Back to Basics.

We went to the lakehouse for one night this weekend and took 2 cousins with us. We left in glorious sunshine and arrived in a storm. Some friends had taken refuge on our verandah there as they had come around on their boat. They had arrived before us and had tried to leave us a mesage, inviting us to dinner..... It was nice to arrive and see them there.


As the main house is having a bathroom renovation, we had 10 children and 3 adults in the nook above the boat shed, enjoying coffee, milo, choc chip cookies, chocolate and apples. Card games were quickly started. Then, as fast as it had come, the storm left and there was sunshine. The children kayacked and swam. It was a lovely escape and felt like a holiday, even though it was only one night.

Sounds like you had a wonderful, albeit brief, getaway - sometimes it's just what a person needs !
