When I was at uni, me and my pal Rosie always had a map on the wall. A ‘You Are Here’ arrow pointed to Oxford. ‘But You Wish You Were Here’ arrows pointed to many parts of the world, mainly tropical.
Here on a wintery day in Sydney, I’m wishing I was back at the Outrigger On The Lagoon in Fiji.
At the new adults-only complex, very specifically… and even more specifically… floating about in that pool clutching a mocktail.
You might remember – did I mention – my husband and I treated the kids to a great family holiday there last year. I’m delighted that the review of the kids club that I wrote - find it here – gets hundreds of hits a month.
(There just aren’t enough detailed kids club reviews on the internet, I’m telling you.)
We did have a lovely time, all of us. I was so lazy I couldn’t be bothered going to the spa….
Anyway, I’ve heard that there’s now an adults-only are at the Outrigger, with a 20m lap pool, a 35m lagoon pool and a swim-up bar and bistro.
So now, I’m wishing I was there… with the twins joyfully at the kids club and the teenagers playing guitar by the main resort pool.
How peaceful does that look?
That’s a long way from how my house looks just now! I can’t see any piles of dirty washing there, no dishwashers needing unloaded.
Ah well, don’t mind me… just a thought and now I must think about a meal plan and who’s taking whom to rugby league training.

Where are you dreaming of today?
Does it have an adults-only area??!!
Happy holiday dreaming
PS We paid our own way to the Outrigger Fiji last year, on the excellent advice of good family friends.
