Amazing how used we our to our New Life (style) and living in a Motorhome – that is on a fine day! Add rain to the equation of living in a Motorhome with four very active boys and its a different question altogether.
What Is It Like Living In A Motorhome When It Rains?
Yesterday it has rained and rained! It actually has not stopped raining so we have had a lot of inside play – and a lot of cubby houses being made:) Days like that and I so wished we had an Outdoor Room for our boys to escape to!
Raining Nearly All Day 🙂
Yesterday I Received The Best News!
I wrote for a competition that Nuffnang was holding to be invited to Melbourne…..for a Christmas Cocktail Party. I never get the chance to party so I was so amazed when I received the phone call to be told that I won!
Which means I get to escape from Life for two days, and our Motorhome! I will be partying in Melbourne on Thursday night, and fingers are crossed that I get see my son on Saturday. You see I havent seen him for a very long time – not since we waved goodbye to him in Brisbane.
That means I will be offline for the next three days – I don’t have the latest technology with me….so I wont be online unless I can find an Internet Cafe 🙂
When Its Sunny
When the sun is out then our boys are able to get outside and play. We love the sunny days – they are so much fun! But when its raining like it has been then the three younger boys become very loud, very creative inside, and every bed is no longer made!
Our boys love playing at the beach 🙂
Our Day to Day Living
Our Lifestyle is different to most families, yet similar to the families that are living on the road.
We get up very early in the morning – as soon as the Sun is up our boys are usually awake. They so do not get that from me…I love my sleep!
David makes me organic fair trade plunger coffee – we both love our morning coffee!
Then he makes the most yummiest smoothies in the world 😉
He then goes out the door to work.
Once he is gone our boys can either make their first breakfast, or their second breakfast. Usually they have a bowl of porridge, or a bowl of cornflakes and then they make toast. Gosh can they eat 🙂
Depending if it’s a fine day will depend on when we do homeschooling work – or head to the pool for a swim. I love it when we can head to the pool because our boys sleep so much better after a few hours swimming.
Zachery’s Idea of Homeschooling – creating!
By about 10.30am they are all asking “What’s For Lunch. What Time is Lunch” So they usually have a sandwich and fruit!
Then they usually have their heads in a book, or lego, or playing board games, or playing cricket (if it’s a sunny day!) or jumping off our bed with pillows! They make games out of our bed because it’s so high off the floor!
Our boys love exploring Caves 🙂
I usually make our bed about two times a day….or three times 🙂 Then I sweep the floor, about four times a day! Wash the dishes about four times a day….and make about 100 sandwiches a day (maybe not that many!!) and try to keep up to date with the HUGE amount of washing.
Once David gets home from work he helps with any homeschooling work that I couldn’t answer…and helps with showers/dinner!
We love to have dinner outside as a family – its my favorite time of the day! We get to talk, laugh, and eat dinner before its book time. David jumps onto our bed to read the younger boys books, while I wash the dishes. Usually Zach helps with drying the dishes, and then one of the other boys puts the dishes away.
Having Dinner Outside means cuddle time with Dad!
All of our boys are HUGE bookworms 🙂
Sometimes we all get to bed about 8.30 – 9.00 pm. Sometimes I am still blogging, or David has the computer and I am reading – lately I have been reading my favorite books to very late at night!
Then before we know its time to start all over again.
We love the weekends – that is where we get to explore the beaches, the local markets, the fishing spots or even the local attractions!
We have the best lifestyle.
