Rescue Remedy is a great handbag essential - especially for use during those stressful moments when you're stuck in a queue with unhappy children in tow.

Also, take some of that anti-bacterial gel (you can buy it everywhere these days....Boots, Tescos etc). It's great to use for washing little hands before snacks or after playing on grubby airport lounge floors!

Happy travels!

I always take walkie-talkies for in the parks. Bought my last lot out there, they have a 16 miles usage distance and were only £20.

We stay in a house so I usually take inflatables for the pool, washing powder (can only use Fairy on kids and DH), soda crystals.

The shopping in the outlets is fab. I take the minimum amount of clothes, toiletries etc (two bags at the most). Buy clothes, shoes and more suitcases out there (Walmart have the best, American Tourister and reasonably priced), these suitcases also expand.

Last time went out with two cases plus handluggage, came back with 7!

Have a fab time.

Doodypud - paper knickers! You can buy them in boots in the maternity section grin not stylish or sexy, but fine under skirts
