Week 45November 2017

This edition: An overseas holiday for the whole family, the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens and its a battle of the velvet bombers.

I don’t know about you – but I forget just how important it is to have holidays. And by holidays I mean – take a proper holiday, escape to somewhere foreign and enjoy time off from normality.

It’s been ages – I’m talking a good 5 years – from when we last had a proper holiday. Kids have changed that for us, plus our work situation was a bit dicey there for a while so it didn’t feel right to have a holiday when we may have been strapped for cash if jobs fell through.

But last week – we took a holiday! We got on a flight to Bali and took 7 glorious days of basking by a pool, eating and drinking and playing with our kids. We finally relaxed and actually enjoyed the feeling of being all together.

So yeah – my recommendation this week. Book that holiday. Take the break. It’s worth it.

I love the energy of this song, especially when it kicks into gear at about 0:34. Enjoy this little retro step back in time.

Bali is one of those places that attracts a certain type of Australian and to be honest, it just never appealed to me as a holiday destination.

Until that is,  I needed a quick getaway with the family…
