Summer Staycation

Just a little note to say I'm off on my holidays!

As much as I wish I'd packed a suitcase full of shorts and cute Summer dresses to head off to a hot Greek Island, the case that's currently sitting on my bedroom floor is full of jeans, jumpers, waterproofs and a very hopeful bottle of factor 30.  Yep, this year we're on "Staycation".  In a bid to save ourselves money to put in our "buying a house" fund we're heading to Norfolk to stay with my parents for a week of catching up with friends and family and dragging Simon off to all the places I used to love visiting as a kid.

Whilst I'm away I shall not be blogging, but I leave you in the capable hands of three of my favourite bloggers who will be guest posting for me.  Lindsay will be taking you on a trip to see some animals, Michelle will be chatting about what it's like to leave London behind and set up a new life in the countryside and Kel will be talking about cake (because obviously it wouldn't be right for New Girl to go a week with no cake posts).

I hope you enjoy the posts, and please support the girls by heading over to their blogs for a gander, they all write really fun lifestyle blogs.

Make sure you all keep your fingers crossed that I get "bootiful" weather in Norfolk and I shall see you all in a week!



  1. A staycation is a great idea. Have a fantastic time, I will keep my fingers crossed for good weather for you.

  2. Wishing you and Simon a wonderful holiday and that you have glorious weather. Those jeans and waterproofs won't see the light of day Lucy x

  3. Have a fab old time! Fingers crossed you have reason to whack out that factor 30 - I look forward to hearing all about your adventures upon your return!
