Hello from the air!
I’m on a plane. Off to the beautiful Sunshine Coast region of Australia.
Full of sunshine, beaches and in-laws.
Well 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.
I’m traveling with my husband and 2 boys which means that my husband half filled a suitcase with his clothes and then sat on the couch while I packed the rest.
What an honour to be trusted with packing for the children. (Yes you may have detected some possible sarcasm there.)
Here’s a fun fact for all the seven year olds out there:
If you go lick the reception desk at the doctors on a Monday you’ll be back at the doctors and on antibiotics by Thursday.
*Just because a bench is at your face level doesn’t mean you need to suck on it.
I’m a little bit tired and grumpy at the moment (after a couple of sleepless nights with the bench licker) and I can’t be bothered saying what I want so instead I will quietly fester over everyone else’s inability to read my mind.
P.S If you could read my mind it would say please leave me alone for a while without judging me. Give me some space to just be.
Anyway back to staying with the in-laws.
It’s been a while since they raised their 2 sons. I’m not sure that they’re ready for all the dirt, noise and snot that is about to descend on them.
They visited us 12 months ago. They stayed in a hotel and came to visit.
Approximately 10 minutes into the visit my 7 year old punched his 9 year old brother in the guts. He responded by kicking his brother in mouth dislodging his already very wobbly two front teeth with a large quantity of blood as well.
Then my husband screamed at them both and approximately 25 minutes into their visit my father in law said he felt tired and they decided to go back to the hotel.
So why would I not be looking forward to this relaxing family holiday?
I will be having a quiet walk along the beach at sometime though and I might even get up early on Saturday and take a nice photo of the sunrise.
We are not alike but we are family so I will fake smile until I can make my excuses and go to bed.
The good news is that I’m having some minor surgery next week and I get a quiet night in hospital on my own to look forward to.
