At 34 weeks pregnant, foggy brained with acid reflux & pelvic pain 😵, the last thing I want to do is go on a road trip to somewhere away from the comforts & familiarity of home. But, this is exactly what we did last Saturday.
I realized now was my last time to experience a change in scenery for a very long, long time. I also missed looking out into the infinite horizon and breathing in fresh salty sea air, so I asked the husband if we could stay overnight at a beach resort.
The day was rainy and gloomy, but I got my wonderfully tangy sea air, seafood (I swear the hearty Tom Yum soup silenced my acid reflux for the rest of our stay!😃), and yep, definitely a change of environment 😍
My daughter wanted to bathe in the sea and I myself wanted get at least knee-deep into sea water, but a warning about stone fish during low-tide changed our minds (what are stone fish?) 😳😳 So we just sat on the chairs and stared into the horizon.
This was the view outside our window. My husband and daughter still got to enjoy the pool the following morning while I lounged under a parasol and took pictures of my bloated feet 😄😄😄
There was an al fresco buffet for dinner that evening and some kind of magic show was going on. But by then I was feeling very tired (but contented) and preferred to stay in the air-conditioned room enjoying a banana split 😋
So I guess what I’m trying to say here is: go treat yourself. Whatever it is, big or small, it’s sure to make you smile 🙃❤️
What made YOU smile this week?
