Holidays have been on my mind a lot recently, not least because I really should be packing for our own holiday. The above photo shows my progress so far... or maybe that should be lack of progress!
Whilst our house is getting looked after, we'll be house-sitting for friends who are going abroad this Easter. We leave for Northern Ireland later in the week and the only cost to us will be travel. We have our fuel money put aside and we managed to get £30 off the ferry booking with our Tesco clubcard vouchers. Although we're spending money, it's money we can afford to spend on a holiday and we're more than looking forward to the break from our usual routines and surroundings.
Last week's theme over at Nectar's Savvy Family was, funnily enough, about holidays too. I wrote about how we manage to afford an annual family holiday (I think we'll manage to get two this year) and how the Mister and I try to make the most of the occasional child-free time we get. And yes, this is a blatant request for readers. Our blog is feeling a little unloved at the moment, so if you could spare a few minutes to read what the Mister and I are writing over there, we'd really appreciate it.
