One thing we’ve learnt this summer is how lovely it is to spend time together away from home & work.
We’ve only had two very short breaks this year but we’ve enjoyed them immensely, even with all the extra running around after the kids, which is far easier when there’s no work to squeeze into the mix!
I don’t actually think we’ve had a holiday that has lasted any more than a couple of days for a good few years now.
The last couple of summers have been tough. It’s not easy to tear yourself away when you’re busy starting up your own business, and more so when you really love what you do.
Having a holiday doesn’t seem quite so important when you’re not dragging yourself to work every day willing time to fast forward so you can make your journey home.
We’re loving what we do right now. Yes, there’s aspects of the business that mean we do work really hard, me and hubs don’t get to spend a huge amount of time together and we could probably do with a holiday but the desperate urge to get away and the days out but they also need good quality time with our undivided attention! They also want to get out and about and explore. And we live in a beautiful country, which you have to be in to really appreciate it.
There’s so many parts of the UK that we haven’t seen, let alone the kids. And although I don’t feel the desperate need for a holiday I would like to go and visit some new places, get out in the countryside and spend some good quality time doing stuff that the kids will love!
I have some amazing memories of my holidays as a child, they were all caravan holidays, mostly in Wales, which is a part of the UK I absolutely love. I’d love for my kids to look back as fondly on their childhoods and the family holidays as I do.
So next year is going to require far more effort on the holiday front. We’ll aim for a entire week away, it’ll be a caravan holiday in the UK and I’m sure they’ll love every second!
