Wow, time really flies when your having fun!
Sorry I've been absent for so long, but when your out adventuring there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.
Firstly my mum came over for a week stay/play which was great. Reminded me how much we are missing our friends and family back home, but was nice to have her company and time to sit and chat and hang out while the kids were at school, and well the kids just thought it was 'the best'.
We did a little tour guiding for her, showing off some of the great spots we've discovered. drank coffees, ate cake, shopped, thrifted, sat by warm fires (although mum was still freezing) and enjoyed a wine or two!
Perfect way to spend a week I'd say.
Then as quickly as she arrived, she was gone and it was back to our routine of school, swimming, guides etc, but we had the very exciting holiday of SNOW to look forward to. The kids have never been skiing or anything close to skiing so the excitement was certainly building! We had sledges, snow boots and snow gear to buy, thermals to find, and that was just for the kids...see what I mean about 0 hours left.
Adventure time.......snow here we come!
We enjoyed blizzards, snow balls, sledge races, cousins to play with, hot chocolates, chocolate fish, late nights, thermal pools, wind storms, and most importantly the company of each other. I just love holidays for that reason.
Hoping to get back on track with the blogging and sharing of fun stuff, but till then I hope you enjoyed your holidays and are out there adventuring with those you love.
