Will you be taking a short break in 2014?

 For the last few months, we've been arguing talking about where to go on holiday next year. As for every parent with young children, holidays aren't always the relaxing stress free breaks that you see on the adverts. Last summer we made the brave move of going away for a fortnight, to France, just the four of us. The first week was fun, the second was trying. For us, the main problem was the fact that the boys aren't very good at going to sleep in places that are unfamiliar to them, so we end up going up and down stairs all night long trying to get them off to sleep.

Holiday picnic fun!

So this year, we are saving our money (for ourselves, obviously) and have decided to holiday in the UK. Yes, the weather can be unpredictable, but that's why it's worth considering a break at a "fun" style holiday park where everything is laid on and you don't have to THINK. As I've learned, there's almost no point in trying to get the children to sleep at a reasonable time, as they don't seem to want to co-operate. So you may as well go out in the evenings and just "go with it".

I remember as a child, being extremely jealous of anyone who was going on a Butlin's holiday, as it sounded like amazing fun. I know for a fact that my children would have a great time and enjoy the swimming pool, the clubs, activities and general atmosphere. I'm starting to think that stress free UK holidays are the way forwards - what's the point in working hard all year for two weeks of stress stuck in the car the whole time.

If that sounds like your idea of a good way to spend your holiday time as a family, the Butlins 2014 UK holiday breaks are available now.
