Back again


Back from our mountain retreat and I'm missing this view so much.
I wasn't as active as the rest of the fam (a bit unwell) but I did get a lot of crochet and 
embroidery done in the perfect silence broken only by the occasional whip bird.
I went on some safe walks in the rainforest...


The girls had a few turns on the Flying Fox (you might also know it as a Zip-line) 
sailing 180m down the hill, 25m above ground...


... found hidden pools and waterfalls...


I found a new crazy bark to add to my collection... isn't it amazing? 
It was like a beehive honeycomb structure...


... and on the last day it rained and rained, which was kind of nice too :)


If you're on holidays too, I hope it's been a restful and happy one :)

Your mountain retreat looks wonderful. I am glad you and the girls had a good time. I got back on Sunday from a week in Sydney, and while it was not a holiday per say, it was great to get out of my normal routine. Happy Easter.

Oh, yum. Even the rain bit. Maybe especially the rain bit (even more conducive to the crochet business).

Yay for holidays, but sorry to hear you were a bit unwell. Hope you've come back feeling relaxed and recharged by your time away though. That bark is strange indeed. Great find. :)

Dear Kylie,
Welcome back! You were missed.
I received my GORGEOUS collar in the mail and was thrilled and delighted. It is beautiful and a wonderful addition to my collection of collars.
I hope you are feeling better.
