We celebrated our first school holidays by taking some time out to go to Somerset Dam. We decided in stay in a house rather than camp, mostly to make it easier to take the boat. We arrived at the house, unpacked, the children marvelled at the number of toilets, and then we decided to go… Continue reading Somerset Dam in April
We were lucky enough to get tickets to see Tim Minchin last Saturday night as part of the opening celebrations of HOTA (Home Of The Arts, formerly the Gold Coast Arts Centre). I was pretty excited about this – my husband and I always managed to be away whenever Tim Minchin performed in Brisbane, so we’ve been wanting to see him for a while. To make it even more exciting, we organised the kiddos to stay the night with their Grandma, and took off into Surfers.

We’d started out our morning in Hervey Bay, so we didn’t have… Continue reading Fraser Island Trip – day one
We were lucky enough to get a toddler free weekend a few weeks ago and decided to go camping at Lake Maroon, along with a few friends. We took our boat and had a fantastic time, I didn’t even open one of the three books that I took with me, I was too busy chatting… Continue reading Lake Maroon camping
