The Easter Holidays are one of the most exciting times of year for children (after Christmas and the six-week summer holidays of course), but it is some important take some time out for ourselves too.
It has been three months since we've all returned to work and college after the Christmas break and back into our daily routines, and if you're like me and don't necessarily have any big holidays planned, it is easy to work through the weeks and forget to take some well-deserved time off.
Having a few days - whether a few of hours, a long weekend or a couple of weeks - to yourself is so important. With everything that goes on in life - work, education, families, friends, every day necessities, hobbies, money - it is easy to get bogged down and lose motivation for whatever it is you are passionate about.
For me, it is this blog; I absolutely love blogging and tweeting and I get so annoyed at myself when I get the dreaded 'bloggers block' - but, it happens. When you lose inspiration, it becomes so easy to get stuck in a rut. As much as you need to push yourself to get what you want, sometimes you just need to have a bit of time to do something that requires very little brain work (like play Candy Crush and listen to Glee songs on Youtube *ahem*).
So, to get my mojo back, myself and DC have made plans for our very unexpected, last minute week off from work - today we are heading to Cambridge for a couple of days before going to meet his family in Great Yarmouth for a long weekend (in a caravan!)
I am terribly excited! As much as I would love a week away in the sun (lying on a beach somewhere taking in the scenery with a cocktail), I am a big believer in Staycations; I have mentioned this before, I'm sure, but I have some great memories of days out and UK holidays with my family as a child, and I can not wait to see what Cambridge has to offer (I know it has an awful lot!) and to have some fun in good old GY.
I do have some posts in mind ready for my return, and I will catch up on all the blog posts I have missed too (so please feel free to leave links to your blogs!) And I would just like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to every one of you who reads my blog - it really does mean so much to me and I PROMISE I will be back all refreshed very soon.
