#WednesdayWords - Taking a Chance

Sometimes in life, you just need to take a chance. Don't worry about what will or wont happen as you wont know unless you try. Yes, you might fail, but, what if you don't? What if it's the best decision you made and you nearly missed out because you didn't want to take the chance?

Just remember, always take the shot!

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
I have been gutted the past few weeks, thinking that we wouldn't be able to afford our holiday in April. We have already paid for the accommodation (a caravan in Scarborough) but once you add in travel and everything we would need, including spending money, it all gets very expensive. 

We can just about afford it if we save all our spare money from now till then but then I get thinking, what if something breaks? What if something unexpected crops up and we are left skint. 

But then I thought no! No, I wont miss our holiday 'just in case' something crops up afterwards. If we book the train tickets online now we can get a great deal. I have also scoured the internet for cheap suitcases to make travelling easier and have worked out which buses we can get to and from places rather than having to pay for expensive taxis. 

All we need now, is the rest of the spending money and we are ready to go. No more what ifs? We are taking this shot, and we will have a great holiday.

  4. You need a break so go for it and have a great time. We are a bit like that at the moment as I had to finish work earlier than planned but you can't live life thinking what if this breaks down etc. Just spend money wisely, you can have a good holiday without going mad. Particularly when my son was little, before we went away I used to go the the Tesco website (if you collect clubcard points) and use them towards the holiday and any local attractions. Also pick up leaflets & newsletters from Tourist Info which usually give discount coupons in them. You probably do this anyway but 'every little helps', as they say. Enjoy. x

  5. I know what you mean, I can be far too much of a wuss to commit to holidays sometimes.

  6. Holidays can be so worthwhile. Yet as you say the costs can quickly mount up. Well done for taking the opportunity of cutting costs where possible. Looking for deals, considering travel means, routes etc. Being well prepared can make a great difference / improvement. Enjoy your holiday.

  9. We rarely have much spending money when we go away, but I think the break itself is enough just to get some time out and a bit of fresh air. There's lot of free activities included at most holiday parks, and we have BBQ's outside the caravan and a drink if we fancy, as it's cheaper than the club. Have a great holiday xx
