My Perfect Holiday

My perfect holiday starts with my family and me,

Checklists,  shopping,  packing,
Oh what chaos it can be.

Nappies, swimwear, lotion and not a book in site,

I wouldn't change it for the world,
Whereas others might.

We have to fly to our destination, 

Eva is as happy as can be,
Who will she sit by?
Will it be Daddy, Ophelia or me?

Our destination is beautiful,
Such a pretty, pretty sight,
A week staying here,
Sounds just about right.

We spot lots of colours,

from the sun shining bright,
We sit on the balcony,
And wave the sun a good night.

As a new day dawns,
We spend it at the beach, 
Sun, sea, sand,
The perfect day is within reach.

All week long,

We jump in and out of the pool,
Mummy enjoys 10 minutes on a lilo,
That's the unforbbiden rule.

We laugh, we sing,

We embrace one another,
We eat all the food,
That the locals have to offer,

Sometimes it's loud, 

Sometimes there are tears,
For mummy there is wine, 
For daddy there is beers.

To me this is perfect,

I'm sure you can see,
Any destination is just right,
With my family and me.
