This Plus That Equals…. Holiday Wishes

This plus that equals…. Holiday Wishes

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about my recent thoughts and dreams about a good old holiday. I have several holiday wishes as it turns out.

A long weekend on the broads


I am tired. I am overwhelmed. I would love a break soon. Just to get away and not be at home.

A week, a weekend, I don’t care. I would just love a holiday and to have one soon. I need one. A nice little self catering holiday would be fab, I’ve been looking at Holiday Park Guru for some advice on something I can book easily and soon!

I can’t actually remember a time when I’ve craved a holiday so badly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m probably thinking about holidays about 90% of the time, I do love to holiday, but I can’t remember every needing one like I do right now.

Last year was our first trip abroad as a family with L. We had such a great time that we are now just waiting for the holidays dates for 2020 to open up so we can something booked and have it to look forward to. 

I’m very much in love with UK holidays, so hopefully we’ll squeeze a few of those in this year, just to tide us over until we get to fly away somewhere hot next year.

All Inclusive

This made such a difference to us when we were away last year. 

I love a self catering break and the ease it gives you, a little home away from home. But with that comes washing up, shopping and actual cooking!

To be able to just nip to the nearest open restaurant and grab a salad, an ice cream or a full meal, whenever we fancied it was amazing. So for our big holiday it has to be all inclusive, hot and on the beach.

I’ve come to realise what I am craving from a holiday is difference.

We are day trippers. Explorers. We like to explore wherever we are staying and find out as much as we can. Where we are staying is a base to further travels. 

We are definitely UK self caterers. Be it in a caravan, on a boat or in a tent.

Even when we go away and go for all inclusive it’s nice to leave the resort and actually see the area in which we are staying. 

So that’s what we look for, something a bit out of the ordinary and something exciting. 

(Shhh, don’t tell, but I wouldn’t be averse to going on holiday by myself.)

Anything so long as it is booked

Just that really. I genuinely would be happy with anything just so long as it was booked.

A weekend away in January, 2 weeks in July. UK or USA. Self catering or all inclusive, I just need to book a flipping holiday!!!

Now to find the money……

Anyone else crave holidays this time of year?

  1. I have never had an inclusive holiday due to my food allergies making it easier to cater for ourselves. Chris and I have a weekend away planned in May so I can go to Blog On conference and Chris can go to a gaming event. We are going to a road trip to Scotland in the summer but haven’t planned it yet. Thanks for linking up with #stayclassymama

  2. Me!! I’ve just booked a week away in a caravan for June and we’re sneaking off to my Aunty’s caravan for a long weekend in March. I’ve had a shock at the prices now that we are a family of five, everything has gone up!! This will be our last year of being able to book term time holidays as Stanley starts school in Sept, so I’m hoping to squeeze a few more in to make the most of it…but also need to win the lottery! #StayClassyMama

  3. Hope you find your dream holiday this year. I love a staycation- send the kids to the childminder, take time off and do things on your doorstep you never normally do. #Stayclassymamma

  4. I’m with you on the self catering! Since the kids have come along that’s what we always do apart from last time we we went on holiday – half board. Now the kids are a little bigger though I’m starting to think we can get away with a nice hotel and meals out. I hope so anyway. Hope you can get some rest soon. Thank you for sharing with #StayClassymama

  5. Oh yes! I don’t even know when we will go on holiday again because now Zach is at school, it complicates everything and makes it so so expensive! But yes, I blooming love holidays! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  6. Just book it and go. You’ll find the money once it’s been booked (and you aren’t too lavish of course lol). Nothing like a bit of pressure to put the wheels in motion. 😜
