It’s been a long time since we went on a package holiday. Actually we’ve only been on one other together as we usually holiday at my in-laws villa and in our pre-parenting days we would add to that with a European city break.
I’ve never really been a fan of them and when our holiday kicked off with a 3 hour delays and standing in more queues than is reasonable at 5am in a morning it was not going well.
However, with a few Proseccos to cheer me up the holiday started and it only got better from there on in.
To be honest, not as much as I normally do on holiday. Usually I would be a little bit sad about that but I’m not because we were too busy having fun to be sitting around reading.
I did finish The Husbands Secret, which was such a good book, I’d definitely recommend. I’ve made a start on The Wrong Knickers, it had me giggling straight away so I’m looking forward to having some time to finish it over the next few weeks.
I’ve spent a lot of time the past week watching the beautiful scenery we were surrounded by, it was so pretty. I love being by the sea and sitting next to the water with a glass of Rose whilst the sun goes down is getting pretty close to perfection.
Just before we left I bought myself a hat. I spotted it in New Look, tried it on, loved it and then put it back as I wasn’t sure I would wear it.
The next day I popped back to get it and I have worn it every day on hols, and I didn’t burn my head. Yeah!!
The 3 hour delay also gave me a bit of time to do some last minute shopping at the airport and I picked up a gorgeous swimsuit from Accessorize.
O asking every morning, “Mummy, is is morning time?” before rushing out of bed ready to start the day. As a family of three we had a double room with a put up bed for O. Although it was a little bit cramped I loved waking up to O’s little face next to mine every morning.
Please excuse the cheesy link, but we made some lovely memories whilst enjoying the sunshine. I’d forgotten how much fun it was to spend an afternoon playing in the pool and O loved playing in the water. I must have spent about an hour diving for the toys he kept dropping for me to go and retrieve.
For the past week, other than posting a few pics on Instagram I haven’t really checked much social media or bloggy stuff at all and it was so refreshing. After chatting to hubby, and spending time as a family, I realised how much we have started to neglect each other as a couple and perhaps as a family too. Over the past couple of months I’ve lost that loving feeling when it comes to my blog and have debated whether it is time to walk away from it all.
After spending two years together (me and the blog) it feels a bit too final to do that but I’m not entirely too sure what the future holds for Not A Frumpy Mum. I do have a few things to finish off and wrap up and then who knows…I may rediscover the love I used to have for my little space or I may not and actually I feel okay about that.
