We are a busy family of 4, to be able to have a holiday and spend some quality time together, would be building our family.

I'm a WAHM recovering from a hospital stay where I had four major surgeries. Our family needs some cheer and joy after a rough year!

As I sit here sitting under glass

enjoying the extra boost of Vit D

from Melbourne's mid winter sun....

I dream, I dream, I do, of a far away place,

where the sun does shine,

where the family and I can go outside

To find that the sun isn't always under glass!

After baby#2 arrives, it would be a nice easy holiday for us, and would make sure DS#1 is still special.

I would love to win this for a gift for my sister and her two little girls, they cant afford a holiday as the youngest girl has type 1 diabetes and my sister needs to work full time to support them as a single parent.

“Why does your family deserve a holiday in Queensland?”

My twins are 3 and we have never had a family holiday. This would be a fantastic first!

With a family of eight, life’s pressures can be great, like ships passing in the night, a break away together would be such a delight!  original.gif original.gif original.gif

So I can bribe to kids to view things that are not behind a iPod screen. Real life might actually interest them!

It is dreary and cold, it's making me feel old.
A trip with my family is the only remedy.

We spent one night at Paradise Resort last year. The next day we went to Wet and Wild. Never again will I pay the entry fee to W&W - my kids had more fun on the day we spent at Paradise Resort!

We haven't had any holiday time together as a family for 5 1/2 years.  Paying the bills has been more important.

We honeymooned in Queensland and it would be wonderful to return for the first time as a family to maybe start a new traditon.

A second chance at life by going with the moment rather than the chaos and craziness after having babies.

We deserve a holiday because we have had a crappy year so far and need a lift to make us feel better.

#74 Rachel70

Posted 17 July 2012 - 10:27 PM

We deserve it because we are honest, hard working and would appreciate how lucky we were if we won.

Life threatening illnesses, big changes, hard times - a difficult year.  I've not had time to give my girls enough TLC. Time would be a precious gift.
