Yes I did have a freak out on the second day but after that it was all good. Sometimes being single handedly responsible for our whole family causes me to flip out - especially when away from home and my usual sources of support or respite!
Aside from that the holiday was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We did lots of swimming and lazing by the pool, we went fishing and kayaking and to the beach (I only do the beach once a year due to the degree of difficulty involved so I can cross that off the list until 2016 now). I even had a massage and we went out for dinner for my birthday.

I did learn some new holiday truths along the way:
* my friends who describe holidays as 'doing all the stuff you normally do at home with only half the resources' are right;
* I pack too much stuff;
* I'm not a big fan of fishing (too squeamish to get the bait on the line properly);
* It might be time to sign Ashlea up for swimming lessons;
* I think we need a pool;
* Holidays are fun and we need to do this again. Anyone got any suggestions for our next venture?
