    We're going to Melbourne for a couple of nights in about 2 weeks. Taking the ids to the Melbourne zoo to see the elephants and possibly going on the Puffing Billy.

    I would desperately love a family holiday. Indream about it. But alternate reality holiday.

    We are headed down to Augusta (down on the south coast of wa) in January for a week. It has become an annual 'thing', going away somewhere different for a week with dh's parents

    I wondered if that was the reason. 2 of my nephews are autistic. One has never had a holiday for that reason. It's just awful for everyone. My other nephew who is 12 copes fine but the travel there and back is always awful.

    It's rough. I hope as they get older it becomes a reality for your family.

    Heading to Hong Kong and then the Middle East for a 3 week holiday in 2 months. Very excited but also a bit worried about how DS will cope with the long flights.

    The kids and I are heading to the Sunshine Coast next week! We are staying there for 5 nights then I'm taking them to Paradise Resort at the Gold Coast for a couple of nights. The last part is a surprise :-D

    The last two times I've taken the kids on holidays, I've taken mum with me so this is the first time I'm taking them by myself!

    I pay extra into my tax so that I get a nice tax return which I use to book a holiday. Making memories :-)

    We decided to use our tax return to become debt free instead of a holiday... Not before I found 8 nights in Fiji for $6029 for all SIX of us, all food, flights, accom, and free kids club. It hurt.

    My mum was over there with her partner too, so I was able to squeeze the odd massage in

    But apart from that, we spent the days swimming, going to restaurants (waitresses take the kids off you over there so you can eat in peace!), walking along the beach, did a few day activities. It was fantastic and will be even better next year when they are that bit older.
