I have become quite addicted to my travel cup this year and always take tea with me in the car. While getting in the car yesterday with arms fully laden, the wind knocked the car door into my upheld elbow which unfortunately was carrying my tea. Scalding hot tea proceeded to pour down the side of my neck.
The funny thing is it didn't hurt that much when it happened but I decided to grab the ice pack just in case. Thank god because by the time we met Mum and Dad it was excruciatingly painful.
I spent the entire lunch with the ice pack pressed to my neck and when that had died the lovely waiter at Elwood Beach House kept me supplied with ice.
Which brings me to my second reason for posting...What a great place the Elwood Beach House is when you have kids. We sat at a table by the window and were able to enjoy our lunch while E and B ran around in the playground. For those who haven't been there, the play ground is completely fenced in and provides hours of entertainment. All our meals were delicious and the wait staff were extremely helpful. My hot tip would be to park out in the street as the parking in the car park is expensive.
Definitely my pick this month for outings with kids
