Today I am feeling back to earth with a massive bump! We have all had such a fabulous Christmas, New Year’s, time off school and two of us with birthdays over the holidays that we really couldn’t be anything other than partied out!
We’ve celebrated, opened presents, gone swimming, visited the beach, played in the garden and park, had parties, seen family and laced all the celebrations with masses of food and a touch of alcohol too if we’re honest! Jonny and I even managed a night away at a Q Hotel in Cambridge for a spa break. It was to celebrate his birthday which was on the second and we had a great time. The hotel had mucked up our room and treatments but went out of their way to rectify things when we complained so we’d go back to a Q again, just perhaps not the one in Cambridge which wasn’t as aesthetically pleasing as ones we’ve been to in the past.
The festive period was simply wonderful and I just wish that it wasn’t over already… But alas time goes fast when you’re having fun! I really don’t think we could have packed any more in to our holiday yet still, looking back at when I picked Florence up on the last day of term and we chanted ‘We’re FREE’ and ’17 days off, 17 days off’ as we exited the playground and now that we’re back in London it’s hard to imagine we’ve been anywhere at all! Why does that always happen the minute you get home form a holiday!
I have lots of pictures to look back on though including the one I take every year on the minute Florence was born on her birthday…. Wow, my girl is now five – not sure where that time has gone either?!
Happy New Year everyone, these are our special pictures from the holidays – warning, there’s a LOT of pictures here, this post is an indulgent one!
