Last school holidays, we spent a week in the land of the Hemsworths.
Not WITH the Hemsworths – just near where I know they live!
Yes the beautiful Byron Bay and surrounds; where the beautiful people stay, play and eat … beautifully healthy food in beautiful places.
Aspirational? Yes of course. By the end of the week I’d planned our move North and was picturing just how glowing we would all be after just a few shorts week at home in Byron.
I mean what’s not to aim for? It all looks so good doesn’t it!
Just imagine if coffee with Daddy looked this good everyday …
And how good those googy eggs would taste when they’d been Hemswhipped …
So you can imagine when I see what Chris’ wife Elsa has popped into the kids’ nude lunchboxes …
I immediately think back to 5.30am this morning when I packed 3 sets of lunch for my babes.
I can guarantee I looked nothing like Elsa (unless you want to add hair everywhere, ugg boots, pjs and the dog bugging me for his breakfast) and I was pretty sure the lunches I had packed would get the big frown!
This morning was a long time ago so I quickly sent a text to my eldest and asked him to flip me back a pic. Here’s what came back …
Appalled at the pic he sent back, I asked if that’s all I gave him. Thankfully he said he had already eaten the tomato and the pear (phew there was some fruit in there) and there are about 8 big strawberries in that ziplock at the back.
I think today (as is often the case) I bombed out. White bread finger bun – covered in sugar and wrapped in cling film and a white bread roll with vegemite, cheese and lettuce.
Could have been worse I guess … but not a celery stick, nude juice, homemade homous, raw slice or nutless slice to be seen. CERTAINLY NOT HEMSWORTHY!
Good on them of course – such a lovely couple with beautiful children. Go them! and Go Me too – I’ll keep trying and next week I’ll do better (promise) xo
