Maybe you've noticed that I've talking about them a lot lately? I want one so bad!

Tom and I both knew that in me not going back to my old job after maternity leave that our budget would be tight. Even now with my part time freelancing a holiday abroad is out of the question. We have been lucky enough to take a few UK trips over the past couple of years and I do love all the UK has to offer but sometimes I do daydream about a proper trip away.

Our last trip abroad was before I was even pregnant with Wilf, it was valentines weekend in 2011 and Tom and I went to Barcelona for a long weekend. I had booked it almost a year beforehand after having to change a previous flight for a holiday with girlfriends that was cancelled. When it came to booking the hotel my brother and SIL mentioned that we should say we were on our honeymoon in case we could get a better room or a bottle of wine, so I wrote it in the notes upon booking and promptly forgot about it.

Fast forward ten months later, Tom and I had left the airport, sat on a hot bus, got a little lost on the way to the hotel and by now were so mad at each other were not talking. It was a surprise to us then when the receptionist congratulated up on our wedding! We were not wearing rings and we were in terrible moods so I was sure they would be having a good laugh at us and our silly lie. If anything it brought us out of our stupid argument if only for me to say over and over 'I'm so embarrassed!!' 'They must think I'm such a bad person!'

We went out that night for falafel at Moaz (if you go to Barcelona you have to go there, we went twice in one weekend!). When we got back in we found champagne, chocolate and a fruit basket in our room!

Here are some camera phone shots of our time away (before I invested in a proper camera!)

I feel quite nostalgic now! Now if we could only win a holiday that would be just perfect thanks!
