The trouble with a mini break is that it's just too MINI. Like we did loads of bike riding and tree trekking and swimming and eating and drinking and just general sitting about on arses. And the kiddos played a spot of badminton. And the other half taught them how to play pool. But we didn't really have time to do enough of it. What we really needed was a maxi break. Like two weeks. Or three. At least.
