Creating Your Own Holiday At Home

Holidays we all need them after all it is our reward for all out hard work in the real world ,the escape from reality is a welcome break from the mundane only issue money is tight . We need not jet off to the Caribbean ( please believe me ) there are activities you can do at  home to give your self that holiday life.We all need to have special treat whilst having out holiday at home which is how Carpetright think as well . One of my ideas is having a tea party , so what about hosting a Mad Hatter's Tea party ?

Mad Hatter's Tea Party 

The wonderful thing  about a Mad Hatter's tea party is that you can use it for any meal of the day what ever time you wish it to be. I had my Mad Hatter's breakfast mid afternoon  and utterly superb it was too.

Relax in the garden with a glass of wine wearing your holiday sandals of course.

Buy your favourite childhood ice cream ~ I love a Big Foot !!

Appease the weather Gods with an offering of homemade scenes with jam and clotted Cornish cream, debate with friends if the jam should go on first then the cream or the reverse.

Visit an underpass art gallery , no charge completely free.

Bake a carrot cake , cake makes everything right especially with a nice cup of strong tea.

Shadow disco dance , this is a very competitive sport and takes many years of practice !

Have a oven baked scotch in a field of course , it's the latest hipster trend and undoubtly has its own hashtag .... probably.

Take yourself back in time with a romantic sunset watch on your home holiday.

Can't get to Ascot to wear a hat , save your money wear a fetching hat and watch Ascot in the comfort of your own home !

Have cake in the woods ~ taking a teddy bear is optional , I did he was too shy to appear on camera however.

Create an unique piece of art in your dishwasher , look for fun every where !

Take an adventure ~ channel your inner adventurer.

Take holiday pictures at every opportunity!

Above all you can have fun at home #holidayathome
