And with weather warming up and it being festival season there's so much to love about life at this time of year.
There's also so much to do and to be honest the thing I dream of doing most is nothing - and lots of it.
I want to lie by the pool or stare out to sea or read a book. I want to escape to the beach.
Today the best I could do was South Bank beach and as inner city facilities go it's a smoking hot place Brisbane has.
It's no wonder the place was teeming with families enjoying the school holiday sunshine today.
But it's not the same as the vast expanses of beach on Queensland's coast and if all goes to plan this time next week that's exactly where I'll be.
And that will be something to make a big splash about.
Watch this space.
