It’s really going to take me quite some time to adjust to ‘school life’ and the associated school holidays with imposing stresses of the dilemma of what to do with the kids now that they’re not in someone else’s care for most of the day…
It’s our 1st year of ‘big school’ and I’ve already lost the plot at being Super Mom, but admittedly now that I’ve lowered my standards things are much better for all of us – except that I keep getting hauled in to the teachers office to tend to my neglect of school basics. Oh well. Another day then.
“We’ve” decided to opt for a holiday to Cape Town to visit the kids cousins for Michael’s birthday this year in lieu of a party with all the bells and whistles with friends. However, on a recent business trip to KZN my hubby came across St. Ives and immediately decided that it would be a great place to get away to for Michael’s actual birthday weekend. So, it’s a win-win situation all round really.
The place is fabulously quiet and remote. Filled with wildlife which freely walk up to your doorstep to greet you – zebra & buck mostly. Kids fishing lessons and kids activities. The restaurant provides packed picnic baskets complete with cooler bags, crockery and linen for informal luncheons at various thatched, shaded, areas scattered around the dam.
The family suites have a separate room for adults and kids with adjoining bathroom and kitted out kitchen.
Quite excited just thinking about it…
