Luckily my mum and James identified it straight away, I hadn't even thought that is what it could be, I had a beautiful healthy baby boy, who was eating well, sleeping fantastically, we were ok financially, just had got a new 'family' car, so there was no reason as to why I should feel down. Luckily my extremely lovely Doctor diagnosed me fairly quickly, and also explained to me that I could be the richest person in the world, living the most wonderful life, and still be depressed. It was nothing to do with me, it is simply a chemical imbalance in the brain. She gave me some tablets which she assured me were non addictive, and within a week I could feel the old Abby returning.
Soon after, James told me I deserved a holiday, so we found the stunning Daios Cove (see here) and booked a half board holiday for when Max would be 4 months old. I was nervous about how we would cope with a 4 month old on a 4 hour flight, how we'd heat bottles up etc, but all that worry was totally unnecessary.

So after relentless searches for villas with private pools, that were safe for children - the only ones we can find fyi are in France, Corsica and some in Mallorca, where if someone falls into pool, a massive alarm goes off (it is the law in France to have this alarm). We then decided, god, he is hard enough to entertain here with all his toys with his 3 second attention span, what we will do with very few toys in a villa? So after searching for a holiday similar to Daios Cove, we decided, do you know what, it was so perfect, why aren't we just going there again?
So we've done it, we've booked it! Due to us both working now, we have treated ourselves to an upgrade, again with a private pool but have asked for a south facing one so we don't waste money on not being able to use it again!
If you are stuck for somewhere to go, you should really check it out, they also have great deals on at the moment until the end of February. May 10th cannot come quick enough! Actually, I'm 35 on the 18th, so it's a bit of a double edged sword as I'd like that to be as far away as possible!

Any other child friendly holiday suggestions?
