Another one bites the dust. We were confined to a minibreak at home. I have to admit that I was a little glum about it to start with, but got into the swing of it. Afterall, we had all the ingredients for a fun holiday at our doorstep, and that did have the benefit of avoiding a road trip with four whinging children!
We decided that holidays are about spending time together and doing things that you don't normally do. So instead of cooking dinner, washing clothes and mopping floors (she says as if she is a domestic goddess!), we had take-away and picnics, bushwalked, frequented an indoor play centre, visited the Powerhouse Museum and other 'city' activities and had a fantastic game of putt putt golf.
The kids got lots of exercise and had new experiences.
We had a break from the norm and release from the gridlock.
If I could just get over the money we spent on the accommodation we weren't able to use, I reckon I could say that it was another great holiday with four kids.
Have you holidayed in your own city?
