Enjoy the simple things whilst on holiday? Yes please! (the world is to be explored!)
I've just spent a week in Majorca thoroughly absorbing the simple stuff with the two littlies and it got me thinking about when I was little. (Not that long ago thank you!) Pre-mobile phones, pre-tablets (don't say anything!) just us kids using our imagination and enjoying life.
I used to spend hours outside making daisy chains for anyone who was willing (forced) to wear them! I'd play cops and robbers with my brothers, which more than often involved me being handcuffed to a fence, probably so they could get some peace! (I may have been a bossy chatterbox) It was only in adulthood that my brothers told me those plastic handcuffs had been escapable by some sort of catch, how had I missed that?! Anyway, 'knocking on' for friends meant a whole day of rounders, cricket, hide & seek and anything else we could fit in before being called in for tea!
Spending last week with two liitle ones meant that I had every reason to paddle with fish, jump waves and search for crabs. Good times. Let's be honest who doesn't want to build sand castles, decorate them with treasured sea shells and fill the moat with sea water?! Come on, I know you're with me!
Every evening, we chatted about our day over dinner, the kidders met new friends and played with eachother in the pool (Jeez that water was cold! Especially when being the water gun target!) and we wandered by the sea swinging our chained hands just because we wanted to.
So right there, last week, is why it's important to simply cherish those things. Those simple, and sometimes ignored things that are in fact special moments, memories being made.
