Well, have bitten the bullet and have booked a short break...
In the UK!! Have found somewhere that is a bit like Blackpool, i.e. lots of things to do for families and kids, close to a beach, and where the price is reasonable!
We're going to Hemsby in Norfolk (my cousin is getting married nearby in April) and we're making the most of it and staying there for a few extra days!
Dan's first holiday - I can't wait!!
