This week we’ve all taken a break from the norm and it’s been awesome, as my 9yo would say!
We hired a house with family and spent time away in a wonderful home-from-home in the New Forest. We’ve used AirBnB before and I think it’s a brilliant way to holiday with children.
The week started on Sunday as Lent finished and the children broke their way back into their Sweetie Cupboard *symbolically, not literally!* They woke up to a Sweet Tree for Easter which just blew their minds! Yes, they did indulge in sweets that day and yes, they probably were sugared up by lunchtime, but they hadn’t had any sweets since the 1st April so I think they deserved it!
We don’t usually go away at Easter, claiming we can never guarantee the weather, but this week we got a lucky break! it was warm & dry, and the children have certainly caught the sun & got some colour in their cheeks!
Our stay in Lyndhurst saw us visit Paulton’s Park & Peppa Pig World, the coast along Milford on Sea & large parts of the New Forest with its wild ponies. I’ll write a review soon *just not now, I’m still on my break!* and I would sooo recommend the New Forest for a family break.
I even took a break away from blogging for a few days. I only scheduled one new post this week and stepped back from social media, so Mummyshire channels have been a little quiet on the last few days. But you know what, I survived and so did my blog! OK, I have some comments to catch up on and some emails to respond to, but taking a break for five working days has felt good.
So today, Friday, we’re getting back into our stride, as school & work are on the horizon for next week. But for now we’re back home, the washing is one, the children are sleeping in their own beds and I’m back on the blog.
It’s been a great break!
Hope you had a lovely Easter week
