our first summer holiday

I know, I know.  Its been so long guys and I can only apologise for my sporadic blogposts these days, but lets be realistic here, this is more than likely how its gonna be from now on. I have accepted that I don't have as much time on my hands as I did previously and I hope you can accept this too.

You may or may not remember I mentioned something about booking a holiday a while ago.  Well that happened, and we spent 7 days in Alcudia, Majorca.  Holidays are SO different when you have a child. I enjoyed it in ways that I never imagined and I swear Fletcher grew up right in front of my eyes whilst we were there.  It was like he swallowed a dictionary and suddenly all these new words were falling out of his mouth.

The weather was hot but cloudy on most days but this was perfect weather for a fair skinned toddler (and mother).   Our days were mostly spent at the beach building sandcastles so that Fletcher could smash them down, pushing Fletcher down the slide from all angles {upside down, headfirst was a firm favourite) and dancing at the mini disco every night.   I relished in Fletcher's delight every day, just watching him carefree, fearless, loving life and being so confident made me feel so honored to be a mum, HIS mum!  And the enjoyment I got from seeing him so happy made up for the lack of tan I got.

We also decided to go without any internet connection for the whole time we were there and this was actually quite liberating.  I replaced checking my e-mails or social network sites with having actual conversations with my husband and reading a book, it felt fantastic to be connected to real life rather than connected to the internet!

Now I want to book another holiday for next year.  Any recommendations very much welcomed.

Keep Smiling
