New Surroundings

Although it feels like we are still on a big holiday and lots of people have been staying with us. in fact we have had 14 different people staying with us for different periods of time - which has been lovely. We are getting used to our new surroundings and enjoying all the new things that are so different from living in Canberra. Of course the pool is the big draw card and has been getting lots of use. Zoe already had a bout of swimmers ear and had 10 days no swimming. It is all splashing and underwater today!!
A Bali Hut that is a little haven for reading and kids giggling together in the hammock!
These bougainvillea flowers are so lovely - and they are growing in my garden. Frosts would have killed them in Canberra.
Palm leaves swaying in the breeze......aaah lovely!
The only sewing or crafting around here is a little crotchet repair job!

That pool would have been very welcome these past few days. I wouldn't even mind having to 'race' Shay and let her win....ha,ha.

No wonder you think you're off on holiday, your new house looks completely exotic and relaxing.

Your garden is beautiful .. and that hammock looks very inviting. I'd be kicking those giggling girls off and making some space for ME :)
