Back From A Weeks Holiday

We got back from our weeks holiday to the south coast yesterday feeling relaxed and refreshed. The break certainly felt hard earnt and it was nice to have a break from the daily chores of keeping this place running and working over the summer, it was also great to spend lots of time together as a family. 
The weather, on the other hand, wasn't great, but we had a few days of sun (well one full day!) and quite a where rain could have stopped play if we let it! 
We had a very typical English holiday and it reminded my wife and I of ones from our own childhoods - even where the car broke and I had to fix it (we could both tell stories of this happening when we were kids), with swimming on rainy days, wind swept beaches, fish & chips. 

Hopefully over the next week or so things will get back to normal. I have a few days of work left and then my wife is back off to work and I'm off again with the girls. I should have a bit more time to update the blog more regularly (I've been so busy I know I've neglected it this month), read and comment on my favourite blogs, and spend a bit more time in the garden and on the homestead. I've got produce coming out of my ears and I need to get stuck into preserving it, lots of projects to build in the workshop (for customers and for me), lambs to get killed & butchered, a porch to finish, the list goes on!

Anyone else had a good old fashioned holiday this year?


  1. My only holiday was when I headed to my daughters for 2 days and called in to you on the way, like I said on my visit I couldnt do what we do with little ones to look after you deserve a holiday rest and recuperation :-)

  2. Holidays are great but you have so much to do when you get home. At least the rest should give you the energy to do it!

  3. We had a lovely holiday in Wales at the beginning of June. Seems like years ago now. It's the unpacking and massive amount of washing I have when we come back that I don't like.

  4. We had an holiday in Portugal way back in April. I often think back to holidays with our kids and my late parents and us. We made some great memories like you are doing.

  5. Glad you all had a good time, shame the weather wasn't so good though. I see you went to Peppa Pig world. My four year old granddaughter has been there twice now, she can't wait to be tall enough to go on some of the bigger kids stuff. You do realise the girls will want to go there EVERY year now?
