Thinking of Summer
The February gloom is leading us to turn our thoughts to family holidays. Obviously, as our car has been written off, the priority will be to replace that as soon as we can so a holiday may be out of the question again this year. We didn't manage a holiday last year because we had to save my partner's annual leave so he could take time off when Little Miss arrived., He changed jobs and we didn't realise he wouldn't qualify for paid Paternity Leave until it was too late. The longest holiday we've ever been on is five nights so a full week would be a real luxury.
I'm not sure whether or not we will be able to book in advance so, if we do decide to go abroad it would probably be by booking a late deal. We would need to get organised though as only Red Rose Daddy has a valid passport at the moment. My perfect holiday is a city break, I love exploring a new city, visiting museums and galleries and eating in great restaurants however, that sort of holiday really isn't practical with a baby and toddler in tow so we need to start looking at a week or two in the sunshine.
Both of our families have a history of visiting the Balearics and I think Majorca or Menorca may be a good option for us. One advantage of having two children under three is the ability to look at holidays that fall in term time. I've been looking on latedeals.co.uk and have found a week's self catering in Majorca, departing on 22nd March from just £289 per person. If we're flexible with dates and get organised some sunshine may not be beyond us this year!
