After our little break away in Suffolk, we have had a really quiet week. We were all pretty exhausted. I think after lockdown and barely doing anything for months, it’s been a bit of a shock having such a busy summer! But one thing lockdown has taught me, is that actually we don’t need to be out and about all the time, and the twiglets can be perfectly contented just chilling out at home. We’ve also had plenty of back to school prep to be getting on with!
The past week was really lovely as we got to spend a few days away together as a family. We decided against going anywhere too far as we couldn’t face a long car journey. So we headed for Suffolk, which is just a couple of hours away from us in Surrey.
I always see people sharing on social media about their perfect family beach days. But sometimes I find beach days can be a bit of a bloody nightmare to be honest! During our recent holiday in Suffolk, we decided to visit Southwold Beach. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely place and a great family day out. But we just had a really unfortunate day when we visited, and a catalogue of things went wrong!! So I thought I’d write about our disastrous family beach day, just in case you, like me, sometimes look wistfully at everyone else’s dreamy days out and wonder why yours go horrifically wrong!!
I didn’t expect our summer holiday to be busy at all this year! In fact, what with lockdown and everything being so uncertain, I assumed they wouldn’t be. But with restrictions easing, and me starting to feel a bit less anxious about getting out and about, it feels like we’ve actually been super busy!
How is it August already?! This week has been another busy one. It’s crazy that the second week of the summer holidays is over!
