    Do some camping in the UK, but always go abroad for our main holiday - too wet in the UK. Funny seeing as we have a hosepipe ban at the moment - although if this rain continues, what's the bets they'll be flooding!
    Going to Florida in August. 1st time to Disney for me as well as the kids. Can't wait.
    Costing a bloody fortune though, but refuse to take the kids out of school.

    Using the Tesco vouchers for the channel tunnel fare for the camper van again. When we get off don't know where we'll go. France? Germany? Spain? Switzerland? maybe even drive up through Denmark to Sweden. Only limitations are the tunnel crossing dates.

    OH and I are going to the Olympics this year :D I have tickets for 2 events and OH has tickets for 3. The hotel and flight costs are astronomical :( so even though we're only going to be there for 3 nights it's more expensive than our main holiday the following week which is 9 nights in continental Europe, including flights and tickets for a week long music festival!!

    My sister is getting married in the Summer, so we are going to Turkey for 10 days as a 'girls trip away' before the wedding.

    However, we are lucky in that her fiance owns a flat that so we are only paying for flights and food etc.
    All posts are my personal opinion, not formal advice Always get proper, professional advice (particularly about anything legal!)

    Im off to Greece in august for a friends wedding – it’s the first proper holiday (beach, sunshine, relaxing) that Ive had in 9 years so Im extremely looking forward to it!
    One of the best things is that I’ve booked into a different hotel to everyone else (theres about 40 going) so I can have lots of ‘me’ time!!

    Looks like a week in our own cottage for us later in the year when we have very few bookings

    It is nice to see the value of your house going up'' Why ?
    Unless you are planning to sell up and not live anywhere, I can;t see the advantage.
    If you are planning to upsize the new house will cost more.
    If you are planning to downsize your new house will cost more than it should
    If you are trying to buy your first house its almost impossible.
