Road Trip!

"We're all going on a .... not so summer holiday!"

Tomorrow we leave for a our big road trip across the British Isles!


The black line indicates our journey to Oxford, (via an overnight stop in Llandudno) for a family wedding, and then eventually down to Bournemouth for our mainstay holiday. 

Now you may notice a significant stop en route from Oxford to Bournemouth in the Northants area!! 

I am super excited to be calling in with a v.special bloggy friend on Sunday!  And several other bloggy friends are coming too!  Squeeee!

If you haven't already guessed who it is, then you will have to watch this blog to find out more and to view the photographic evidence of our post FQR mini reunion! 

After a few days with family and friends in Bournemouth, we begin our return journey home (red line) via Beford, where we will visit more good friends.

A final stopover in Telford will set us on the last leg of the road trip back to Ireland on 21/7.

It is 14 years since we last drove this journey as a family (with only 1 small child!).  Let us hope that we will return with the same 3 children intact that we started with!!

I won't be taking my laptop away with me on holdiay, which means no blogging or reading blogs for 10 days!!

I will miss you all, and I wish you happy holidays, whatever your plans!

  1. Ooh, have fun with Susan, and if my parents still lived where I spent 10 years of my growing up years, I could have met you in Telford! I'm a tad bit disturbed about your over-water route from Anglesey towards Liverpool though... ;o)

  11. Enjoy the break and take alcohol for the kids - if it doesn't make them sleepy and compliant on the car journey, drink it yourself (while Mr Jude does the driving of course)!

    Seriously, have a fantastic break and enjoy catching up with all your friends and rellys and have a blast at Susan's!! (Just a tiny bit green.)
