We seem to be the only area in the whole country that doesn’t have holidays starting for a whole other week. I was very pleased with this when I saw the calendar months ago as it instantly meant we could go somewhere and potentially pay cheaper prices. What I didn’t anticipate though is that it would feel like a bit of a slog by this week and it feels like we are literally crawling towards the finish line. Just five more days of school to go and we will finally be on holidays. I cannot wait. I think Zs teachers cannot wait either. Everyone at school looks a bit weary and with school germs bouncing about everyone is ready for some good time off.
The other thing I didn’t anticipate is that we would have no clue where to actually go on holiday. I’m a bit nervous taking Baby E on his first trip abroad yet and don’t want to do crazy long connecting flights. That doesn’t stop me looking at deals to the Maldives on the Internet and trying to talk myself into just booking it! (It’s way too far and expensive though). We’ve looked at everything from New York to Miami to Abu Dhabi to Rome to Turkey to Agadir and finally decided on….London baby!
A nice safe trip to Legoland, Windsor and a few lovely days in London being typical tourists and eating lots of good food. It felt very right when we decided and I feel a bit strange for passing up a trip abroad but, for now, this feels right and maybe we will go somewhere in the summer. We haven’t quite booked anything yet but we have always been a bit last minute so that doesn’t bother me much.
Our aim for the next week is to make a firm of determination and crawl to that finishing line to the start of our Easter holidays. We can do this!!
