|One of my favorite cabins - Pennyroyal Farms at Dean's Marsh, Victoria. Lovely fireplace and a loft for Tom to sleep in. They also are pet friendly, so Peppy had a wonderful stay also.|
In my own home I've gotten up early (because that's what i do) but then oh my, I've crawled back into bed for a snuggle or a read and i think on two days was not dressed before lunchtime. I've read my favorite blogs, learnt a great deal from my latest book (more on another post - it deserves it's own), watched a doc on food forests, cooked wonderful food for friends on Saturday night (slow cooked lamb shanks and garlic mash), shared a movie, planted seeds and pottered in my garden. I knew where everything was, the Hubby and son had their own stuff and were not out of sorts being out of routine, and generally i enjoyed my own home and kept my money in the bank.
We go to so much effort to make our homes exactly as we like them, with everything just so and then spend a lot of money to go elsewhere for a break. Perhaps its only that i feel this way because i am out of the house all week and when i get home it go go go with cleaning, shopping and cooking at night and on weekends. I could certainly understand a stay-at-home Mum wanting a break away or a change of scenery but for me I rarely get to be a homemaker that can take time to cook and smell the basil (i don't have roses).
I don't want to go to work tomorrow (though i love my job) but at least I'm going to be relaxed with a few meals stocked up in the freezer and the washing is done and the rest of the week can just float by.
Did you go away or stay home? Is it only me who feels like holidays are just alot of work?
