This year, we escaped from the crazy Chrisumerism that hits the UK from about September on. We also have a big girl's birthday on Boxing Day to celebrate so we booked a fabulous and luxurious cottage in the back end of nowhere in Wales and hid away for a week. Perfection.
We were so relaxed and I had floods of ideas although managed to write nothing while I was there - I have it all stored though.
We had hunts for The Gruffalo in the woods, plenty of outdoor time and family time together. Also, lots of boozes :-)
We saw a little snow but mostly enjoyed cuddling up and watching DVDs, reading to each other and playing board games. Time was lost on us. I can't think of a more relaxing holiday we've had as a family.
