3 Days in Paradise


Last week we had a child-free 2 nights near the beach in an amazing B&B. Of course having this pool and spa to ourselves was pretty hard to take, as was sitting on the outdoor lounge chairs reading countless copies of Life etc. that were provided, while eating the cheese, fruit and crackers we found in our fridge on returning from a stroll through Avalon shops. Yes, it was all pretty hard to take ;-)
We were just a few minutes walk away from Careel Bay...
... where we met some geese
We visited the beach, although it was not beach weather...


... and found some great items in an op shop (for another post). Breakfasts were amazing, whatever we wanted from a long list, we had about 4 courses each and spent the rest of the day recovering. Upon waking we swam and then had our breakfast table laid by the pool, and delicious food served to us as we sat in bathrobes - luxury!



This was another treat provided by our hostess, completely unexpected and delicious for our afternoon tea:


Yes it was all pretty hard to take ...


On another note, today I went to my first ever Stampin' Up party and am looking forward to using the products I have ordered.

And I actually got out my tin whistle and played it at last. We have been playing a bit of recorder and piano the last few days, it is nice to feel musical again. Even though it feels like in the holidays we should had "so much time" to do things like make music (or tidy the house LOL) in actual fact we have been quite busy the last two weeks - after our initial post-Christmas vegetative phase. Well, I guess it would be true to say that we were flat out for 3 days last week at the beach ...
Just one full week left of the summer holidays now, a bit quieter but then mid-next week back into it all ... sigh.
