Finally, it is almost here, we have waited a long time for this - and even though we are only going to Port Fairy for a week, it's just what we all need.
Tomorrow we are catching the ferry from Sorrento to Queenscliff, and will then spend the next seven nights in the picturesque seaside town of Port Fairy. All our getaways are always beachside, we all love the clean sea air and the playtimes on the beach. Since we had kids, this is the longest trip that we will have taken. Crazy really!!!
Now that the baby stage is over and Charlie is down to one sleep a day, it makes it a lot easier to jetset around the country. Well, here's hoping that this is the start of lots of adventures for us.
As I said, we need this break.
Working three days a week, with a long commute, has made me exhausted. Even though I enjoy my "adult" time, "me" time, when you throw in around 3 hours of travel a day, that is what causes extreme tiredness. I feel so guilty dragging my babies out of bed early on two of those working days.
We all need this downtime;
Time to "do" no household chores
Time to "do" coffee when we want too
Time to wrestle, sing and dance, as we choose
Time to sleep in - oh, I doubt that one!
Time to play on the beach for endless amounts of hours as an entire family, with no work commitments
Time to explore new things
Time to meander in shops
Time to relax
Time to not have to be anywhere at any special "time"
One more sleep and we are on that Ferry boat as Coops calls it. The wind in our hair, the sun on our faces, no alarms, no appointments - Time for our little family to spend some much needed quality time together
Do you take family holidays?
One sleep, bliss, our holiday is coming.................
