Holidays are nice.

Holidays are fun.

Holidays are exciting.

Holidays are relaxing.

On holiday you get the opportunity to do things you don’t normally do. To do things as a family. But holidays can also be stressful.

I for one, tend to run around like a raving loony trying to get EVERY LITTLE THING DONE that I NEED to do before we go away. Then I fall in to a big heap exhausted.


Do I give in to this exhaustion?  Hell no!

Holidays are for doing things.

Holidays are for fun.

Holidays are for adventure.
Holidays are exhausting because I’m over tired and need to fall in to a heap and don’t. Instead I do more than I normally would. This means when we get home I really do NEED to fall in to a big heap.

But I can’t. There are piles of washing to do.

Housework that didn’t get done before we left as I was so busy doing everything else that NEEDED doing before we left.

Then there is the business things to catch up on. You can’t have a holiday when you are self employed.

Holidays are fun.
But they sure are tiring.
Any chance of another holiday to get other the one I’ve just had?

    Holidays are fabulous but you need to find time to rest but I know you too well and you don’t.

    You need to start listening to your body and relax

    It all changes when you have kids I find! You don’t chill as much as normal when you are there and running around after littlies all the time is tiring! But saying that it is so nice to away from home and have that break! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst and see you again xx

    I know exactly what you mean. Even when we went away just for a few days, it took us a few days to sort things and pack and another few days for me to recover after! x
