Happy New Year -holiday at home
We have been holidaying at home for the past two weeks.
The Acting PM was on the telly last night encouraging people to have their holidays at home this year, that is in good old Oz.
DH and I like to holiday in some favourite spots here in WA, but next year as a special treat, we will have a holiday in Melbourne.
Meantime, this past two weeks we have really been holidaying at home. That is, in our own house! Great beds, lots to read. Fine internet connection. Great company -very friendly. Good DVD collection (thanks to Santa). Close to the beach (10 minutes by car).
We have read books and lazed around. We have had the odd visit from a friendly native. We have slept in, and lolled about in our PJs. We have walked on the beach.
Dinner has been minimum effort but maximum taste and nutrition -freshly picked very often from the establishment's own garden.
Side benefit - we are here to keep the garden watered !
I count it as one of life's great blessings that I have a wonderful home that is comfortable. It makes me happy to just be here.
