This year, for the first time we have not booked a holiday away. We realised that as the boys grow up they want to spend more time on their own, going for cycle rides or just lying around reading. So after trying for some time to decide where best to rent a cottage that would suit everybody we decided to stay put and holiday from home. My husband has some time off work and we have a few trips planned, with time in between for relaxing at home and some decorating as well.
We have done a couple of walks nearby, on the North Hampshire Downs -"Watership Down" country. Although its only a few miles away from home because the soil is so chalky there is a completely different range of wild flowers.
Today we are enjoying time at home and planning a couple of slightly more adventurous trips for next week.
