Mountain holiday

We're back from a dreamy week away. It's always so restful...



So many amazing sunsets this time...




(This is really what it looked like! I haven't altered the photo at all.)


Chess, Scrabble, jigsaws (and lots of crocheting for me)....





Goanna encounters...



Looking up at incredible canopies...





And walks every day...



I guess that's the end of the holidays. We have to start getting ready for the 
new school year now. We have a week to cover school books and buy new 
school shoes etc... oh joy ;) 
Holidays always go so quickly, don't they? Hope yours are going well :)

We're just back from our camp and catching up. I'm exhausted!

Happy New Year!

Looks like you all had a great time and most importantly got to chill. Good for the soul. Happy New Year Kylie x

We haven't 'done' our holiday yet. And while something tells me it isn't going to tick many of the same R&R boxes as yours, I can't help but PRAY for a little!

I envy your crochet getaways Kylie! Love the school holidays too - so relaxed without all those school notes and endless requests coming home. We have nearly three weeks left here (hooray)- going down the coast next week and hope to take embroidery down with me. we'll see how that goes.....

I too am lamenting the end of the school holidays (sigh). Love the shots of the sky- sensational!

even the pics look relaxing!! what a lovely time away. those skies sigh. i miss skies like those. love the action goanna shot too. lizards are one of my favourite animals - they are so cool! gecko's are probably on the top of that list - i can't go past they cute little suction feet : )
