This week we took a trip away; just me and the kids. It was my first time road tripping with the kids. Six hours north through Sydney and we were up the coast visiting my aunt, my sisters and my beautiful little niece. The kids travelled beautifully.
As soon as you walk through the front door of my aunt’s place it’s as though you’ve travelled back in time to the 1950s. Lace covered floral couches, collections of spoons and plates adorn the walls and red velvet bedspreads folded neatly at the bottoms of our beds. It’s fantastic.
And she is the most magnificent old-school host. Little chocolates on our pillows, a bottle of water on the bedside table, folded paisley towels on a rocking chair with a tiny individual soap. Gosh I love her.
Here’s a few things we got up to this week…
I hope you’ve all had a good week. I’m really looking forward to starting our new series on Tuesday April 1. Have you all been making a list of the toys your children play with and how they choose to play? I have been and it’s been an interesting experience; there are definitely things I can be doing to deepen their play even further.
Until I see you on Tuesday evening, have a lovely rest of your weekend. For me, I’ve got some pears to can and some spinach to plant….although it has just started raining so a cup of tea and a nice book instead then.
