We need a holiday!

Thursday, March 07, 2013

With the weather beginning to brighten up this week, all I have been thinking about is "we need a holiday!" The last time we went on holiday as a family was when Alice was only 3 months old. We went to the Isle of Wight for a week, and it was one of the best weeks of my life! It was the first time we were together as a family, alone. I remember being so nervous I had forgotten everything and worried about how I would cope with Alice without having my mum 2 minutes away! But it was amazing.

With Easter coming up, I would love to take Alice away again. She is so much older now and she loves new, exciting places to explore! I came across Cumbrian- Cottages, and they have some. I came across cumbrian-cottages , and they have some great offers on at the moment which are perfect for our potential Easter getaway. I really like the idea of renting a cottage and better still, they've recently released their new brochures for 2013 which we will definitely be having a look at coming up to Easter. I really like the idea of renting a cottage. I think it would make life so much easier to have our own space with Alice where she can roam around and explore and we can do our own thing in a homely environment. Their offers are actually really good, especially as we are trying to save money at the moment!

Gosh, I just realised how young I look in that picture above! Flash forward a year and I look like a granny! That's what motherhood does to you. We could definitely do with a nice break away. Soon!

  1. Aww, you look glowing in that picture - dont forget though that the weather was probably a bit nicer there and our skin always perks up with a hint of sunshine. You're still a yummy mummy!! If you wear foundation I can really reccommend Rimmel's Wake Me Up, does wonders for my skin in these awful winter months xx

  2. I discovered your blog a couple of days ago and have spent my time reading from the beginning, its amazing seeing how your daughter has grown and what motherhood is really like! Thank you so much for sharing :)

Beaches, hills, woodland, steam trains, lots of interesting places for Alice to explore and relaxing places for mum & dad :) http://www.dovey-cottages.co.uk/ have lots of goregous self-catering cottages with stunning views and easy access to all sorts of places, highly recommended!
