Australia Day 2017

Hello y'all!

Today we are celebrating Australia Day... or Straya Day - in Aussie slang! It's a public holiday in the Australian calendar, so no work nor school today... ☺ All around the country, this day is celebrated with parties and barbecues.  

We had a simple barbecue at home, just us as a family. It was very relaxing with a day off, especially as school started this week and that's always a bit stressful after the long Summer holiday/Christmas holiday. It's never easy to get back into the normal routine with school lunches and bus trips. Tomorrow is a normal day with school and work... and guess what, after the weekend, it's only 9 weeks until the Easter holiday... - not that I'm counting or

A holiday adventure

The kids and I went to a friend's house, out in the country for a couple of days during the school holidays. So much fun - and so relaxing!

Yours truly enjoying the sun and the pool

Jonah liked spending time in the water - and dreaming of a pool of our own... So do I, actually!

Lily enjoyed playing with Doris the dog 

Beautiful sunset

Post Christmas get together

As we didn't have a chance to get together before Christmas, 
I promised my  Swedish bff, Petra, to keep Christmas up a while longer... 

A lovely get together!

♥ This is truly the best time of the year ♥

Here's Jonah with his friend M
