Taking A Break

I recently went on holiday, something I haven’t done for a very long time. I’ve never been out of the UK and the last two holidays I had were weekends away. Those two are the only ones I’ve had in probably 10 years. I’ve never been one of those people who go abroad every year but thats not by choice. Money has always been tight and things always get in the way. We only went to Cornwall this time for a week but it was amazing. It really made me realise you do need to go away every so often getting out of the city and not living the normal life you lead. Do something different and exciting, maybe something you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to do. If you don’t live by the sea like myself, go swimming in it, go on a boat ride. The possibilities are endless.

It is so calming to be by the sea for me, watching the boats and imagine the freedom you would have living like that, you can just get in your boat and go off, out in to the big blue, not a care in the world. If I’m not at work, I’m thinking about housework, blogging, socialising, being a good mum and my brain just doesn’t stop. Obviously things like being a mum I am 24/7 and its the most amazing thing I’ve ever done. This holiday I did think about blogging, but not to the extend where I was worrying if I didn’t have any content or didn’t get a post up. I just enjoyed my time with my family and experiencing new things.

One of my goals in life for a long time has been to travel more and just see the world. Whether thats a week on a sunny beach in another country or a quaint little village in England I just want to see what’s out there, I want Scott and I to show Lily the world too.  Off the back of this holiday I’ve now organised a holiday already for next year to go to Weymouth for a few days. It has really shown me how important it is to put yourself first and take time out from your normal routine. Not to mention it makes for great blog photos! 

Have you been on holiday recently? Or are you desperate to go somewhere soon? Let me know in the comments below.

    I love English holidays, we have so many amazing places to visit that are all pretty easy to get to 🙂 I'm off to Blackpool in September which is becoming a bit of a tradition as it's the weird year in a row going but I just love it 🙂 Gem x

    Holidays are always appreciated when your have a busy lifestyle and it is a bonus when the weather stays nice too.My next holiday will hopefully be to Germany. I have family there to visit and there is always somewhere new I haven't seen yet to explore.

    You looked like you had an amazing time away and I was so jealous! 😀 I bet the little one loved it as well. ^_^ The first picture of you and your little one is so gorgeous. <3I recently went for a weekend away to Somerset, which was lovely! I do regret not staying in Bristol though, as I love that place so much. I really want to save up for a holiday to Japan next year, if not the year after that.https://theremightbecoffee.wordpress.com/
