Spring break in the sun and the rain….
and the thunder and the lightning. I am just coming to the end of what will of been my first full week off this year and I have certainly welcomed this break.If you read my blog a couple of weeks ago you would of seen that we were on the look out for a new caravan which we managed to find a couple of weeks after. We took our new caravan away for the first time bank holiday weekend.We arrived at Higher Bentham in absolutely glorious sunshine and once we were all set up we opened a bottle of Moet to celebrate.
The first day we woke and had a lazy morning enjoying the sunshine and making plans for the rest of the day until the big black cloud came over and the heavens opened and we had one almighty storm , thundered and lightened luckily it did stop in time for us to go for a wander around the local village.
On Sunday as we all like walking we went to Ingleton falls which was about 20 minutes drive away, it was unbelievably busy so we parked a little way away and walked in. What a great place a little strenuous at times but a fab place to visit.
The village of Ingleton itself had lots to offer a great family day out. There was a outdoor heated swimming pool a lovely park and some lovely little shops and pubs.
The Monday we had family come up to see us which was nice to catch up.
The rest of the week I have been catching up on the many jobs at home ,ones that I have been putting off on my days off as when you are a homeworker you have to be so disciplined not to work. This is definitely a weakness of mine!!!
When I’m back to work next week its only for a few days as I’m then off to mainland spain for a little child free break with our best friends, bad planning but when you are trying to organise around childcare , birthdays , dog sitters and a social calender it proved really difficult.
As always though I will be looking forward to my next little break in my caravan when we can fit it in later in the year.
