If kids school and my plans were cancelled for a week and I have that amount of money to spend, ideally I would take the kids and myself on a dream holiday to somewhere like Disneyland or similar; we have a slight issue none off us have a passport but this ideal is it not. I would love the kids to see the magic of another country, but go to a theme park so I can see them smile again. As the last few years have been tough on us all. I just want to treat them all before they all grown-up and leave home.
I have suggested a theme park like Disney as ticks all the boxes for my family, ride and thrills for D, cute and fluffy with loads of animals for B and it speaks big time to my little side and any way who doesn’t love Disney and their movies. As I don’t drive so I would have book us into one of the resort themed hotels, allowing the kids and I to be in the park all day, every day.
Everything I searched included car hire; gggrrrr, which I don’t need at all. I think this hotel would suit my family needs and desires.
The logical and practical side of my brain said that I should use that cash to sort the house out, get it decorated, furnished, etc. Make sure they have all new clothes, but that is no fun what so ever. If I have ever had spare cash I have always spent on treat the kids allowing them to have some fun.
Okay, back to reality time to think about what I am making for dinner I suppose.
