#Blogtober16 Day 6 Favourite Birthday/Christmas Present Ever
Welcome to #Blogtober16 Day 6, and today we are talking presents!
I must have had a mad moment when I picked this one, as it has been really difficult to actually come up with an answer, I thought about all of the presents I got when I was little and although very nice, I didn’t ever have one particular one that stood out, I do remember Christmas being busy and LOTS of gifts under the tree, so I guess that is why our children have SO many!
Probably my favourite present is my 21st birthday present from my mum and dad, Asa and I had been together 6 months and they were obviously thinking he was going to be around a while, because they booked an all inclusive holiday to Spain for us both.
It wasn’t the most glamorous holiday, and not particularly expensive, but it is the only holiday that Asa and I have been on, just the two of us, because four months later I was pregnant with Xene and every holiday from 1998 onward has been with the children.
We had meals out at little Spanish restaurants and explored the older part of Spain, we went on a horse riding trip, when Asa pretended he was an experienced rider so that he didn’t get stuck riding around in a circle, instead we went off into the mountains.
We took romantic strolls along the beach and it was my actual birthday whilst we were in Spain so he presented me with an ice cream cake, which was great apart from we were in a hotel with no kitchen or freezer, so we ate LOTS of ice cream cake (we couldn’t let it go to waste!)
So, there we go, my favourite present, what about you ?
