Winter, be gone!

It's funny how the end of summer brings welcome relief from the heat, but by the end of winter, the heat is very welcome.

This winter has been tough. The MissyMoos seem to have suffered through sickness after sickness. Three kids at three different places, has meant the pool from which germs can be contracted is that much larger. And contract them they have. Particularly MissyMoo3 (23 months), who has coughed and spewed her way through her first winter in day care.

So with netball season at an end (almost - my ladies team has made the play-offs, so we're still going) and Saturday mornings now free, we grabbed the opportunity for a weekend away with both hands.

The weather forecast was not overly promising, but boy were we pleasantly surprised! We enjoyed sunshine, food and NO SCHEDULES. It was just what we needed to recharge the batteries, for our little family of five to delight in one another, to make some memories.

It's pretty special when you can say you went to the beach ...


 ... and the pool ...


 ... on the same day in August.

  1. Noi invece ci avviamo verso l'autunno, le mattine sono già più fresche e penso con piacere al cambiamento di stagione.

  2. Winter and illness, urrghh! Immune building I guess but I am sure we'd rather do without the running to the nearest bucket/toilet. The promise of warmer weather is appearing around here too! We spent a lovely morning at the beach on Sunday and Chook's birthday party on Saturday had perfect warm weather, sun shining and lots of outside play!

  3. I must admit that I enjoy winter but these warm days we've been having in Brisbane are really making me look forward to spring!

  4. I'm so over winter. Today we had a glimpse of sunshine and I could actually feel the warmth of spring teasing me. It can't come quick enough.

    1. It has been teasing for a while here - warm and then the temp suddenly drops again.
