The British weather
It is soooooo unpredictable we have no idea how it’s going to go.
You could have a week of glorious sunshine, the kind of weather you can trick yourself into believing your abroad, basking in the sun on a Spanish beach hundreds of miles from home.
You could have a week of torrential rain, so cold that it cuts your skin and seeps through to your underwear in seconds. To keep the children occupied in this weather costs a fortune as it’s all indoor activities you have to pay for. No parks, no beach, just crappy rain and wellies.
You could have ‘in the middle’ weather. Slightly humid, no sunshine. Just dull, dreary boring weather. It’s nice enough you can go outside, but there’s no pretending your abroad or going in the sea.
You could have a combination of all 3. This can be a good thing and a bad thing. It’s great if you get that one sunny beach day, but then again it’s heart breaking when it goes back to crappy rain again! And if you have something else planned on the sunny day, you can miss your beach day all together and be filled with regret.
What I’m trying to say is, save up and go abroad!!!! I’m sick of UK holidays, purely because of the weather. It stressed me out that it’s even an issue. I know we’re lucky that we’re even getting some time away, as I know a lot of people can’t, but I’m desperate to go abroad! I love the airport, the plane, the heat, the excitement of it. My youngest is DYING to go on a plane (he went on one as a baby but doesn’t remember it obviously) which is far more thrilling than a two hour drive away in my big mummy car. As a child I was lucky enough to have two holidays a year and I feel sad for my kiddies that I’m not showing them the world. I’m going to work as hard as I can to keep bringing money in and hope I can figure something out for next year.
Are you going away anywhere nice this year? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
