Our Week - the holiday version

We are still in our lovely, lazy holiday bubble. The weather has been terrific so we have been utilising the beach and pool so much. We actually haven't really gone anywhere else or done any other activities. It's all been about the water! 

Meal times are loose and when we are hungry. Dinners are a scramble of what we have in the cupboards or a bbq chicken picked up on the way home or fish n chips at the beach. I'm only hitting the shops when it's a necessity. 

I am really stretching out this holiday vibe for as long as possible before the routine and hustle and bustle of the school year begins. Afternoon naps/quiet time are a regular part of the day for everyone. The hours of 1pm - 3pm is a lovely quiet time for everyone to rest, read and chill out.

Although I have found a little motivation to rearrange the shelves in the living area, paint the coffee tables and a surf board and change over the rugs. I wanted to create a fresh, clean look for the new year. I will have a post up shortly with all the little changes that I've made around the home.

Here are a few snaps from the week-

The lightbox sums up our week and holidays perfectly

Another day, another beach

Afternoon ice cream run

Escaping for some quiet time

Finding spots for Christmas presents and painting things black

The new vibe in the living areas

So happy with the rugs I picked up in the sales. They are from Freedom but are now discontinued.

Couldn't resist picking these pretty flowers up from the markets. 
Someone told me they're called "fairy floss"

Sweet treats for visitors coming over for afternoon tea

Pure Summer!

Boys and bubbles

Enjoying dinner out with friends on these balmy nights

 Picking people up from the Airport means a Krispy Kreme stop!

How has your week been? Are you still on holidays? 
Still clinging to that holiday vibe?


  1. I have never really been a beach person but this year I am loving it!.

    Loving your beach snaps :-)

  2. I've always known those beautiful blooms as "silver princess" - they are from a eucalypt tree. Perhaps they go by more than one name?


Thanks for leaving a comment :) You just made my day xx
