Wish I was There Photo Comp – Giddy Up!

Now it may not be the place sunshine was born, or be the top of everyone’s list, but to us, it’s a place where we have made memories a plenty. I am of corse, talking about Brean.

We have had fun come rain or shine and made the most of each day we had together, to be a family and enjoy the here and now.

As Beboo is only young, it has been important to me to stay close to home. Should we have any problems or illness, we are close enough to head home and make things all better. Yet still being far enough away for a holiday.

One thing we all shared on our most recent holiday was Pops’ first fair ground ride. I am a total wimp, so kind of expected her to follow suit. But she was so confident and completely put me to shame. I couldn’t have been more proud…


Yes it was cold and rather damp, but she didn’t care. She went on every ride and this particular one more than once. I was so proud watching her go round and i have to say, it was very amusing watching her bouncing along!

Our holidays are far from exotic, but we always make the most of what we have. Often spending less means we can spend more time doing things we wouldn’t normally be able to afford. Like endless goes on the fair and the Husband spending far too much time at the amusements.

But such is, well, holidays?! 

This is my entry into the Wish I was There Photo Competition.

Holidays And The Here And Now

So we are home. I made it through another holiday with two under five, it was manic but we all had a lovely time. One of the biggest reasons I went away was to escape, to be away from my life just for a little while. I was able to dose up on painkillers and forget my MS just for a while.

Yes I used a wheelchair and my stick and yes I am absolutely shattered now, but both me and the girls had a great time. It was all about them and having fun.

Of course inside I cannot really forget, but I think the fact there was nothing there to remind me and for that short amount of time I could block it out. I am aware I will pay the price, however the memories we made were so worth it.

Also the fact, back home our house was being pulled apart was another big reason we went. It was nice to come home to no mould. I cannot tell you how fresh this house feels with all the new vents and fans.

One of the nicest things we discovered was that Pop’s loves rides. Who knew?!

She went on every ride that accepted her wristband more than once. This girl really got her monies worth.

She had a great time, she spends so much time being there for me, it was nice to  be able to give her something back.

So, now I have to say I am bit lost as to what next, but the break really has let me put myself back together after having a really tough few months. I feel ready to face the world.
