy or book and a change of clothes for both you and them as they are bound to spill something, as was the case with Daniel knocking his sisters juice out of her hands and onto my waiting lap! Thank God for hand luggage. 

Anyway I have arrived on the small island that I like to call home, Barbados, place of my birth and where a lot of my family still live.  It has been wonderful to meet up with my family after not having visited for 6 years.  It was especially great to see my brother, niece and mother waiting for me at the airport 

then to go home to my grandmothers house and see that my little cousins had put up a welcome sign in the front room.  

Giving my grandmother a hug topped it off :)

The first few days have been spent relaxing and eating good food.  I have to be careful not to eat too much whilst I'm here or I will be putting on weight which is certainly not part of the plan!  In fact I had put on weight before I left so I now have to make sure I get rid of some, the heat out here should help with that.

I love the way my princess has settled in with my little cousins and Daniel is turning into a little man right before my eyes but one thing is for sure he's definitely a cold weather baby!
