Summer Holiday Bucket List

Summer is nearly here (it starts officially next Tuesday at 1pm) and is something I’ve been so excited for this year! The Summer Holidays are within touching distance and man are we ready for it.

I remember last year wanting to make the most of every single minute as it felt like such a big change over with LB moving from preschool to school in September. Now he’s finished in Reception and is heading into Yr 1. He’s used to constant entertainment with having friends around him 5 days a week so I’ve been trying to get sorted with a lot of ideas to keep us busy!

Now I’m not sure how we’re going to afford the food Bill over the summer as I don’t know about you but my two do not stop eating-I mean ever!!!!! And I’ve got LB at home, not eating his hot dinner and snacks at school. Is rationing frowned upon nowadays?

We have some things already set into our diary including LB spending a week at an activity camp while I’m doing part of my dance Summer School, he will then be joining me for the second week, also his swimming lessons continue through the holidays. We have a friend’s wedding to go to and some family birthdays to celebrate.

Some of my ideas are days out and moments to share with family and friends, others are simple and perfect little moments to enjoy just us! After months of working weekends I am really looking forward to spending some quality time with my boys (that includes the hubby too) I’ve really missed them!

So here are 43 things that will inspire our days (I do not guarantee we will do them all) as we have 43 days of wonderful and ordinary together………..
