Sorry about that. I haven't even managed a collage or a dot point post on what we did over the Christmas period.
We had fun. We went back to the beach for another week in another gorgeous house. We surfed, we swam, we ate good food, enjoyed the company of great friends, had a few drinks and shared some laughs.
We had our second annual barefoot bowls tournament, got attacked by plovers, introduced a new generation to the Spice Girls, listened to music and created memories.
It was so nice to get away (even though I didn't leave behind work) and just be in the moment without having to think about what was happening next.
And when we got home, the weather was so lovely, we spent another week in the pool. I forgot I wasn't actually on holidays and found myself avoiding work. Great for the soul, not so great for the pay packet.
We've had sleep overs, play dates, coffee dates, BBQs, daddy/daughter dates and some impromptu dinner dates.
All in all the first couple of weeks of the year have been pretty bloody good - just don't count my grumpy days - and although it already feels like it's zooming past, I'm looking forward to 2013 and all it has in store for us.
It's going to be a cracker!!!
