School holiday fun

My niece loves visiting us during the school holidays and we make sure we spoil her rotten! With no kids of our own, we squash as much as we can into the time she’s with us – movies, eating out, Box Office, junk food; you name it! (okay, so maybe we’re the ones who enjoy it more!)

I took a couple of days off work during the July holidays so that I could spend some quality time with her and it was really great! We had such fun! She’s 13 years old and makes me laugh with her views of the world around her. I seriously can’t remember having such big opinions about world events as she does. But it’s awesome for me to be able to chat to her, to watch her grow and to spend some really ‘girlie time’ together.

Some of my favourite moments …

Breakfast at Knead

Breakfast at Knead – I love this place! And so did Dom with the biggest* strawberry milkshake. It didn’t stop her from ordering a large slush 30 mins later at the movies!

Fun at Bounce, Waterfall Estate (and yes, even i put my socks on & gave it a try!)

Fun at Bounce, Waterfall Estate (and yes, even I put my socks on & gave it a try!) We were both bushed afterwards and headed to my mom for some afternoon relaxing and lunch.

Making chocolate memories at the Cadbury's Marvellous Creations pop-up shop

Making chocolate memories at the Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations pop-up shop. Pure evil! But I just love the two new flavours.

The house is always very quiet when she goes home. Thanks for a wonderful time Dom! We love you lots!
