Holidaying isn't quite as simple as it used to be. I fondly recall the days of last minute flights, throwing my clothes into a suitcase and spending my days eating, shopping and drinking. Packing now takes two full days and you could be forgiven for thinking we were relocating not heading off for a two week holiday!
But oh the fun of visiting Melbourne now that my sister and I have had bambinos. Endless days of overindulgence have been replaced with picnics in the park, visits to the wildlife farm and long afternoons playing on the swings or flying a kite.
Oscar loves visiting his cousin Amelie. They spend their time together laughing, giggling, dancing and playing chasey. There's never a dull moment, nor a better reason to relax at night with a glass of champagne!
We're currently waiting for Amelie to arrive home from her Gran's house so that we can chase bubbles through the garden and play with puppy Chloe. How I wish I could bottle some of that endless energy!
