I’m escaping to Sydney. A flying visit to attend the Escape Travel Holiday Reviewer’s finale. A winner, chosen from five fantastic entrants, will be announced at the event. I am thrilled to be in the running for this and wish everyone the best of luck.

Mostly, I am looking forward to sleeping in crisp, white hotel sheets in a bed all by myself. I am already imagining myself lolling about in the pool, relaxing in a bubble bath and sipping some bubbles harbourside. And there’s something about airports and being in transit which I love. A night away to read, relax and watch the boats cruise by the Opera House is the best.


First, I have to go on a kindy excursion to a farm. Yes, it’s my penance for going away kid-free. And because I’ll be cutting it fine, I’ll have to change my clothes in the car while my husband drives me to the airport because that’s how we roll. I predict the first thing I do is scrub the smell of “farm” off my hands, followed closely by drinking a gin and tonic.

And then a night of luxuriating. It’s going to be a good day. I hope you all find some time to unwind too.
