Life Lately!


How are you all? I really appreciated all of your comments on my last post it is an important issue! One that I don’t love talking about but I am glad that I did! I thought I would do a quick catch-up post on life lately!

We had some construction in our home because of flooding. It ended up taking a lot longer than expected. Some of the worst of it was planned for the school holidays so I took that opportunity to get out of town. I took my girls to visit my Dad in Yamba!

Yamba is a beautiful beach town, which is also located by the river. Lots of beautiful water views everywhere! And a very relaxed culture.

They had been perpetually sick for the last two weeks of school, passing things back and forwards. We actually all arrived up there and got sick, but we flew home feeling much much better. It was so nice to relax and unwind…


The girls found the whole trip to be an exciting adventure. From the short flights to the fishing they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.


It was wonderful to spend time with my Dad and make memories. And just unwind. How often do we feel like we can indulge in relaxation when we are at home?


The weather was perfect and the water was really warm. It was lovely to be able to have a beach break before winter sets in (although it is really taking its time this year, not that I am complaining).

Is there anywhere that you regularly take vacations at or used to regularly vacation at? What are some of your favourite vacation memories?

  1. Oh Jess, that sounds lovely.

    You know I go to my mum’s a bit don’t you? One of the things I like about going there is that I feel like I can relax. I don’t HAVE to be at my desk. (I have no desk!) I don’t HAVE to be writing etc…

    And I can imagine the time with your dad was nice for father / daughter and grandfather / granddaughter bonding!

  2. We go home to visit our families a couple of times a year. My husband and I did not meet until we were in our mid-twenties, but grew up not far from one another which means we can visit both families at the same time. It’s good, but can also feel kind of hectic. This past winter I was actually home for two solo visits (family related stuff) and it was nice to just hang out at my parents house and not be rushing back and forth (nothing against my in-laws, it was just a different pace and felt more like being at home, if that makes sense).

    Growing up, my family went camping every summer at Kejimkujik National Park. It is still one of my favorite places in the world.
