However, after four days of driving rain, temperatures reaching almost 15 degrees and endless rounds of monopoly/scrabble/eye-spy (delete as appropriate), we just need some sun!

When all is said and done, we want to pull up those blinds and reveal another day of sun and crystal blue seas.  We love British holidays, but the Med can actually be beautiful and the kids can swim and potter in the shallows for hours without needing resuscitation.  Ice creams actually melt and hot chocolate is unknown.

Yes, noses and ears will burn on the first evening and it may be difficult to convince the kids that squid is just like chicken, but at the end of the day, a few days of warm sun on your skin will keep you rejuvenated until next spring!
