Blogtoberfest Fail

I am not going to blog tonight. The End.
(Knew I couldn’t make it!)

Blogtoberfest Day 13



Blogtoberfest Day 3: I’m sure Amy denoted today Clocktober to remind us all to turn them forward!

I’m by no means a part of the anti-Daylight-Savings-camp, but the wisdom of starting it a day before school starts back kind of escapes me. It takes me at least a few days to fully adjust, and the kids too. I wonder how many kids will turn up late for school on Monday?!

This boy is showing signs of wanting to play all night, so it won’t be just that one lost hour I’m bemoaning in the morning :yawn:

Holiday Snaps

Our trip away last week was so very welcome, but at the same time… well, you know. Holidays with young children are never really completely restful, are they? But with a view like this from our accommodation in Port Fairy:


Views like these to visit:


And fun like this to be had:


…I can’t really complain, now can I?

We headed down to Port Fairy, on the coast of western Victoria, for three nights, and then headed north to Halls Gap in the Grampians mountain ranges for another three. The weather was a little volatile, but we did manage to get out and explore a bit, spend time on the beach (albeit rugged up), walk a couple of short easy bushwalks, and cook a few marshmallows on a campfire. We also sought out cheese, chocolate, fabric and devonshire teas – all pretty standard requirements for our family holidays 🙂 In the rainy bits, we very happily lazed about inside – there might have even been a bit of crochet and (shock!) a bit of cross-stitch.

Sigh. So nice. Wish we could do it all over again next week.

PS. Pssst, Mum, more photos over here!

Blogtoberfest Day 2 – squeaking in just under the wire, at 11.32pm! And apologies to anyone who read the pre-edit version. At this time of night, my brain it does not.
