You know you’re on holiday when…

Having just returned from a week in Spain and a complete social media break (which has been bliss) I thought I’d better jump back in the blogging saddle!  There are certain ‘signs’ you know you’re on holiday. These include:

It’s the ONLY acceptable time for the alarm to go off at 4am on the day of departure

One of the best holiday sounds is that of the suitcase wheels trundling along 

You buy more magazines for the week then you do in a year

selection of magazines by a pool

It’s acceptable to have more than one ice-cream per day

You consider having an alcoholic beverage at 11am because it’s SO hot

You get to use up all those samples of products that have been hiding at the bottom of your beauty stash

There are more inflatables than people in the pool

You can actually sit and devour a book in a whole day

Did you even go on holiday if you didn’t take the standard plane wing vs cloud photo?!

Is there anything I’ve missed from this list?!
