Animals and birds, Families, Family, Food

The highs and lows of a family holiday.

Life is the same isn’t it? Eat sleep repeat.

Broken up by some drinking, and lots of laughter! And a few disasters. The same that happen at home – so the family and individuals know how to respond.

It’s everyone who steps up to the mark and helps when you staying together. Making sure there is food for everyone. And the home is clean and tidy. Supporting the two littlest family members, through the fun times, the tears and tantrums. And yesterday the panic of a asthmatic 5 year old. But she rallied round to play another day!

Today is another adventure! We aren’t thinking of tomorrow….

Spot the mum. Watching cautiously while her offspring wanders off independently.

Let’s try this porridge again.

It’s foggy, very foggy in fact. If it wasn’t for the ducks, the comfortable pillows and duvets, and the tub of porridge – I could be anywhere. But I’m not! I’m in a hotel looking out over a lake that is there somewhere.

The porridge is a sort of tradition. I try one each time I’m away. It stops me from wanting a huge mug of coffe and a lemon poppy seed cake from the Starbucks across the road. I’m saving myself for more goodies later.

The story of this holiday is a little different. My little family and my father in law are all in the 4 bed chalet – we are in the hotel. There simply wasn’t the room.

So I get to chill till I’m ready to surface while the grandchildren wake early. The clocks have gone back an hour this weekend – so their body clocks are on summer time.

Then the rest of the day is spent enjoying their company.

Apart from today!!! I’m going to the Spa with the girls.
