Home Again ... SIGH!!

All good things must come to an end ... So they say, though it really doesn't seem fair! :0P My Beloved Geek Boy & I are back from our beachy weekend & had a wonderful time. It was fantastic to have three days of being warm after the nasty cold of last week & we took advantage of it ...


We took long walks along the fabulous Boardwalk that runs right around the bay ...


... Enjoyed dinner at our fave Italian restaurant ...


... Then needed to go for another walk to settle our delicious dinner! :0) And it wouldn't have been a true weekend away without a little shopping ...


OOPS! Would you look at that! Some fabric followed me home! Tee! Hee! Hee! Not sure what I'll do with this tasty lot, but a layer cake & meterage should give me enough to play with. :0) I also enjoyed a chat with Penny, who helped me liberate my new fabricky friends. :0P It occurred to me that my two favourite fabric shops are run by angels ... The Quilters Angel (A.K.A. My Home-Away-From-Home!) & The Patchwork Angel. :0) 

Of course there was also more yummy holiday food ...


AAAAAAAHHHHH! Breakfast with a view ... Mashed avo & poached eggs on sourdough ... In our jammies! ;0)


And fresh prawns from the fish market at the marina, served with crunchy Greek salad. And on our way home, a quick stop in Montville found us ...


... Enjoying DEEEEEEELICIOUS fresh scones with jam & cream. GB thought they were finger-lickin'-good! :0) And when we stopped for a leg stretch at a roadside camp site, we had a chat with one of the locals ...


... Mr Kookaburra, who clearly missed the "sits in an old gum tree" memo. :0P He let me get pretty close, but treated me with the disdain that all transitory interlopers deserve. :0) 


It was worth copping the cold shoulder from the wildlife to sample the views. Though I'm definitely not a camping gal (the only stars I sleep under are FIVE! :0) ) I can see this would be a great spot to spend Mr Kookaburra's decreed one night.

So ... We had a wonderful, relaxing few days & even though it's not coastal weather, we seem to have brought some slightly warmer weather back with us ... & it's nice to be back in our own bed with our own comfy lounge chairs ... I think we're getting old! Tee! Hee! Hee! The rest of this week sees us here at home for a staycation to try to catch up on some of the chores & home jobs that have gone begging during this last couple of very busy months. I'm hoping to make some good progress on my BOM design-in-progress & maybe even some sewing! SHOCK! GASP! :0) 

So ... What are you up to this week? I hope there's some creative time in your schedule & some time to relax & catch your breath. And I'm going to stay in holiday mode by making myself a cuppa. :0) Til next time ...

RELAXED BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

Glad you had a lovely time away Kris, and yes the Patchwork Angel is a fabulous place to visit. I also can vouch for the scones, jam and cream at Montville, it looks like that is the same place we visited back in May with friends from the UK.

Quite looking forward to seeing what your squirrel project will end up being. Don't make it too enticing though, I have plenty here to catch up on.

Isnt it amazing how just. Few days away somewhere nice recharges the batteries. Your weekend looked so good. The camping spot looks rather lovely. Seeing as we now camp in our 5 star van, and like quiet free camps, where is it? Enjoy playing with your new layer cake.
