We did various activities such as visiting a model village, the sea side, the pier amusements; some of us visited a castle, and Alex and Tim went fishing for a day. We also enjoyed the amenities of the house and just being together as a family hanging out, doing jigsaws, eating meals, watching some olympics, playing tennis and going in the pool and having a photo competition at the end of each day. For me, it was perfect! There's nothing more I could have needed or wanted from my family holiday.

Eating yummy meals
As we were on the second floor of the house, I woke up each morning, did all my meds, nebs, physio, got dressed, ate breakfast etc upstairs before coming down as there was no way I was getting back up the stairs again until bedtime. I managed to get down each day before midday, which was good. Then I could enjoy the day with my family and forget all about CF :D
We had a yoga instructor come to the house on the Monday to teach us some yoga in the garden. It was great for my physio and felt brilliant opening up my body and stretching out my back and chest. I am definitely looking into continuing with it and the teacher gave me some advice on what sort of classes I could attend to help with my health.
My aunty Lisa wanted to recreate some old photos of us cousins, they came out quite well!
We have had the order of this one mixed up over the years! Think we can finally remember it now :D
The week flew by and I was gutted when it came to an end! Back to reality now, hospital appointment on Tuesday, but I am feeling quietly confident that I won't need to stay in this time. In my head though, I can escape all of that and keep all the happy, happy memories of my wonderful family holiday at the surface <3 <3 <3
Until next time! xo
