A few days spent (Internet and cell phone free!) at our bach at Karekare beacon Auckland's West Coast. Just a 40 minute drive from home , but another world. I wore travel sickness bracelets to try and stop the car sickness and I drove too. ( I even drove back to Henderson to go to the Knit World wool sale and spent a nice sum of money on LOTS of wool!).
Days spent at the Bach reading (Michael Morpurgo's biography - loved it!!!), finishing a pair of socks for Kieran who is delighted, knitting many many dishcloths - I love a new pattern , and starting a summer cross stitch. And watching kids read, play board games and build meccano models.
A few visit to the beach in rough surf, always swimming between the flags and also a couple of night walks.
I feel refreshed and as if I have had a good holiday!
