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.
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.
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?
Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday, #Blogstravaganza, and #StayClassyMama.

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.

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
Nice! Love a good caravan holiday
Hope you manage to book a dream holiday! We’ve not had a holiday for almost 10 years now. Yikes, should probably do something about that…. Thanks for linking up! #twinklytuesday xx
Hmm yes maybe you should book a little holiday!!
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
Oh I used to love it when he was at nursery and I could book a day off work when he was still going to be at nursery, loved a good explore of somewhere new

UK holidays are where it’s at, of course a may be biased! If Cornwall isn’t too far for you do look us up 😉 #Twinklytuesday
We love Cornwall, no where is too far from us. Trust me I’ve been looking at Coombe Mill already, I know L would just adore it!
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
Self catering just seems easier with kids, but I would love a break from it all, it would be lovely
I’m desperate for a holiday. We didn’t have one this year and I am definitely not missing out next year. Like you, I also just want something booked! Hope you get something in the diary soon x #fortheloveofBLOG

Just having it booked makes all the difference, something to look forward to
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
We’ve definitely got to fit something in before L starts school
Being tired is a part of a hectic life. Holidays can be stressful too.
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. 😜
Ha ha. That’s true!
