Nearing the end of a glorious 2.5 weeks of annual leave. Spending quality time with my hubby and toddler has meant the world to me. This means I was there to give out the extra cuddles needed and to provide support through those challenging temper tantrums. Most of all we had lots of fun being silly together and giggling lots.
A week at the beach enabled me to disconnect my brain and just relax. A friendly echidna would roam through our backyard looking for ants, the kookaburra would laugh at us (might have something to do with the green crocs Master F was sporting) and the wallabies would bound past us (not the rugby players).
I managed to read a book – Cocktails at Naptime (see more here) which is something I am determined to do more of. Some light on funny stories were great therapy and I will admit to an early afternoon tibble while toddler had a nap and I read or hung out with hubby.
The other great thing was the fresh seafood we purchased from the wharf every other day. Hmmm Sydney rock oysters are the best in my book and we were lucky it was prawn season. Texy was wrapped that Master F likes prawns but not so much at peeling them for both of us!
We ended our holiday with some extended family in Canberra. It was full on arriving into a big city after a week in the country. Thank god for the portable dvd player and the endless supply of the Wiggles DVD for the car trips and hotel room.
Lets just say we learnt a lot about what you can’t do on a holiday with a toddler. You will probably catch me at a theme park on the sunshine coast next time.
I have some random questions I would love to hear your views on
Crocs? Hot or Not?
Holiday with extended family..would you?
When and where is your next holiday?
