Happy New Year!

How times have changed, a few years ago we would spend weeks planning the perfect New Year's Eve without having to think about child bedtimes, the impossibility of securing a babysitter or in my case spending the New Year nursing a sick toddler who is too blocked up to be able to sleep!

From experience we know that any type of planning or major hype is bound to doom any New Years so with this in mind we made our plans late on the 30th to avoid disappointment and with no hope of  the 'big bang' type of New Years we were happy enough to go out to a nice family dinner, catch up with a few friends at the lake and then head home for our son's bedtime....which became around 12am, thanks to a poorly timed Summer cold.

And while New Years is not what it used to be it's nice to take some time to farewell the previous year and look ahead to the coming year with hope and resolutions in place.

2010 is set to be a fantastic year for us both personally and professionally here at Bubs About Town so stay tuned for some new additions to the site and more fantastic articles, product reviews, book review, recipes, dining out information and so much more!

Caves Beach Hotel - family friendly plus!

This week some friends and I had one of our regular girls nights out, each time we get together we try out somewhere new and this week we set off to Caves Beach Hotel.

Our first impression was WOW!  From the amazing kids area with a fully fenced and shaded pirate ship playground and indoor toys to the hand dryers in the bathroom that actually work!  Oh and the food was pretty good too!  With a choice of either a formal restaurant or a bistro with the menu including from pasta, seafood, burgers and pizzas as well as a kids choice menu.

It was a shame that the weather wasn't great the night we went as we didn't get to take advantage of the huge deck overlooking the beach but we can't wait to head back with the kids on the next sunny weekend!
