so on Friday afternoons Luke finishes work at lunchtime so when the kids are on school holidays this makes me happy because I know we can have a proper family afternoon with both our kids!
This Friday afternoon just gone it was like 1000 degrees outside and this year I’ve told Luke we are not buying a big pool for the garden until the gardens been redone, so we had to decide if we were going to do another dreaded beach trip (myself being the one who dreads it) or we were going to go and hunt for a public pool! Then I suddenly remembered this quiet hotel that my friends and I used to visit when Connor was little. he used to sleep in the afternoons so we’d go to this hotel where he could sleep in his buggy in the shade and me and my friends could have lunch and sunbathe. Now he’s 4 he doesn’t nap anymore or fit in a buggy for that matter!! We decided to check it out and see if it had become busy as we hadn’t been there for at least a year, after driving up and down the east over cliff about 10 times and pulling into at least 3 wrong hotels we finally found the Cliffside hotel which had been revamped and promptly renamed ‘ocean beach hotel’ !
Its so nice when we get all this nice weather and I’ve noticed it generally puts people in really good moods, when the sun is out everybody is happy and smiling. such a shame it never lasts for long as this week we are back to being a bit gloomy and very humid!
The only thing with the hot weather and having kids is I get very paranoid about the kids burning so end up religiously smothering both of them in factor 50. obviously its better safe than sorry and all kids should be smothered in cream every hour even if their only out in the sun for 10 minutes, I read somewhere that your more likely to get burnt when your not directly in the sun and your caught off guard!
This week we are a bit broken up with Millie as she has a family event on her mums side to attend so I’ve decided we will go to the circus Wednesday night and mayber do a day out somewhere on the Friday, so look out for a post and review of what I thought and what the kids thought in their own words!
enjoy the rest of your week guys and keep and eye out for new posts in all my categories!
