Gathering Spoons ๐Ÿ’ช

I’ve spent the post holiday period recovering. It sometimes feels so unfair that we need so much time to get-over things ๐Ÿ˜’. But thankfully, my infusion on Wednesday seems to have given me a little energy ๐Ÿ‘. Today I managed to tackle a few chores, so my house is looking more reasonable again ๐Ÿ˜‰

We booked a little weekend jaunt for this weekend, but on reflection, decided it wasn’t worth the zapping it’ll do, so we’ve decided to skip it. Much to the delight of all – a restful weekend with the boys hanging out with friends and perhaps a BBQ and a soak in the hot-tub is far more appealing ๐Ÿ‘

So rest it is, and forget galavanting around ๐Ÿ˜‰

My boys chose their Christmas presents yesterday, so being Miss Organised, I ordered everything! I can’t believe I have Christmas presents and it’s only August! But on the positive, I have very little to do now, so we’ll have a great time just enjoying the atmosphere without the stress of searching for gifts ๐Ÿ‘. I adore the holiday period! So I’m thoroughly looking forward to getting into October and Halloween, bonfire night and then the Christmas run-up ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Now what to do in September???

Driving is No FUN ๐Ÿš™

I’ve definitely decided that we will not drive to our holidays again! It really did make things a whole lot harder ๐Ÿ˜”. Our journey there took a crazy amount of time due to traffic, so I was totally wiped out! Then on our return, we had a puncture which led to a three and a half hour delay! So we felt so awful that we came straight home ๐Ÿก instead of staying over for our last night ๐Ÿ‘Ž

So our minds are set, it’s train journeys ๐Ÿš‰ every time from now on, except when we visit places locally ๐Ÿ‘.

We also found that being in a hotel rather than a caravan park ๐Ÿš was much harder too. I’m not able to go out for long periods as I feel too bad, so after a short morning trip out, the boys were stuck in the hotel room whilst I rested – not fun for them ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž. I then forced myself to go out and sit watching them play on their body boards ๐Ÿ„, when all I really wanted to do was sleep ๐Ÿ’ค. And the. In the evenings I was too wiped out to eat out so we lived on take-outs ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ, and I was sound asleep far too early ๐Ÿ˜ด

So definitely not the ideal holiday for two boys. But we made the best of it by having some great days out – my favourite was the zoo ๐Ÿฏ and park ๐ŸŒณ. Everyone had the best time, Rolo ๐Ÿถ included ๐Ÿ˜‰ and we enjoyed a really great lunch out ๐Ÿ at the boat side ๐Ÿšฃ cafe ๐Ÿ‘. A brilliant day ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Having experienced all this though, we’ve made plans for our next holidays…

Centerparcs at Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ time as usual – which we all adore! Followed by a night away for New Year ๐ŸŽ‰ with kids entertainment, buffet and disco ๐Ÿ‘. Then Raster next year I’ve booked Haven again, but this time on the Yorkshire coast – just 3 miles from the train station too ๐Ÿ˜‰. Perfect! And next summer we’re considering a trip via euro tunnel ๐Ÿš‡ to Paris ๐Ÿ—ผ for a couple of nights, Disneyland Paris ๐ŸŽข for another couple of nights then a couple of nights in London ๐ŸŒ‰ on our return ๐Ÿ‘. Sounds like bliss!

I can’t wait! And no driving ๐Ÿš˜!

Spoonie Breaks ๐Ÿ„

Holidays with a lack of spoons are possible with the right planning ๐Ÿ˜‰. A trip out in the morning, when energy levels are at there highest,


Then chilling with a book whilst the boys play in the afternoon ๐Ÿ‘. Followed by lots of rest in the hotel ๐Ÿ˜„.


It really does work ๐Ÿ˜‰. We’re having a great time! So it just goes to prove that holidays and being chronically sick can work ๐Ÿ‘
