I posted about booking our holiday last year in this post.
|Our holiday accommodation last year.|
I never got to post about the actual holiday as it was booked to start the day following my mother's funeral. Not the best start to a holiday, but I knew my mam would not have wanted us to cancel. We holidayed with my middle daughter, Rachael, and granddaughter, Felicity and posted earlier in January, it was just what I needed. The cottage was a wonderful place to retreat to and relax, we were fortunate with the weather and every evening was spent on the beach building sandcastles.
So where is this leading?
Well... we do enjoy a weekend away! Weekends away are our little indulgence, indeed they are my main reason for trying to live as frugally as possible. We don't need to spend a fortune or do anything fancy, it's just that a change of scenery and tempo helps us keep our sanity. We usually indulge in a little weekend R&R to celebrate our respective birthdays and as next weekend will be Dave's birthday, what better
reason excuse could there be?
We are heading back to the cottage we spent our summer holiday in. As we are not expecting the glorious sunshine we got earlier in the year we will have the perfect excuse to light this...
and cosy up with a good book.
Our good friends from Dunoon will be joining us there, we are so looking forward to catching up with them, some good food, good company and of course a little of the old vino.
