A holiday at Killcare

A family holiday
squeezed in between uni assignments, college days and work
just one hour north
a hop and a skip from Barranjoey Head

ocean views
a big deck
a small house 
bright and white and clean inside

lots of reading
playing games
feeling lazy

the beach
too cold for me after a few minutes in the water
walking on the rocks
sitting on a beach towel watching the waves and the people

bbq dinner
apple crumble
avoiding shops
managing with what food we have

short walks for me
recovering from a cold
lots of tissues
long exploratory hikes for Steve

time to stop and think
back over the term that has been
and compare life to a year ago
 when we had our last holiday
and wonder what the next 12 months will hold.

Hi Fiona,

I've been trying to find a way to contact you via email but couldn't find it! My name is Bronte O'Brien, I'm from a publication called The Big Smoke. We're running a series of articles on Australian blogs that we think our readers should engage with, and we'd love to feature A Woman of Notes in one of them alongside other blogs that we think are neat. If you haven't heard of us, we're one of Australia's leading opinion sites, and you can head to or (our recently launched US version), to check out whom our CEO is, or just straight to Wikipedia.

If you could get in touch with me super soon (bronteo at thebigsmoke dot com dot au) that would be fantastic as we don't want you to miss out!

Hope this reaches you!

Warm regards,
