Yesterday while putting things away in the kitchen after eating dinner, I picked up my dog (she’s very little) and then absent mindedly opened the fridge and went to put her in. I repeat, I nearly put my dog in the fridge.
Not only did I nearly refrigerate Maisie the westie, the best part of my day yesterday was sitting in an empty house, in total silence, eating a broccoli stir-fry. This doesn’t make my life sound that great, I’m aware, but I think it tells me what I’ve been suspecting- I need a break.
I have one in two weeks. Just 10 working days left until I can put on my out of office for more than a long weekend since SEPTEMBER LAST YEAR. I don’t know who I am, given that I usually go away every other month. But this has made me even more keen to sit and scroll Instagram and google search my ever-growing bucket list. These are the places I want to go for future ‘I need a mother flipping holiday’ times.
Canada Yes bloody please. Mountains and camping and lakes and all-round epic scenery.
York Closer to home, I’ve been meaning to go to this city for the longest time after hearing only wonderful things from friends who studied there or have taken weekend breaks.
Nice A friend of mine moved here recently and her photos are giving me hell. I’ve only ever been Paris and Calais so I need to explore more of France, starting with the Riviera.
Costa Rica One for next year’s travel list for certain. Again, I only really got the idea from a friend going here and plastering stuff all over Instagram. Oh and Jurassic World.
Germany I’ve discussed a German road trip with my friends several times over the past couple of years. It looks amazing. I want to go to Berlin and have a ridiculous night out, but also drive through the country and stop off at tiny towns and eat all the carbs and soak up the history.
