What we accomplished…..

My hubby is a wonderful holiday planner.  Really he has lists and poly pockets for everything.

It’s great.

As in I don’t have to plan what we do –  I pretty much plan what we take and what we eat and he plans the how we get there and what we do.

To be fair I have a holiday file!

There is much family discussion, some surprises kept from the kids but pretty much JP has it planned.

It works for us.

I’d say we accomplish more that way, while still having time to relax.

Day 1 – We left at 5.15am for Dublin.  Ferry to Liverpool.  Drove to Gloucester to a Travel Lodge.
