We don’t invest much of our money in holidays. Infact we didn’t even honeymoon. Also we are in our first year of having a school age child which comes with it the lovely holiday prices surprise.
So I was pretty gutted when I realised all we could afford was a caravan holiday. (Note to self I need to spend my money more wisely or just take Harbor out of school!)
We went to everyone’s favourite Woolacombe bay and stayed in the caravan holiday park. It was a long drive which gave me loads of time to talk rules. Si – No shouting at the kids, let them be loud and get sticky. Harbor – please don’t talk to strangers unless they are children and even then make sure mummy gives it the OK. Sonny – don’t make that screechy noise and please keep the lying on the floor to a minimum.
First impressions were good, hydrangeas everywhere (good Instagram opps) and we could see the sea!
The caravan was my favourite thing. The whole journey home I was eBay searching so we could buy our own. To which Si has come up with some bullshit claustrophobia reason why he doesn’t feel it’s a good idea.
But all those fantastic memories (even though it was only 3 days) has made me realise I need to change my priorities. I shouldn’t spend all my money on the boys and the house. I need to invest more into time, time spent as a family.
I’m glad to be home, refreshed and ready to make more effort to do less.
