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?
