First blog of 2017!

Happy 2017!

So how was your Christmas and New Year?  I hope you had a fab one and are all set to make 2017 a year to remember!

Rocco and Tahlia’s Christmas presents were a hit and they loved the new play room we created for them.  We spent Christmas at home in the UK before flying to Spain on 30th December to see the new year in.  It was lovely spending the first day of the year on the beach and I even made an appearance on Talk Europe Radio whilst I was there.




So did any of you make any New Years resolutions? Over the Christmas period I definitely relaxed my exercise regime and my diet so I’m hitting my fitness app again to stay in shape.  It’s still available on the iPhone and Android if you are looking for a fitness fix this year.  If you have a limited amount of time or can’t get to the gym it’s ideal.

Throughout 2017 I’m going to continue with my fab flight giveaways each month with Monarch.  Remember all you need to do is subscribe to each month to be entered in to the draw.  December saw Steve Seal winning flights and a two night stay at the 5* Kempinski Hotel in Estapona. We are planning a few big prize draws throughout the year so keep an eye out.



This year I’ve also taken on a slightly unusual project.  Alex and I have bought a shop that we are turning into a fine coffee house, tea room, convenience store selling lovely artisan produce and we are reinstating a Post Office.  Anyone that follows me knows that I love a renovation and this is going to be a great project.  If you are interested in following the progress you can find the project on twitter and Instagram.  We’ve also got a Facebook page – just search for Lord Roberts on The Green.  It’s amazing to be doing something for the community and we are hoping to open early April.  Maybe I can welcome you for a cream tea or Ploughman’s lunch?



Rest assured I’m still going to be filming lots of A Place in the Sun.  In fact I’ll be jetting off with the children in a couple of weeks time.  Before we head to sunnier climes though we are going on an amazing trip with Monarch to Lapland.  I’m not sure how I’m going to cope in temperatures of -30 but there are so many amazing excursions and I’m hoping Alex and I will get a bit of skiing in too!

This weekend I am presenting a feature at The Telegraph Travel Show at London’s Excel.  I will be talking about luxury travel in Europe so if you fancy coming I might just be able to help you!  I have 100 tickets to give away for free.  Just put the below link in to the internet and hopefully I’ll get to meet you.


Well it’s short and sweet from me this time but be sure to check out my next blog when I will be talking all about our amazing Lapland experience with Monarch.


I hope you have a good week and aren’t affected too badly by the train strike.  It’s a nightmare!

Lots of love

Laura xx
