    I quit my job last year after working full time for 14 years. I was a student last year and this is now my one and only summer holiday as an adult! I plan on spending it with my 5 year old daughter and doing lots of trips to parks and beaches!

    If the weather is nice, either a day by the seaside, or nice walk followed by a pub lunch.
