Have been with Canvas for the past couple of years, and last year, as soon as I came home so I didn't forget, I wrote a list of things to take this year.

I put the list somewhere safe, and can't for the life of me remember where.

I know that I had a sharp knife,bathmat & coffee maker on the list, but what other essentials do you take?

DC are teenagers, so no need for baby paraphenalia.

Salt and pepper, washing tablets and clothes pegs were also on my original list. Thanks for reminding me.

If you have to clean the mobile home before you leave I find floor wipes great.

I will be taking a tin-opener as I find the French ones too hard to use. If your kids are fussy about something (eg mine only like a particular brand of ketchup) bring that too.

You might want to check what shape pillows they provide - we have often had square pillows which we've had to squeeze onto "normal" pillowcases.

Something to wrap sandwiches in if you will be having picnics.

We've always had a coffee maker provided so didn't need to bring one but I bring filter papers so we can have a cup straight away!

A container with some cooking oil in - otherwise if you buy some there you are left with almost a full bottle to throw away or try to bring home without spilling!

Thank you all. I found my list last night, and it was in a very logical place - in my address book, under H for Holidays!

Wipes (for cleaning when we leave)
Salt & pepper
Old towel to use as bath mat
Clothes pegs
espresso maker (a stovetop one - not an "appliance") and coffee
Mosuqito candles
Backpack - for day trips
Ice cube bags
Ice packs
Fleece blankest - we were freezing at night!
Bin bags
Washing tablets.
