From the Sun to the Snow!

We recently had a short family holiday at the snow. Our brood with my Sister & Brother-in-law's and my wonderful Mother & Father in-law. It was a full house with plenty of energy!! As the Mother of 3 girls, boys are always a bit of shock to my system. My Sister-in-law has 2 boys that are really good kids, but they are like mud magnets and never stop!! It was a great couple of days, here are some pictures from our break...

The front valley at Perisher from the chair lift.

I really enjoy skiing but it takes alot of mental concentration for me to remain upright!Here is Ad with our eldest daughter..

Schnapps around the fire.
The kids loved having this fire and running around in the dark...It really is the simple things.

The beautiful Pender Lea Chalets

I love this landscape, when I see this image this is what I start to think;

'I love a sunburnt country
a land of sweeping plains
Of rugged mountain ranges
of drought and flooding rains'

Bali Love

After a bumpy start to the year, I am back. We have not long returned from Bali and I feel a little re-energised.

This was my first trip to Bali, and it was just stunning. Not classically beautiful, but a beauty no less. The relaxed lifestyle (such are holidays!), the warm days and nights, the cocktails and the water..............Hope you enjoy my trip as much as I did

I have been a little distracted

My distraction and our local

Summer hol's are over, children back at school or in my case - my babies just starting school, my big girl in her second year at high school!!

Where does the time go? The beach and some really hot weather have kept me away from blogland......returning soon.......
