Week 45, 2017

Resetting life.

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.

The week that was:

Nusa Dua, Bali - our 7-day holiday escape. At the end of this post, you'll see a link to read my full review of our trip away.

ON MY PLAYLIST

Cat Stevens // The First Cut Is The Deepest

I love 70’s “folk” music… James Taylor, Carole King, Cat Stevens – their songs are pure and true and remind me of simpler times. So to get me through the working week after holidays, Cat Stevens was my jam.

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.

TRAVEL REVIEW

Ayodya Resort, Nusa Dua

As mentioned above, we went on holidays last week. To a place that I never thought I’d ever go… Bali. If you’re an Australian – you’ll understand why I never wanted to go there. 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…

    I’m so glad you are back. I’ve missed you. Now let’s chat Louis Theroux – I’ve seen all of the dark states series and they are prickly and depressing topics. But as always he handles them well, with compassion and care, and a little humour mixed in. I hadn’t seen Constance’s post either but I couldn’t agree more. I hope we can all be a little more kind and reach out to each other! Bali photos looked fabulous! I’m so glad you guys got a good break and enjoyed the time xx
