Liam came back from his first Army deployment on New Years Eve and I excitedly drove down to Gatwick airport to pick him up in preparation for our week ahead. We spent New Years Eve celebrating in Milton Keynes city centre and had a lovely steak dinner at Cafe Rouge and then went out to a few bars.

If you’re buying for somebody who loves a pampering session, or maybe someone that deserves a bit of relaxation time, then this gift guide is for you. I absolutely love receiving pamper treats as gifts, and I always think it would be a really nice idea one year to make up a really nice pamper hamper full of bath bombs, lotions, and lots of lovely bits as a gift! I’ve never got round to it, but I think it would make…
