Reasons to Smile - Family Fun and Camping

We are camping in Matlock, Derbyshire this week and enjoying the great outdoors as a family. A nice break from work to refresh ourselves and a break from technology to appreciate the simple things in life. I must admit I was never keen on the idea of sleeping in a tent until I met the Mr but we have had a few really relaxing holidays on some lovely camp sites so far.
We tend to go for small, basic ones so it's peaceful with plenty of space to play - ideal for the Mini Mes.


We have had some great day trips so far including Matlock Farm Park, Conkers, the Heights of Abraham and the caves and today we are at Chatsworth House. Tomorrow we are heading to Gullivers and testing out the new Spy Zone before travelling home.


The Mr and I also have a weekend away planned while the Mini Mes go to their dad's home. We are off to Brighton (I've never been!) for some couple time before he heads back to work.



What reasons do you have to be cheerful this week?

  1. I know what you mean about family time, it's nice without any interruptions from computers, phones and social networking etc. We recently went to a Haven Site and loved it! Yes we still had our phones but only to upload random pics, one a day to let our family know what we were upto, especially the immediate family etc

  4. I love Matlock! I've never been Brighton either. I've really missed not having a holiday this year but next time I'd like to go to Cornwall (not been there yet either)
