Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
Our little family escaped to the beach on the Sunshine Coast for the Christmas holiday this year. We loaded the car and headed north for the two hour drive, what a great time we had.
There was sun, salt, sand and sunscreen, swimming in the pool and at the beach, kayaking, bike riding, sunset walks, fish and chips, cold chicken and salads, sweet things to eat, summer fruits...and of course Santa found the boys and their new mummy made Santa sacks.
I think Mum and Dad might have liked a little more downtime on their holiday, but in a way it was nice to be physically exhausted at the end of the day and then have very little to do but enjoy the evening breezes and sea scent. Technology was turned off, even the mobiles ran flat.
The little boy dipped his toes in the ocean for the first time, and the big boy honed his body boarding skills. For a kid that once was afraid of the waves at the beach we now can't get him out of the water!
Thanks for sticking around and reading and leaving your comments and kind words over 2012. I've been less present in this space than I would have liked to be, I've done less sewing than I would have liked to as well, but I hope it's just a stage that will pass. I'm looking forward to 2013 and all that it may bring!
