Back From Our Holiday

10 August 2004

Aaaah, we’re back from our little break. I’ve got so much to catch up with. Eeek the world moves on so quickly when you’re not watching. It’s August already??

We drove up 6 hours north along the coast, to stay with my husband’s parents. It was so nice to indulge in a bit of country laziness – sleeping at 10pm, waking at 10am. Making bonfires. Home cooked meals. Long hot showers. Walks along the creek. Chasing seagulls at the beach. It was all good.

Surprisingly, Callum didn’t kick up too much of a fuss during the car ride. A 16 month old kid in the car seat for 6 HOURS?? I didn’t know who would go mad first.

I borrowed irrating musical toys. I had all his favourite snacks. I had kiddy CDs. I had crayons. I had puppets. We stopped for lunch (road house chips and a meat pie, yeah baby). So it all went well and he even managed to sleep for 2.5 hours during the ride.
