Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 234 – Holiday End

img_00411

“I’m a minimalist. I don’t really need much to enjoy a good holiday – just my family and the bare essentials.”

Jean Reno

Thanks for bringing the end of my holidays to my attention, Spidey!

Yes, this is the last Spidey Sunday of my summer vacation, and it really has flown by.

From setting up my classroom, to editing, to generally keeping my kids busy, it has disappeared with alarming speed, and here I am on the last weekend before I start back on Thursday…

But I’ve had a great, productive break.

Okay, so we didn’t jet off to any exotic locations. We didn’t even head off in the car to some different destination (except Birmingham for 2 nights!)

We were just at home.

And it was lovely, really.

Yes, sometimes I felt it would be wonderful to be getting ready to jet off somewhere hot, with a beach I could sprawl on, book in hand and cocktail by my side, but I know, that time will come soon enough too.

The children discovered their friends on the road and kept busy. I was able to lounge about pottering around the house, when not editing, and just relax.

Really, who needs to spend thousands on a break away? Sometimes being with the ones you love, at home is break enough.

So… tell me, what constitutes a good break in your eyes?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

    You made the most of your time off. Travelling can be stressful and expensive. Sounds like a great staycation to me.

    A “break” is for me a chance to get away from the daily responsibilities – yes, they will be there tomorrow, but just a chance to relax and refresh, whether it’s embarking on a daylong adventure or opening a new book…

    I am glad you had a nice break. You know traveling is nice but, as you said, as long as you are with people you love, it’s a good time. For me a lovely break is hanging with my family. I am blessed to live in a place that is fairly rural. I love going to one of the local county parks and walking the trails. Being surrounded by trees is magickal.

    I’m glad you enjoyed your break. I’m pretty much the same. A good break includes family and just enjoying the down time.

    I agree with you Sis, a break at plush hotel with sun, sea and pool, good food and cocktails and good books I’d great. Then again so is being home with family and furbies plus no stress packing or traveling 💜💜💜💜

    Sometimes just some time at home and being off together is just what you need! We won’t be going abroad for several years now Elsie is here.

    Good to read, that you had a great summer break, Ritu 🙂
    I think, it is healthy for all the family just to stay together in another way, than only in the daily stress.
