Good morning Sunshine!

Yesterday morning I awoke to an outside temperature of -1.5 degrees and ice on the windscreen, a whining sick baby and a 4 year old who knew something was most definitely “up”.

This morning?

The pounding waves of the Indian Ocean outside our villa. 26 degrees and a cloud free blue sky mirrored in our pool reflection signalling a beautiful day ahead. Crisp, white linen with the fluffiest down pillows you could imagine on a king size bed and a slumbering husband by my side.

I sat here. And had my morning coffee.

It appears that we have landed in some kind of tropical heaven. And I am feeling very, very lucky and grateful to be here.

I shall have a cocktail for every one of you Mum’s out there today because YOU deserve this. Everyone does. I shall make it my duty. My obligation. You are most welcome.

And ohmygod THANK YOU Mum for letting us do this. Now, I best get drinking. Cheers!


  1. You know it’s not very nice to tease!

  2. I’ve been reading for awhile now Beth, but had to comment that I am soo jealous! That does indeed look like paradise. Enjoy your fab holiday!

  3. Absolutely stunning. Enjoy every second Beth! I’m green with envy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Have a long island ice tea for me please.

  5. Have fun! I have the weather and the Indian Ocean, but child free “me and hubby” time is missing. Please reveal location of villa on your return. I have first visit to Bali in August.

  6. You know it’s snowing in Bowral right?? We’ve had a massive dump of snow in the Snowy Mountains, so stay as long as you can on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Love Posie

  7. As much as I want to hate you right now, I just feel really happy that someone is enjoying something so blissfully idyllic… please have two cocktails for me, and a nap, and a lie in, and some morning sex, and another cocktail.

  8. Jealous, much!

    Enjoy! Xx

  9. I still love you. Just. x

  10. Oh my. Can you please stop it with the bragging. Meanwhile, my kids are really here, in the room with me. Screaming.

    Have fun. And I’m a little jealous. Can you tell?


  11. Bali is paradise. Talk about heaven on earth! Except for the mangy dogs.
