I need so much done around the house! Like new carpet upstairs, need bookcases for downstairs and her bedroom, would like new blinds etc.

But that all just seems so boring!! We've been saving in a big tin since Christmas for a holiday and I've just seen a really cheap one in a window for the end of May to Majorca!

She's nearly 3 by the way but great craic!

Go on holiday. The house can wait.

I would get far more enjoyment out of a holiday than I would out of new blinds and carpeting. If you're the same, book the holiday. If it was a boiler you needed, or your cooker had packed up, then fair enough that needs buying. But you can buy a cheap rug to throw over the old carpet and stack the books on the floor for now. Go to the beach.

Yes go on holiday. It will get so much more expensive once she's at school.

We made the choice between a new kitchen or a holiday. We picked the holiday

Go. When she’s older will she remember a holiday or how nice the carpets were? Have fun!!

Sorry, house stuff for me otherwise it never gets done and I end up getting more and more annoyed at what the house looks like.

My kitchen has been waiting 15 years, DD2 has her heart set on a trip to California, it's going to wait a few more years.

DD1 goes to uni in 2years, carpets can wait, time together can't.

What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
(slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well, some of that we did but most we didn't
And why I just don't know

Do it!

Oh Jesus, Sarah!!! There's no arguing with that. grin
getting all tearful now, actually

Do it! You have floor covering of some sort I assume? Go on holiday. It's why I go to work smile

Our bathroom is clean but very dated, I hated it when we moved in 12 years ago and I still hate it but we have put up with it because when ds looks back he won't think 'wow, mum and dad had a fabulous bathroom' but he does think 'wow, we've had some fab holidays'!!!

And that's what matters.

Anyway he's going to university this year (sob!) so we will be having the bathroom finally done then.....maybe grin
