    Tristy will be 9 months old by the time we go on holiday in june......just can't make up my mind what to do.....
    We only want a week away as my parents are taking us to a cottage in cornwall for a week in may.
    We have 600-700 pounds to spend on accomodation.
    I'm scared to take him abroad
    really wanted to go to centre parcs but the size of the place we can get as a couple is teeny tiny but they have lots to do

    where are you ladies going?

    We're taking LO to Menorca for a week in June when he'll be 7 months. My parents are taking us and we're staying in a villa though which has made it a lot less daunting!

    I think going abroad is fine though - Menorca is great I think as not too far away, not too hot and very safe and family-friendly. :)

    Oooh no kidding :coffee: When I flew from here direct to London it was over 9 hours.... :wacko: Very nice views though, fly right over the arctic circle and you can see the northern lights and all the arctic ice flows if you fly to Europe from Vancouver

    owwww we'd love to go.
    Hubby even picked up a holiday brochure and I've been flicking through looking at all the lovely lodge type hotels. Looks gorgeous!
    Hubby went to Nova scotia and New foundland briefly with RAF for a few nights and he loved it

    Urgh I do it almost every year, I am just thankful that you get little screens on the back of seats now!

    I'm flying to Vancouver this Summer, Ivy will be just over a year so that should be...interesting :rofl: Going with my mum though so she'll help me. Also going to France for a few days with my OH and to Shambala and maybe a few other festivals with a big group, some with other LOs. I'm sooo excited for this Summer!

    LOL! My OH loves them, I can't get into it :rofl: But I admit I haven't seen a full episode. It's quite popular here. Maybe if they called it Chavy Boys more UK people would watch

    Haha! We usually stay on Bowen Island for most of the trip because we have friends there and we have to stay with my grandma when we are in Vancouver and she is legit crazy. But I love Vancouver, we're thinking of moving over at some point but its sooo damn expensive!

    Also give Trailerpark Boys another chance, Bubbles is the funniest most endearing character ever!

    Oh yeah I wouldn't feel confident if my mum wasn't there to help me! Why don't you go somewhere in Cornwall? The beaches there are sooo beautiful.

    Bowen Island!! :) Lovely.

    Yes it's so expensive here which is why we are moving to Quebec. My little condo is for sale for $220,000 which is cheap (and we are still technically a 45 min drive from downtown).

    Aww well maybe I'll still be around when you get here!! lol
