So, you have finally decided it is time to plan that holiday of a lifetime and splash out on one of the best adventures you could ever hope to have. Planning this amazing break doesn’t have to be the mammoth task it may initially appear to be, but rather a breezy process where you can get the practicalities out of the way quickly and efficiently. Meaning you can get down to the business of crossing the days off on your calendar until you jet off somewhere magical.
Over the years I’ve stayed in a hotels, apartments and private villas. All have their advantages. But thinking about our first holiday as a family of four (whenever that may be), I’ve been swaying towards a villa holiday.
We love going away with my in-laws. The boys love spending time with their grandparents and we enjoy the adult company. Not to mention the possibility of a date night for me and Joe!
We’re getting to the point in our family life where we are craving a family holiday abroad. We knew it would be a while before we could afford/cope with a trip with both boys on a plane, but both my husband and I are getting ‘cravings’ for a proper getaway.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Bear doesn’t have the sort of personality I can cope with on a long journey. He’s energetic, bubbly, loud, easily annoyed and although he’s a bundle of joy, others may not see him as that.
So for our benefit (and the benefit of other passengers!) we’ve stuck to UK breaks for the last 3 years. Don’t get me wrong. We adore exploring our country and will continue to do so, but we just want a bit of sun, sea, sand and swimming!
Living in Essex means we can head to London on family days out pretty cheaply and quickly. We took Lamb a few times when he was younger, however we haven’t quite plucked up the courage to take Bear yet.
He’s been to London but not for a full day out. So I think it’s time we thought about family friendly things to do in London, and plan a day out there.
London is like a treasure trove for places to visit. Whether you want a park to play in, a museum to learn in, or something fun and exciting, there’s an array of choices to think about.
Lamb was recently sent a bundle of goodies from the new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles to try out and review. It’s safe to say he was hugely EGGcited!
He’s been asking me to buy him Hatchimals for months. Every time he sees them it’s “mummy I really want one of those!” Well kid, eat your heart out!
