Down My way Down Under
Mon 24th, Sep, 2012
Well hello there Beach Cottage friends, if you want some coastal loving today, come on down.
We have had a beautiful weekend here on the beaches…if this is Spring, well I am liking it very much thank-you-very-much.
We headed to the beach both days, along with quite a few visitors, our little town was busy with people on day trips and on holiday looking for some sunshine and doing some sunbaking…
I love it when the local lifesavers are back on the beach….that means the beginning of warm and Summer being on the way to me…the lifesavers in this old cottage (that would not be me, I am such a pommie, I like to swim with my head out like the Queen and have more chance of needing to be rescued than being a rescuer) have been fishing out their red and yellow caps and are all ready to hit the beach for patrol in the next few weeks.
I salute them for their effort.
Errrrm there is a leetle bit of concern for me with the onset Summer…one is thinking one’s wobbly and white bits are a tad more white and wobbly than one would like…I am totally blaming the new baby in our old cottage…that KitchenAid is responsible for the making of cakes, the making of muffins, the making of breads that have, I do believe, made themselves visible right on my outer thighs and upper arms.
Note to self : buy a wrap.
So it’s the school holidays here…if you are reading from outside Australia, this is the Spring holiday, we were meant to be going overseas, this time last year we were in Hong Kong, but unfortunately we didn’t have anyone to look after our little friend Barls, and so in the end we decided to stay here….we still have things on this week but next week we are cooking up some plans to get out and explore…for me it’s long days on the beach with a book and finding some new places in Sydney…the kiddos had other ideas including water parks (dear Lord please tell me soon my days of attending water parks and pretending I like flying down ramps with my kiddos are soon to be over), multi-screen cinemas and candyfloss and….wait for it…paintballing…
…and ahem talking of painting….I have a few things to get painted…armoire news : getting there, vintage dresser news : not even started yet
That’s it from me for today, I am off to enjoy the holidays with the Beach Cottage Crew….I may not be around here as much…but without schedules and stuff I may be here more…
So be seeing you
p.s. I loveeeeee this shot of the chairs xx
