Three things Thursday



1. I don't know what possessed me, but I took Ellie and Jimmy on a road trip to visit their grandparents, sans Mr Fork. It's usually a six hour drive and I allowed nine hours for it with the two kids... I don't really know what I was thinking. All I can say is that we are here now, and I'm very much looking forward to Mr Fork flying to meet up with us tonight. It's hard work being the sole parent... kudos to all those FIFO wives and full time single parents. I salute you! I am very much not looking forward to the drive back home though!

2. It's not all bad though. I mean honestly, we are at the beach. And it's stunning! And I get to wake up to ocean sounds every morning (not to put too fine a point on it, but if I'm going to be accurate, thanks to Jimmy I also get to wake up to it several times a night). And once everyone is awake, then I get to hear Ellie ask continually if we can go to the pool/beach/somewhere yet...

3. Happy Easter long weekend! I hope everyone celebrates it with plenty of relaxation, plenty of hot cross buns, plenty of chocolate, and whatever else floats your boat.

How are you spending your Easter?

  1. My goodness, I find a 6 hour drive a challenge as an adult with no children in tow!! I am awed by you making it, and hope you do have a very relaxing time now you're there.
