I just got back from a fabulous holiday with Hubby. The destination wasn’t my first choice, nor was it his. For reasons out of our control, it wasn’t our second choice either. It just happened to be very cheap and cheerful.
But the holiday was still brilliant. I guess it could have been miserable. The weather was against us from the start. I could have sat be-moaning the fact that I really wanted to be in the Lake District (my fave holiday destination). But I believe that to a great extent you can make your own luck and as such you have two choices - accept and enjoy where you are and what life deals you or be miserable. I chose to see it as an opportunity to do and see something new.
The result was a holiday where our time (hubby and mine) was totally our own. No agendas running in the background, no need to be anywhere at any given time (other than the restaurant booking on Friday – fab Mexican). We could be completely spontaneous.
We did get some bad work news whilst we were away, but not even this spoilt the holiday.
