Getting away from it all ....

Well lets try again, this blog post seems to have taken me ages to get sorted what with issues trying to upload photos etc.  It seems like ages since I have been to my little writing space (and as I type little one is shouting at me as she is bored as this has taken me far too long to do :-().  I had better be quick ....

We have been away to our little bolt hole in Mallorca (or Morca as little Sweetpea calls it).  It is a place in the hills away from all the hustle and bustle of life - no mains elec, no phones, no tv  - bliss.  It is nice to get away from all the electrical items that modern life brings us.

We went to the beach every day. 

We ate fresh sea food.

We watched the children grow in front of our very eyes.

I created new pretty things whilst watching the children play in the sea.  I even went in the sea myself this year :-o  Mr Sweetpea was rather shocked at how well I could swim - I usually hide under the trees sewing or looking after the children  :-)

I even found time to paint my nails !

We saw some amazing little creatures

Rock Mouse, Octopus, Angry Snail, Crab

The children kept themselves busy - most of the time :-)

Eldest Sweetpea is getting rather hormonal which did make some of the holiday testing.  After a real pep talk towards the end of it he calmed down a bit thank goodness.

Right I had better be off, little one is now starting to drive me very crazy and I have spent far too much time on this new blogger layout.  I will leave you with on my of my fav views - I do love hanging washing out in the sunshine.  Take care xxx
