A Different Christmas

Christmas is all about tradition for us – even down to what we have for breakfast. So this year we decided to do everything completely different to take our minds off a difficult first christmas

So me, my husband & children headed off to Somerset with my Dad, sister, brother in law and my Gran to the most gorgeous lodge in Cheddar. We had the most beautiful blue skies on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The kids loved having everyone around and despite coughs and colds it was lovely to spend time with my closest family.

We stayed in these lodges in the summer and it’s such a gorgeous place. It’s only around 2 hours from us so not too far for the kids in the car.

Here’s a few of my favourite shots. Didn’t take the proper camera so it’s the wonderful world of the iphone!





Charlie had never been in a hot tub before and LOVED it! He went in every day and didn’t ever want to get out!




There was some serious competition going on with the Wii!!!

Now to decide what to do for New Years?!?

    It looks so lovely. I think getting away from Christmas was good for us too – a change of scene was what we all needed. Hope you all have a lovely new year. x

    Looks like you had a great time, and hopefully getting away for Christmas helped you all relax a bit from your loss.

    I love Cheddar, such a beautiful area, and you can’t beat having a hot tub to help you chill out
