[Credits: frame from When Lena Smiles by creashens. Font: CK Classic, Arial.] It’s good. It’s very relaxing. It’s something we all enjoy doing. This year we enjoyed Christmas holidays at the beach. We stayed in a unit on the fourth floor overlooking the beach and I can literally sit on the lounge and watch my […]

happy birthday …

Our boy turned a year older today, and payday came early. He has been working hard the last few weeks to earn enough to buy a Wii, and we surprised him by buying it early for him. Talk about a workout!!! The Wii came with Wii Sports, which I find enormously entertaining. I just sit […]

high tea …

We had our ‘high tea’ break-up at school this week, catered for by my favourite cook, Megan. The side benefits to being her friend include being chief dessert tester/taster (I haven’t met one of her desserts I didn’t like!) and photographer for her goodies, and it’s a job I don’t take lightly. She really does know how […]

in loving memory …

In loving memory of Elaine, my beautiful aunt, who died unexpectedly at the end of last week. We laid her to rest in a beautiful lawn cemetery today. This is one of the flowers that graced her casket. Gone, but never forgotten. You live on in our hearts, Elaine!
