Well, I’m back from our holiday in Spain – me, my parents and the kids. (started writing this last week and only just finishing it now).
We got back on Sunday night and the kids were put straight to bed, at Ben’s and I headed home via the Co-Op to buy a pizza.
Monday was straight back to work and back to reality, which has left me feeling a little down. I feel a bit bad that I haven’t written up a day by day account of our holiday but its already the 2nd week I’m back and I honestly don’t have the energy. So a picture account will have to do.
However, before I go on, I just want to say a big thank you to my parents for having us. We had a brilliant time. The kids loved it, I loved it and thank you for letting me lie in a little every morning!
I’d also like to thank my Aunty Pat and Uncle Ray for the fab birthday party the threw Joshua on the Sunday. I will be sorting thank you cards to everyone for the presents. Just need to buy some and get Josh to write them out. It was lovely to see all my cousins and their kids. I have so many happy memories of visiting Gib or spending time with them in Spain. It was good to add more happy memories to the bank!
So here are the highlights of my holiday – not in any particular order as my phone WordPress app seems to have loaded the pictures in reverse order or some random order – I don’t know why.
Here are some pictures:
