A Country Break {part one}

There is nothing better than getting away from it all. No computers, no phones, no foxtel. Last year we found this wonderful old house in Northern NSW to rent for holidays. We enjoyed it so much that we went back for a week these school holidays - and I'm sure we will return again!

It's so perfect for kids - loads of room to run around and big gardens to explore. It's gloriously peaceful and relaxing. There were several days we went exploring in the car - there are so many places within a close proximity. A morning in Byron Bay then down to Lennox Head for lunch. An afternoon in Bangalow. Coffee in Ballina. A day exploring local eateries. More on that to come!

Days at home started with a trip to the local shop for coffee and hot chocolate and the paper. Then sitting around reading the paper and Grandma doing the crossword. Then a little bike riding in the yard. Miss TikiBoo can proudly say she can now ride without training wheels.

Firewood was chopped by Daddy under close supervision to ensure he didn't lose a finger.

Then evenings were spent sitting around the open fire.

A perfect way to spend a winter week!
