For me the summer holidays aren’t going to impact our routine much. Wee Z only goes to nursery for 2 mornings a week so he won’t be missing out on much. Husband and I work around each other so we don’t have to worry about childcare and I’ll be avoiding soft play centres until the schools are back in. Instead, if the weather improves here, we’ll be spending time at the park or even in our back garden which has the luxury of complete privacy and space for the kids to play. We also live near the beach so we will definitely take advantage of a few visits there.
Next week Husband and I are both on holiday and GG has invited us all to her chalet up north for a few days. My niece and nephew are going too so the kids will have some other children to play with and there is a swimming pool and a kids club so I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun.We thought about going away somewhere; sometimes it is just as expensive to stay in the UK as it is to go abroad but we decided to wait until September when the schools are back and the weather is a bit cooler for the kids. We’re going to Fuerteventura which I’m really looking forward to as it will be our first family holiday abroad.
I’m already looking at holidays for next year and I’m looking into planning our first trip to Disneyland for when the kids are a bit older. Holidays are so expensive nowadays so I definitely think it helps to plan well ahead so you can start saving. We won’t go away every year but I definitely want the kids to enjoy the holidays I enjoyed when I was younger. Where is everyone else away to this year? Are you staying local or heading abroad or somewhere else in the UK? Feel free to leave me some recommendations!
