We've never been on this kind of holiday before; we've always opted for a week on the coast, playing on the beach, funfair and going in the arcades. It's the kind of holiday I'm used to as it's what we did as family when I was little but this year we decided a change of pace was needed.
We wanted a holiday that didn't include bright flashing lights, noise and having to spend, spend, spend because everything is aimed at getting the children to ask for this, that and the other.
We wanted to spend time as a family, playing board games, reading, exploring the countryside and relaxing.
We're going in October for the half term week so we're going to be taking extra warm clothes and bedding!
We will go to Northern Ireland one day, maybe on a romantic holiday, just the two of us :)
Anyway, I now have lots of plans and lists to make (I LOVE list making) so Excel, here I come!
