Due to my third – trisemester pregnancy, I and hubby decided to stay in Sydney, Australia this time around. As per usual, we would most likely be in our hometown, Jakarta – Indonesia, spending Christmas and New Year with our big families.
Honestly, after we made this decision, I slightly feel disappointed for not being able to spend the holiday seasons with our extended family. You know when you see all the family gatherings via social media, then FOMO” hits. That’s what I felt at the beginning of our holidays. I wasn’t in the mood for few days, I acted cold to my hubby and Jared, even when they did nothing wrong to me. It was JUST ME and MY HORMONES. Ha. #pregnancyproblem
Then, I realised, it’s going nowhere. I am tangled. What did I do?! I just created a problem that should not be a problem at all. If you can’t change the situation, change your perspective. SO I DID. I started to plan out a daily activities calendar with my boys; from swimming, soccer, art class, beach day out, to road trip.
And the day finally came…Yesterday we had a chance to drove 2 hours away from CBD to the Hunter Region of NSW, Hunter Valley. It was overall a relaxing trip despite of the cloudy and rainy weather. We had such a sensational brunch followed by a nice cuppa of chocolate in the midst of winery. And as we drove down back home, we passed by a house farm owned by such a kind family who allowed us to feed their horse and took many pictures on their yard. What an experience for each one of us, especially Jared that he’s gotta see the real horses closely and fed them. (Unfortunately, none of us were even care about taking photos, we were too excited to pat & play with the livestocks).
After all, summer holiday in Ausy wasn’t a bad option at all. I do feel HOME.
Home is not where you are, it is who you are with.
3 more days till Daddy’s back at work. So, I’d better step up my planning game. Stay tuned for more road trip post from our squad. Bye for now. Good night.
Hope you all had such a relaxing time with families. Stay safe friends. X
