there's no place like home

Happy New Year! We are back from our beach holiday to Lindeman Island and have had a very relaxing week full of tropical weather, swimming and summer activities with the kids. I'm not usually a beach person so I had to dig out the swimmers and pack the sunscreen and hats. My children love the water so we spent most of the time in the pool and making sandcastles on the beach.....I even managed to finish a novel too! It felt strange not to worry about cooking meals or cleaning the house - it made me realise how much time I do actually spend doing the housework.

It is good to be back home though and we are now getting ready for school. Ashley starts school this year and I'm a little sad - she has always been the baby of our family and I can't believe she will be starting kindy.

Hope are are enjoying the school holidays too....only a couple of weeks to go!

time to pack

I know NYE fireworks were a week ago but we are running on holiday time around here and things are taking a lot longer than usual! We are off on a little holiday tomorrow....just the four of us, and we are looking forward to some nice family time together in the sun. Have a good week everyone and see you when we get back!
