Do you make a school holiday bucket list? I love the feeling I get when I tick something off my 30 before 30 bucket list and I can’t wait to make a start on our summer holiday bucket list – it’s going to be a summer to remember!
I don’t drive, and buses are pretty pricey. As you can imagine, it’s quite difficult to plan big days out when transport is difficult and funds are low. Here in Norfolk we have a great range of facilities, I recently published ‘Family Days Out In Norfolk’ which is full of great ideas for days out and affordable fun but not all are easily accessible for us, therefore we have compiled a summer holiday bucket list and we intend to tick off as many as we can before school begins again in September.
The six-week break from school is always welcomed in this house. I love not having to rush anywhere, get up or early or pack lunch boxes. The children are much the same, they love just relaxing in their pyjamas with no immediate need to be anywhere. Time to unwind is vital, but so is making memories and cherishing every moment with my children.
