Word of the Week – Escape

This weekend we are making our escape and we are off visiting relatives in Dorset.
Our home has felt much like a prison since the break up from school. With Star’s problems and my health every attempt at escaping has been thwarted.

Earlier this week we planned on visiting a National Trust property not too far away. We wanted to go on Monday but I had been really poorly all weekend and needed an extra day to recover.

Then on Tuesday it was Star’s turn to be unwell. I was so disappointed. I guess we could have re-arranged for later in the week but I knew Star wouldn’t be well enough and I wanted us all to be fit and well for this weekend.

Now, I guess all we have to do is hope that the rain gives us a break so we can get down to the beach.

    Sorry to hear you and Star have been poorly this week. We have been pretty much the same here and the the fact it's the summer holidays makes the cabin fever worse. I hope you have a lovely restful holiday in Dorset ad start to feel better soon x #WotW

    Hi Anne, I'm sorry to hear that you and Star haven't been in the best of health this week. Fingers crossed that the weather is kind and lets up so you can get down the beach.

    Stay healthy and have a really fab time in Dorset!
