We eagerly anticipated our last-hurrah few days away at the beach before returning to school routines, to indulge in some ‘holiday’ at the end of a month that had felt anything but relaxing. As the date of departure approached and we were in hospital with Sam, who’d been admitted with fevers, we wondered whether we’d make it at all. But we did, although a day later than planned, and it was lovely to have some quality time swimming in the pool, playing at the park, indulging in fish and chips and digging our feet into the sand. While it started off a little rainy, simply the change of scenery, being able to watch the sunset, breathe in the sea air and hear the birds as they busily chattered before bedtime was good for the soul.
You’d think in moments like these I would be great at getting the camera out and capturing the moment. But, no, a few iPhone photos and a lot more internal memories are all that remain…
charlie: Your cherubic face on my shoulder, with another one smiling behind it, as we took selfies whilst waiting in the carpark for Daddy and Sam to pick up the unit key. We had arrived safely in Caloundra, albeit a day late and after facing heavy rain as we travelled on the highway up the coast, and we were so excited to have finally made it to holidays. And as you looked at our reflection, you whispered sweetly into my ear, “Mummy, you have green laser beam eyes” 😉
nicholas: Such a big boy now, you approach any playground with gusto, loving to climb and face each challenge. You happily make friends and watch big kids and chat to passersby, but if anyone tries to move your big brother’s shoes, they’d better watch out – you are quick to ensure they are returned to their rightful owner 😉
The images from this week have been taken on the iPhone 6.
