Meet Gemma

I am Gemma. I’m married to Nick and we have two children, Alana (13) and Thomas (10) and we live in the South East of England.

I started A Little Bit Social in early 2019 when I decided I needed an outlet. Family life isn’t always easy and adding a special needs child to the mix and it’s even more complicated. A Little Bit Social began when I realised that there are other families out there who might want a chat, tips or advice and maybe wanted to get out of the house for a weekend.

A Little Bit Social is a lifestyle and family travel blog following the lives of us as a family as we navigate life with a disabled son and a daughter who dreams of a career in performing (as we can’t forget about her). She struggles with her own barriers to learning as she has learning difficulties and memory processing issues.

A Little Bit Social is here to help you with all your travel planning needs. You will find destination guides, hotel reviews, product reviews and plenty of tips and inspiration for travelling with kids.
