As an organised type of person, who likes to get time away from work with Dave and the kids planned in advance, I’m already looking at holidays for 2010. It can be a complicated process to make sure that the time we take coincides with the kids school holidays as well as Dave’s conference schedules. Often its tricky to get things sorted, but its easier when we just aim to get away for long weekends rather than a full week away. We find anyway that when we take a week off work there is so much to catch up on it is hard once you get back.
We only do 1 week off work a year which is when we go in May to our gorgoeus 3 bedroom apartment in the Marriot resort in Marbella, which we always look forward to the break. This year we have done quite a few long weekends away with the kids and that fits in quite well around work.
We have been to Centreparcs for the last few years in the kids summer holiday, and I’m trying to working out when is a good time to rebook for 2010… but I also want to take the kids to Paris next year, so am looking at dates in the Easter holiday.
I’ve just had a nice surprise though that Easter Sunday this year falls on the 4th April, so its early this year and the kids break up on Thursday 1st April. But the 4th April is a special date for Dave and I as it is our wedding anniversary, it will be 12 years, and also the date that we signed the contracts when we bought Bronco, which will be 7 years ago on the 4th April. So whatever we do over the Easter holidays I’ll have to make sure that its something special now!
Top tip: Do you know how Easter is worked out each year?
Its the First Sunday, after the First full moon, after the 21st March!
