So I've just returned from a gorgeous week in Sardinia with the boy. It was pure heaven although the first day was a bit of a nightmare. We had a 6am flight so we were already surviving on very little sleep, then we had to jump in a hire car at Alghero airport and drive for 3 hours to our hotel in Baia Sardinia. The journey was a little fraught to say the least. A journey involving one near crash and a fatality! Dramatic I know!

The near crash involved Jack falling asleep at the wheel, and so we very wisely decided to take a nap on the roadside. When we woke up we continued and came across a turtle crossing the road. With me screaming swerve (meaning right, to go around it), Jack swerved left with the intention of it going between the wheels and thereby smoothly missing it... we didn't. Both of us were almost in tears from shock, exhaustion and sheer guilt, but we continued on our way and were met with a gorgeous hotel, Hotel La Rocca and some much needed relaxation.

A little beach we found on our travels - I'm hiding in the shade!
