The last Holiday we had was when Thomas had just turned one year old, nearly 4 years ago. Charlie has never been away.
I have always wanted to get the boys out to different places and to try and have as many seaside breaks as we can but it always ends up coming down to cost.
Whenever we do have spare money to book somewhere, something breaks and it ends up going on that instead. The dryer went, then the camera and last month the boiler too. Everything just adds up and means we are skint.
We managed finally to get a bit of spare money together and book a short break during the April school holidays which we then thought we would have to cancel as my husband has to work.
After much compromise we worked out that we could go away for an extra short break, only 2 nights, without affecting the hubsters job and at least have a few days away.
So, in 2 weeks, we go on our first seaside break and I for one, cannot wait.
It might not be some sunny paradise but it's perfect for us. I can't wait to take the boys to the beach, paddle in the sea, play in the amusements and eat as many fresh doughnuts as we can, and that's just me haha.
Our first ever family holiday, a few days away. Away from work, school, routine and my blog.
