We had a perfect family morning walking the beach and just spending a lovely time together taking in the beautiful surroundings that this fabulous location has to offer. We really do live in a beautiful part of the world, and should make more of an effort to enjoy it.
Returning home, we ended up with the request for extra teenage boys to stay the night...Unusual ? No,
As is usual with teenagers these days (well mine anyway) the outdoors finally lost its glowing interest, and the boys returned to their beloved PlayStation. Its a sad but true fact, that my boys will only tolerate so much fresh air per day (am I the only one that has to push their teenage boys outside?)
Anyway it was their loss, and my gain. Since the fire was still roaring away, hubby and I decided to take advantage of the peace and quiet, and we settled down by the fire with a glass of wine and spent the night talking and generally enjoying each others company, this was very much needed and very welcomed by us both. It's not that often we get time alone, and lately the stress of life has become a bit much, I think its time that we take a step back and return to the basics of life, its time to get of the roller coaster and slow things down, life is to short to do other wise.
That was our Saturday, a long but wonderful day, that we certainly need to repeat real soon...
Sunday morning bought the opportunity for me to escape the house, the kids and the general Sunday chores and head off to our River Front Coffee Club, who was holding another "Meet and Tweet" for Mackay Tweeters. This time hubby joined me for the meet and greet, but I think he is still none the wiser about how twitter works....lol
