Aloha Beach Cottage ladies, aloha I believe is very topical at the moment as we are soon ready and raring to get on a jet plane to visit the Hawaiian islands…this has been on the bucket list of mr bc and I since we met and this year it’s happening. Yay. Just a little bit excited for the Pearl Harbour stuff.
Well, my long holiday and time off is sadly beginning to come to an end (other than the trip to Hawaii) and my new job is looming. Exciting, but I am beginning to wonder how I ever got out the door (in clothes not floral pjs and lets not even think how I ever got 3 children to school on time) before 10 am. I mean there’s coffee to drink, tv show re-runs to watch, baths to soak in and books to write…eiderdowns to snuggle under, pooches to cuddle up with, chocolate cake (have new recipe, is fantabulous) and soup to make.
I’ve been totally vegging out on all of this…lovely long days of doing not much save walking to the library and lumping big baskets of books back up the hill (latest is Anzac Girls, loving), ambling along looking out at a Wintery ocean, finding a new (to me) coffee shop for lunch and slowly but surely sorting the house out (bedroom floor is now finished and just waiting to find a sink-in-able sofa for the new space created by moving bed under window -on insta if you wanna see).
It’s getting much chillier here on the beaches…Winter suddenly arrived and we’ve gone from no fire and t-shirts and jeans to all the rugs out, thick heavy layers on the beds, hot water bottles, throws all over the place and little dogs under quilts on the sofa…
Adios for now
