We've just returned from something we've never done before - two holidays in one. I can highly recommend it - switching holiday cottages in the middle of a fortnight was a bit of a faff but we do feel like we've been away for a long time.
Our first week was in a secluded little house, high up on a hill overlooking Bala Lake. We spent a lot of time looking at this view (mostly from inside the cottage, the weather wasn't always this good), and pottered about north Wales on several excursions.
Holmfirth has a profusion of little cafes, and it made me wish I'd actually watched some of Last of the Summer Wine before we went.
Not quite the same as a holiday, but there's to be no DIY or house-related-cleaning-up until Monday at the earliest.
