Postcard from Bali…
Well, we survived the 10hour flight from Dubai to Bali which I was so happy about. I had never taken mylittleloves on a day flight purely as I assumed night flights would be easier (perhaps they would sleep more and I would get more time to watch movies in peace), I was sooo wrong! Day flights are my new favourite. You are up in ‘care bear land’ which distracts them for atleast 10minutes.. Colouring books.. Movies.. Disney TV and WiFi (thank you Emirates).. Sticker books and friendly flight attendents.. We arrived at our destination in no time at all.
The only thing I was nervous of was making sure my bum bag was always closed (yes they are in fashion now) and that we only drank bottled spring water (no brushing teeth with tap water). Mybiglove unpacked us all (his OCD comes in handy sometimes) and after the incredible shower we all settled in for bed!
Unfortunately after all my giving out to the kids for drinking pool water, making sure we took time to brush teeth with bottled of water and my constant phrase “use more sanitizer”, I had such an incredible shower that i perhaps swallowed the water and for the next 24hours ended up like poor Charlotte from sex and the city 2! I have a new found respect for that Mammy!
Now we are all back in action. Hooray!
Cadhla-Rose at 6years old is no longer a vegetarian (thank you bali) and Aoibhie has decided ice cream is an acceptable meal 24/7 but do you know what? We are all loved up and full of wonderlust for this magical destination.
(Just a postcard- I hope to fill you in after happy hour)
