We've finally got round to booking our holidays. We've spent six of the last eight years down in Cornwall but we decided to have a change this year, not only in destination but also how we take the holiday. Usually, we're away for a fortnight and though we're still having two weeks away this year, we're taking two separate weeks.
The first week, in July, will be spent on the Lincolnshire Coast in a lodge by the edge of a lake. Don't worry, the garden is completely enclosed so Archie won't be able to jump in. Fishing permits are available for the opposite side of the lake, which will please Mick, and it's within walking distance to the beach.
Our second week will be taken in September and we're staying in a cottage by the sea in Norfolk. I've been fancying a holiday in Norfolk for the last few years and it's finally booked.
I wasn't sure whether Eleanor would join us or not this year but she's happy to do so. I'm really pleased as she's such good company. One of the very good friends she's made at university lives in Norfolk so she's going to see if she can meet up with her whilst we're there, which will be nice as the friend has now dropped out of uni and won't be returning in September.
Daniel's taking a holiday further afield this year. He and his girlfriend have booked their airline tickets to Colorado USA where his girlfriend is from. Her sister is getting married in September so they're going for the wedding, and it will give Daniel the opportunity to meet the rest of her family too. He's met her sister before when she came over here a couple of years ago and he met her grandparents when it was their graduation, they came over for the ceremony, but though they've been going out with each other for over three years now, he hasn't met the rest of the family.
How about you, are you going away this year and if so where are you going? I do love hearing about other people's holiday plans.
