A really important part of our life is being outdoors. Camping, hiking and travelling are not going to cease just because E has come into our lives. As you might know Blanket Bay is pretty near and dear to our hearts, with my family camping there for the last 17 summers and any time throughout those years as well, and getting married there just over 2 years ago, it’s any wonder that it took 6 weeks before we dragged E down there.
It was a cold weekend, but we all managed to keep warm with many layers of down clothing. It was so lovely to spend evenings sitting by the fire, to spend days walking along the beach and us adults even got an afternoon nap.
When we returned home, I felt rebooted. It was a fantastic chance for me to find myself, since becoming a mother and remember what I wanted out of life. I wrote this post while I was there and enrolled in the Australian Writers’ Centre Newspaper and Magazine Feature writing course the day I got home.
Do you find a couple of quiet days make the world of good for you? Do you need to do something that’s just for you?
