Summer 2019: Day 1: On route to Hull.
This summer I’ve posted what we’ve been up to each day of the school holidays – you can see a summary of our adventures at our 2019: 42 Days of Summer page.
As we set off at 11.30am I felt there could never be anyone as excited as me to be setting off on holiday . The last few weeks have been a whirlwind – having survived not getting my job and then getting it, I’ve given a presentation to approx 150 people at a conference for work, and attended an award ceremony where I’d been selected as one of 36 from approx 20,000 people in our group of companies. I didn’t win but it was an unforgettable experience.
On top of this I’ve been preparing a handover for the six weeks summer holiday, and getting our house ready for painting work whilst we’re away (a.k.a. shoving clutter into the rooms not being painted, dusting skirting boards, and trying to remove blue tac with blue tac leaving a sore friction burn on my thumb). Thanks to my family and friends for your support throughout – it’s been much appreciated .
Today has very much been a day of eating, driving and tablets (after a term of confiscation). First stop the OK Diner on the A19 which is great value as kids eat free (I love the burritos). The boys had a good dance and dab whilst waiting on their food, and Boy 3 enjoyed dipping his pancakes in diet cola.
In the car temperatures reached 29 degrees, so it was good to arrive and cool down in our room. I enjoyed researching options for the next few days whilst the boys played Roblox. Boy 3 found £1 under his bed so was very happy. For tea we ate at our hotel, and had a brilliant window view overlooking the River Humber. A great first day, and we’re looking forward to seeing Granny tomorrow
