... and routine. Being without wifi for nine days is no bad thing. I had my phone to get my little mini fixes of contact with the wider world. Otherwise, I relaxed, spent a great deal of time in the pool, walked lots and watched my girls have a brilliant time.
We've done one of our trips to Center Parcs. There has been a lot of time in the swimming complex.
|There are not, and will never be, and photos of me in a swimsuit. Just saying!|
Otherwise, there was some lovely relaxing evenings sat by the log fire watching dvds, some nice food, and lots of laughter. Just what a holiday is supposed to be about.
We had this weekend at my mum's 'up north' and did our habitual visit to the Tynemouth Market yesterday. I really wanted the item on the left - a cabinet from an old haberdashery shop. Though as I had neither the £175 being asked for it, nor the space in the car to bring it back home I had to indulge in a small piece of porcelain instead.
Finally, there was a wee bit of hand sewing done on the Oakshotts mini quilt. And I found some inspiration in Helen's school book while I was sorting things out once we were back home. Need to figure out how to turn this in to a quilt!
Normal service has returned to our household. We got home this afternoon and I have done laundry, cooked dinner, done the ironing, and unpacked all our crap. Life goes on.
