A little break in transmission!

It has been a busy school holidays with lots of projects on the go.

I have many, many things to show you and won't attempt to do it all in one post.

For now I will leave you with a few photos from our very relaxing holiday last week.

We went to one of my favourite places in the world.

Boroka Lookout - The Grampians

This was our house.

Loving that! As soon as I saw the forst landscape I knew where you were - many lovely memories of childhood holidays came flooding back. Added another one to the list of places to take my children at Christmas. Thanks :-)

Looks like you had a ball. It was great to have a mini catch up- meet your lovely girls and your very patient Mr Lululollylegs.

Thimbleanna said...

Oh Louise -- that scenery is stunning! Although, I must say, that pic of your family on that balcony makes my afraid of heights side a bit nervous!

Chloe said...

I've just found your blog via Ricrac and I chose to click on it because I love the name :)
Your break looked like great fun and your visitor was pretty cool too!
The surroundings look like something from a film!

Cathy said...

Looks like you had a fantastic time! What a beautiful place. The girls look so very happy. Good to have you back all the same!

Lindsay said...

Lucky you, what a fantastic holiday!

Louise I just wanted to post that I didn't ever receive your apron, in case you did send and think me rude not to respond! If you haven't thats great as it means none of your lovely work has gone missing, I just really didn't want you to think how awful she hasn't gotten back to thank me.
