Family holidays

I am having a brain freeze as I stare at the white rectangle that is the ‘New Post’. Hubby came to my rescue and said, “Write about holidays”…..”What about holidays?” “Trying to find one”.

Like most women I like to plan ahead, particularly when it comes to holidays. Of course I find it more exhilarating to do things last minute. But, we live in one of the most densely populated islands in the world and the world and his wife tend to congregate in the same areas. There is not that many activities in the South-East for families to choose from so they descend like locusts on the popular places.

Our attempt at finding a campsite for 2 adults and 2 children plus 2 dogs in an areas of the SE that forecast good weather. “Full,,,,,,Full,,,,,,Full”. We didn’t just restrict our search to campsites either. Hotels, caravan hire, motorhomes, you name it we tried it but to no avail. That’s what happens when you try to book something last minute over a bank holiday weekend in the school holidays.

But we have been side-tracked by selling our house and the viewings have started to come in. I have become obsessive about cleanliness and I literally evict everyone, including my husband, out of the house an hour prior to the viewing in a effort to preserve a near immaculate home. My efforts at house cleaning are not dissimilar to that of Annette Bening in American Beauty see: http://youtu.be/SS06JvtlAc8.

I am blogging every day to raise money for Unicef. View the site here and please feel free to donate to the campaign if you can.

Thanks for reading.
