Great school reports and sneaky holiday

Jo has been working flat out recently, on the Lancashire Science Festival and then away in London as she had helped pull together a team that were exhibiting at the Royal Society. As she’d not seen the kids awake for about 10 days (except when we were at the science festival!) we planned to have a family weekend away, spend some quality time together. It had to be somewhere close by, with lots to do, so we used the Caravan Club members offer- 3 nights at Haven Lakeside for just £50.

Friday was also school report day. I’m up to speed with the kids education, and felt confident that the reports would be good (and they were). So we decided to turn up at school pick-up with the caravan hitched on and -surprise- sneaky family holiday to celebrate good reports.

The kids were hugely excited. Is that caravan Henrietta? Are we going on holiddddddaaay??

Wonderful weekend of bike riding, swimming, bbqs, lazing around and enjoying each others company. The only let down was the amount of SClub 7 played in the ‘live lounge’, like being at an awful wedding 🙂
