I’m dreaming of a White Christmas…

This morning I have a bit of an achey ear. I’m tired. I am sick of sharing my bed with a 2 year old who hogs the entire pillow. I am looking forward to some time away from my kids this morning even if that means the time is spent in Big W at Mittagong. I’m a little sad that it’s summer but it doesn’t feel like summer. I mean if it’s going to be cold, let it snow! I don’t even seem to have any Christmas spirit. I’m tired.

So. Let’s rewind. 3 years. To when we spent Christmas in Paris! When Daisy wasn’t yet 2. When we met my sister and her now husband and Mum & Step Dad in a fabulous 3 bedroom apartment just around the corner from the Champs Elysees. When we drank endless champagne. When Rob and I spent some time together, alone, in Paris while doting relatives looked after Daisy. When it snowed. Yes, let’s go to my Christmas happy place.

You can trawl back through the archives to December 2008ย and January 2009ย to have a read if it takes your fancy. It certainly is taking mine this morning…


  1. that little picture of her in the brown scarf – melts my heart what a sweetheart great memories

  2. Oh, lovely pics what great memories for you, could have a worse happy place than Paris!!

  3. Gorgeous shots love. Oh Paris, how truly beautiful you are.

  4. I remember those posts ๐Ÿ™‚

    I remember thinking, every couple deserves to have their child minded while they explore Paris together ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s a Happy Gilmore ‘happy place’ right there.

    Maybe you’re due for another holiday some time soon? With doting relatives who’ll mind two children while you take in a bit of culture in another magical place?

    Hey, it’s Christmas … we can dream ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  5. Oh fabulous! We were in Paris 3 years ago too. Bloody excellent. No kids, muchos beer and way too much love (came home with baby on board… too much information?)


    Dream on my friend, i’ll join you.

  6. Oh Paris how I love you.
    We have sunshine here today … I will try and send some your way!

    I feel so nostalgic for Paris that I nearly jumped in to your photos.

  11. As I sit here with more sore throat and tired ears during witching hour with my fractious baby who is making long distance calls on my landline I want to be in Paris too.
