The last leg into Nelson Bay gave us torrential rain and flash flood conditions. We're no stranger to the wild weather in that area. Most times we holiday there, it rains for at least part of the stay. It just wouldn't be the same if it didn't. By Sunday morning though, we were graced with a far different picture. Crisp, crystal clear skies and gorgeous sunshine. We took the entire day in our stride. Leisurely meandering from point to point. Enjoying the time together as a family. Well, mainly enjoying the time. I did comment to Scott on a few occasions, that I think we best wait a couple of years before attempting any holidays of length. As much as we love getting away and as fun as it is sharing precious memories together, the boys need their routine. Being away from the home base is hard work. 3 days and 2 nights is quite enough, before everything starts to turn pear shaped.
After last night's effort of sleeping on a single mattress with Felix, because he was a little congested, therefore restless and crying out every 10 or so minutes, I'm glad to be home tonight. Back to our chaotic form of routine. Back to our basic, healthy meals. Back to the variety of toys on hand... and my Macbook kind of toy. And back to our warm, cushiony, comfortable beds. Home. sweet. home.
