I had planned to have a few days offline to just rest and read but it didn't go quite to plan! On Saturday night my dad told me he had booked a surprise holiday for us and we left for a four day break down to Blackpool in England on Sunday! I just got in an hour ago and we had a great time! I LOVE Blackpool but we didn't go last year because we had just lost my mum to cancer last June and didn't want to be there without her. However this year my dad decided that it would be good for us to go and I'm so glad we did! We've been going there on and off as a family since I was three years old!
The weather was superb! In September in Blackpool you can get the four seasons in one day but we had sun the whole time-no rain, no freezing winds! Pretty happy with that! We strolled along the south shore a few times a day watching everyone scream on the rollercoasters, eating hotdogs and drinking slush puppies! We also did some shopping at the beach markets and of course I managed a nice visit to Waterstones to buy a few holiday books...well, it would be rude not to! I was so knackered each night that I had no energy to read but it was great to just have a rest away from here and have a bit of fun. I haven't had time to upload some holiday photos but I'll put a few on my next STS on Saturday.
So now it's back home and I need to find some energy to do the holiday washing and ironing (GROAN!!!) get some shopping in and get some reading done.
I think I need a holiday!
