Heros and Fizzers

Our last family holiday was in 2007. We spent two weeks on Bribie Island, soaking up the sun and getting to know the grandkids. Jayden enjoyed battling the waves - the heroes that built up as they rolled in, and the fizzers - those that "fizzled out" by the time they reached us. Spending so much time in the ocean cleared up his eczema within days and the three of us felt so relaxed, so happy and healthy...

That holiday seems so long ago now, but the memories are still fresh. I've struggled through this winter. It's never been a good time of year for me (suffering from seasonal affect disorder), and as I sit here writing this I long for a break away from the routine of my life, a different environment, a warmer climate, a change of pace...

We've begun planning. It's something to look forward to.

...but what do we do with the cat!?

  1. Lisa, a beautiful piece! Love Bribie Island!!
    Why live in dull-old Melbourne where its always cloudy?? Queensland ROCKS with its high percentage of sunny days and the beaches ...Think about it!
