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.

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.

We haven’t been abroad as a family with L. I haven’t travelled overseas with husb since we got married!! I’m lucky to have had a couple of little press trips that have seen me board a plane but I would just really love for us to get away as a family.

It’s my goal to do this before L starts school, a final hurrah if you will. I just think he would love the whole experience and it’s something I want to share with him.

I’m very much in love with UK holidays, we have had some epic ones, but I would like to spread my wings a bit too.

All Inclusive

We’ve never done this, never, not once. Half board occasionally. Self catering a lot. But since we’ve added a child into the mix self catering doesn’t tend to be that much of a holiday for me.

I’m still cooking. I’m still washing up. I’m still cleaning.

I would love to do all inclusive. Mainly just so that I actually get a holiday!!

I’ve come to realise what I am craving from a holiday is very different to what I would usually want from a break.

We are day trippers. Explorers. We like to explore wherever we are staying and we don’t really take a break.

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

What I would like is to be abroad, somewhere hot, I want to sit my bum on the beach and hardly move. I want to read and sleep and drink cocktails. Maybe the odd day out and a little explore, but more down time than active time.

(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’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

  2. 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

  3. 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. 😜
