We're back from a wonderful holiday away. We had perfect weather and lots of time to relax, read and shop. The male family members enjoyed the fishing and caught some huge snapper, lots of whiting and crabs. I spent the majority of time doing puzzles, reading books about raising a teenager and a book about losing weight! Hmmmm. New Year's resolution coming up. I only sketched one picture while I was away and I am hoping to paint it in the next week or so - I'll show you once I get started - it is called "New Beginnings". I finished this doodle, sorry the photo is blurry. Well, it doesn't seem like I was even away, it was back to work today, a day off tomorrow to get my Christmas grocery shopping and organising done, then back to work on Wednesday. The child care centre where I work closes down between Christmas and New Year and I won't have to go back to work until the 5th January, so it will be a nice break. My sister arrived from New Zealand a week ago, with her daughter, to live here, so we have been busy looking at houses on the internet and having nice long chats. They will live with us until they get settled here. I have some photos to show you - the view from where we were staying, my DH and one of the DS's with the fish they caught, my daughter with a joey she fed (the owners of the villas were fauna rescuers and looking after 2 joeys), one of the joeys - how cute is he!, and of course, my doodle.
