I'm home from holidays and I'm exhausted


As gorgeous as this view is from our apartment windows and balcony in Queensland, Australia I am so glad to say that I am back at home. I am just exhausted from the heat and humidity all week. Even my two teenagers felt the heat and found it too hard to go outside and they are usually the first to hit the beach. It was too hot to have breakfast on the balcony, too hot to go for walks, too hot to even swim, we were sun burnt from an early morning swim and we were only on the beach for 40 minutes. So we spent most of the day in air conditioning looking out. I just don't know how anybody lives in this heat. (No offence Mel) I can't believe how many people were out jogging, playing tennis and just running around. I'm a true winter girl and I love the cold. However I must admit my hair and skin feels amazing, it must be all the moisture in the air (a bit like a sauna). Anyway, I'm back home and looking forward to catching up on what has been happening in the blogging world.
Tomorrow is Australia Day and it's a big celebration countrywide. Happy Australia Day to all the Aussie bloggers, have a fun day.


  1. Welcome back Coty - you sound happy to be back in the more temperate climate of the gorgeous Southern Highlands. Yes, the humidity of Qld. can be a 'challenge' for us Southerners, but it must have been lovely to have had the time away with your family before the busy year starts again. Happy Australia Day to you all!

  2. wish I could have been nice...a whole see to swim in and to take pictures of....I would take a temperature of 40 degrees for granted and stick my had in the sea every now and than...

  3. The old's nice to go away on vacation, but it is so sweet to be back home! Welcome back to blogland...and we are all glad you are back! What a beautiful water view. So sorry it was so hot that it couldn't all be enjoyed as much. That is how Texas is in the hot & humid to do things, which is so different from my beloved California...where we are outside at all times.

    Happy Australia Day....though I don't know what that is? Hugs ~Cheryl

  4. It looks so lovely and relaxing, Coty. I am sorry it was so very hot, hope you got some sweet moments in anyway. xo Lidy
