I’m feeling really tired today, partly because of yesterday’s run and partly due to the fact that I was awake until 1.30am dealing with the insanity that was yesterday’s blogging endeavours. I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for the hundreds of messages, comments and emails that I received from you guys – it means a lot and once again demonstrates just how amazing the WordPress community is. I feel very lucky to be a small part of it.

School is almost over for the summer and now the students have done their assessments I was able to sit back and actually enjoy just being in the classroom. It’s a brilliant atmosphere at the minute – some of my students are in disgustingly good moods as they are excited about the holidays ahead and are desperate to share their holiday destinations with everyone.

I’m not going on holiday this year – the cat and the vets bills have seen to that – but I am determined to get away for just a day or two. Here’s where I need your help – do you have any ideas for fun activities/days out/days in that won’t leave me bankrupt?

  1. I am looking for ideas myself. I saw part of what went down, I am sorry you had to deal with all of that. Hopefully you can get some rest tonight.

  2. Cute tuckered out puppy! I feel bad that I didn’t know about the run, but congratulations for your accomplishment, Suzie! I only follow your blog, so a few things don’t always sink in! I always admire goals and reaching them, too. Hope you are well, tired is a good way to know you made it! (I have a friend who says the obvious: “Beats the alternative!”) Smiles, Robin

  3. I hear tell – since I get Country Living UK – that there are great one day trips close to you – you need some fresh air, maybe a little water – whiskey optional ………….

  4. Inexpensive getaways involve going to a park or the beach. From that point it’s easy: book, bubbles, a kite, a friend, refresment. Cha cha cha–easy peasy holiday.

  5. I don’t live in Great Britain and though I visited once decades ago – and LOVED it! – I know nothing about the cost of vacationing on your end of the pond. But I’d suggest visiting wherever the train might take you. That has to be a rather inexpensive option (compared to planes or cruises) and might get you to see some sights that are unfamiliar to you. Anything near the ocean is always good for me – how about you? We stayed at the university in Bangor, Wales. I loved the town, the people, and the university itself. Lots of history, much charm. Have no idea the cost of a 2-3 day visit, but maybe that will do? Or go into London, do a theater and restaurant day?

  6. I hope you get some rest, lovely!

    When I need some time away, I usually try to focus on doing something that I don’t usually get to do. Hubby and I are planning a weekend away and I think we’re going to go to an amusement park and ride roller coasters like a couple kids. Why not?? 😉

    I hope you think of something great to do! And be sure to let us know what it is!

  7. Combine blog and vacay. Do picnics and the like, and maybe bicycle rides and take photos in extraordinary ways. Look at where you live in a whole new fresh way.

  8. I noticed that you added a disclaimer at the end….GOOD THINKING!!
    I hope you get to have some quiet time and just recharge, you deserve it!!

  9. I won’t be going on holiday either. Day trips for us. Hope you sleep better tonight.
