to travel or not to travel

I am not ashamed to admit that I like to travel – a lot! Everyone here at the studio actually quite likes to tinker in the travelling side of things. But I am ashamed to admit that I don’t do nearly as much of it as I would love to.

Those big European jaunts that devour weeks of your life or the island getaway where all you do is read, eat and sleep or even those one-nighter’s (without kiddies) that are not far away but feel like just as much of an escape – I love them all!

So of late, the feet have been getting itchy and every travel advertisement watched or read sounds like the most amazing opportunity. So, I fear a case of ‘holiday depression’ is not far off (bugger these cool weather colds everyone else seems to be catching, I have got me a big time case of this).

So what to do? I know what you are thinking, first world problem and all that. Well I agree. I am the first to complain there is not enough time in a day and here I am planning on cutting a huge chunk of that time away. But I also have to admit that the huge chunk of time a holiday takes up can empower you for many many months. And I want to be empowered.

So essentially I am looking and looking and hoping. Hoping that just the right opportunity for empowerment falls into my lap and I can cure my case of itchy feet.

Everyday nothings – prepping for chrissie

This past week has been filled with an excessive amount of festive frivolity.There has also been some unexpected big decision making, holiday prepping and the wrapping … so much wrapping!

And we are now officially exhausted!

Bags are packed, twisties have been consumed for lunch and the anticipation for Santa is reaching levels that soon only dogs will be able to hear what the kids say.

So on that note we wish you the merriest festive season possible and look out 2015, something tells me its going to be out of this world exciting. Enjoy!
