Our summer is coming to an end & it’s been a glorious one, helped by some time away in sunny Portugal. The glue that made it all stick was spending lots of quality time together. As Mademoiselle is nearing 9 years old, family time together where we can reconnect and be friends as well as parents is so important.
So I’m already looking forward to the Half Term break. I want to recapture the togetherness that going away on holiday brought us, but at half the price of a trip to sunnier climbs.
One solution is a half term camping – or Yurting, to be precise.
In 2015 we endured enjoyed a trip to Yurt Camp Devon in the pouring rain. Despite the weather – or maybe because of it – we have some great memories, we had the freedom of being outdoors and being in a Yurt with our own log fire certainly helped keep the edge off the wet weather.
This year, it can’t possibly be as wet as it was last year, but even if it is we’ll be better prepared
Here are my 21 reasons why I would do again for the kids, in half term!
I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
