You know that feeling when you’re on the cusp of going on holiday and the relief and anticipation are both running high?
Well, that’s where we are right now.
I’ve been winding down at work all week, packing, planning, himself has been booking things, and just preparing ourselves to get away. We are all SO ready for a break.
That last half term to the end of the school year felt like a long slog, even after a wonderful week in Whitby at the beginning of June. I don’t really know why. It’s not even as though we’ve had loads of activities going on – Cubs and Beavers finished a couple of weeks ago and Rugby stopped for the summer ages ago, we’ve missed several swimming sessions with small boy’s birthday and our trip to Legoland. Work isn’t too busy, we’re getting by and the work’s getting done, just about. I don’t know why we feel so ready to get away.
I think memories of previous, awesome trips are hanging over us a bit. Last summer we had the exact same holiday as we have planned this year, first to himself’s parents in Aberdeenshire and then to mine in Lincolnshire. Not quite the same as the wonderful adventures in France of previous years, but joyous in a different way.
So packing is almost done, just a few more bits to get sorted, and then we’ll be off in our wonderful truck, stuffed to the gills with stuff that we really need and other stuff that we might not even touch. The remaining question is what will I forget? There’s always something.
There will be some blog posts still coming and I’ll surely be posting lots of pictures of our adventures over on Instagram.
I hope everyone else has a marvelous summer, whether you’re just starting your break or almost finished. What are you getting up to?
