I love championing the benefits of holidaying in the UK. The size of Great Britain enables us to easily visit other locations for short breaks away from home.

Within just a 2 hour drive from where I live in Shropshire I can find myself:-
- enjoying the village atmosphere of Broadway in the Cotswolds
- eating Bakewell Tart in the Peak District
- Strolling around the historic Docklands in Liverpool
- Enjoying the view from the top of the Great Orme in Llandudno, Wales
- Within just a few minutes I can be enjoying a cup of tea and a slice of cake looking upon the iconic Ironbridge, Shropshire.

In the last year the thoughts of fabulous holidays abroad have been discouraged, my doctor thinks the risk of me picking up a respiratory infection from air travel too risky. But why let that stop me as there is so much more of the UK to be discovered. If you find it difficult to explorer further from home or sometimes find life can create obstacles, then I find a short 'Mini Break' can over that escape away. Pack your essentials items and a few luxury treats, my pamper essentials include a face mask, everything I need for a manicure, and a good book. I like to balance sightseeing with relaxing, allowing myself the chance to recover as my scoliosis effects my mobility and energy.
It can be pretty tricky predicting how the weather will behave once you have planned a break away - but be brave whatever the weather has to offer do not let it stop you enjoying yourself, smile what ever the weather!
I was sent a mini break kit from TENA Lady for the purpose of this post, did you know that 47% of British women have experienced bladder weakness. Do not let bladder weakness stop you from enjoying a mini break away from home, let TENA Lady give you your confidence.
Do you have a short break planned, or a favourite location to visit?
