Camping With Kids – Part 1 – Where to Start?

So here's the deal. The school holidays are looming. The kids will drive you crazy. You can't afford to go on holiday. You can't remember the last time you went on holiday. Was it before the kids?

What do you do when divorce breaks those future dreams? When you have to let go of those plans you shared...? Having received my Decree Absolute on my 50th birthday last Christmas, the house sold, the assets split... I decided that my future is in my own hands.

Holidays - Going it Alone

For many divorced people the holiday can loom as a chore to deal with rather than a pleasure to look forward to.
