The 120 sleep countdown’s over and here we are in sunny Wales – yes, sunny today. A year on since the last Mainwaring jolly and what an altered family we are. Daisy and the mini Mainwarings have been on the beach all afternoon in wetsuits digging vast holes in the sand, rock pooling, running through waves, playing rugby and having piles of fun. Brilliant pub round the corner, amazing views from the house; we’re all completely switched off already and none of us can quite believe its’ happening. Such a lot planned for the week; a Birthday for Harry on Wednesday which will no doubt be very dull and lacking in celebration, a full-on spa day for Clare and I tomorrow, cantering on the beach at some point hopefully, no cooking, planning, mithering or stress anywhere in sight. The men are golfing, the kids are happy and life is just brilliant. Noone would ever know!
