Our holiday at the Perdepera Resort in Sardinia | With Mark Warner

Mark Warner holiday Perdepera

I love my blog; this little tiny corner of the internet.

Since I began writing my very first post, almost 4 years ago, I’ve never had difficulty finding things to write — things to share.

I don’t have to look for content — I write about my family and the things I really love — so I’ve never struggled  for inspiration and the words have always come tumbling out, quicker than I can type them, more often than not.

Until now.

I have so much to tell you, SO much to share, that I can seem to find the words!

I’ve been downloading my photos from our Mark Warner holiday at Perdepera, Sardinia and have take so many, I just don’t know were to start.

*goes off for another coffee and a walk around the garden*

OK. Deep breath.

From the beginning.

At the start of the year, I entered a competition to become a Mark Warner Mum — one of their family ambassadors for 2016 — and (incredibly) I won.

You can have a look at my winning entry here.

Winning was quite a big deal. My big, man-shaped boy and I haven’t had a proper holiday (that has lasted longer than 4 days) for around 6 years and my two little boys have never been on holiday abroad before.

They’ve never been on a plane; never played on a hot and sunny beach.

So winning the Mark Warner competition really was a dream come true.

Not one but two amazing holidays; one sun, one ski.

So — after a little bit of deliberation — for the first, we chose to go to Perdepera in Sardinia.

We’ve travelled extensively in the past but neither of us has been to the island before and the idea of going somewhere totally different — with some of the best beaches in Europe — was too tempting to ignore.

In fact, weirdly, talk of the Sardinian beaches was on the radio just yesterday. People are stealing sand; little vials of pale golden treasure, as a memento of their time there.

I didn’t take any mementos of that variety, needless to say. The memories we’ve made will last a lifetime, and that’s enough for me.

But because I’ve got too much to say in just one sitting, I think this diary entry is going to be a preamble.

I’ll write a separate post about the resort — and what was on offer — and I’ll write another about the kids facilities, as they were far, far too amazing not to shout about.

But, for now, here’s a little look of our time away.

Finally, because our original entry contained a little film, it seemed obvious to make another.

Not a hand-drawn version, this time, but a proper real-life depiction of our week in sunny, beautiful Sardinia.


We’ve been working with Mark Warner this year as part of their ambassador programme. This is a collaborative post but all thoughts, words and lifestyle images are entirely my own.
