~ Family,Forests,Festivities ~

Back to reality and the real world!!
 Ive been lucky enough to have a little pre xmas holiday with the hubby and kids.Weve done this for a few years now,we like to take ourselves off somewhere remote and quiet ,somewhere were we are away from all the hustle and bustle,usually the highlands of Scotland
 This year I didn't fancy the long drive,so we chose somewhere a bit closer to home.
We chose a place called Keldy Forest,near Pickering North Yorkshire,I must admit It's a great place for just relaxing or long forest walks ,cycling,horse riding  or just sitting back and watching the abundant wildlife,and when we were done with that we had a fab hot tub back at the cabin  were we where staying .
On the wish list of the kids ,when we got back from holiday is their very own Hot Tub,mmm I'm not convinced,I could just see myself strutting across the garden every 2 mins frightening the neighbours to death,now If I had the figure of Elle (the body) Mcpherson It would be totally different.
It was really lovely to spend time,without computers,mobile phones (no signal ) games consoles and to swap these with good old fashioned scrabble ,chess, cards
Now that I'm back home, I am super chilled and feel like I'm ready for the next couple of week's of chaos and festivities
Let the madness begin!!
Take care everyone

Night time fun in the hot tub
