It seems forever since I went away and it is so good to be back home again even though the weather has been bleak and awful since my return. Holidays are nice but being back among my own "stuff" makes life so much simpler. I did not even turn on the computer for 3 days and retreated to the couch under a doona to watch the Olympics.
We did get to build sandcastles and had walks on the beach. The weather was not kind enough for swimming though although we did have some nice sunny days.
Late one afternoon the girls had a lot of fun with their father building sandcastles. It is lovely to see them all so happy together.
On the girls last day we had one last walk down to the beach where we again dug a moat round the sandcastle and had fun trying to rescue it from the surf.
Even the seagulls got into the act.
During the week I took the girls to see the Katy Perry movie, which they enjoyed, and there were walks down to the shops, where Georgia scored some new clothes...purple jeans and a haircut which she was so happy with.
It was all so busy, the time flew by and before we knew, it was time for the girls to return home. Very sad for their father as he misses them a lot.
I don't know how they found us on the 22nd floor, but every morning for a few days we had these visitors coming for breakfast of apple and honey
We were even treated to the antics of some playful whales out in the ocean that was so exciting to see.
Now I really must concentrate on catching up with my Tast Stitches so I promise some photos of the results soon.
