I'm Baaaaaack........

Well technically I've been back for a couple of days, but it has taken me a bit of time to sort through photos, washing, emails and other assorted things that pile up while you are away for a while. I feel so fresh after our holiday, seven nights at Palm Beach, with daily walks, afternoon sleeps, and evening drinkies - ahhh that's the life. The beach just can't be beaten in the relaxation stakes! The kids had an absolute ball and would collapse into their beds each night happily exhausted. I really miss the sounds of the sea and the cool breezes *sigh* - but it gives us something to look forward to next year!

Sorry, I'm a bit lazy today - I'm combining my Project 365 with sharing holiday snaps, so here we go .......

So there you have it, our holiday in brief! There are heaps more photos, I think that I took around 680! You will, therefore forgive me for not taking many photos since I got back then LOL. Due to photo exhaustion, my project 365 is having a short hiatus - until tomorrow when the kids go back to school LOL. Frankly, at the moment, all I have to photograph is the massive bruise on my thigh from the kitchen knife stabbing incident and none of you want to see that LMAO!

OH and before I go I just wanted to say that I was thrilled to be picked as the Member Spotlight over at DID! So if you would like to read a bit more about me and see some of my LOs spotlighted head over to the DID blog! Thanks for picking me - I don't deserve it *blush*.

Anyway, I have a bit to do today because I have to finish getting the kids ready for school tomorrow so I had better sign off for now. So ta ta from me!

Oh Amanda!!!!! Your pictures are superb, I especially like the sunrise one. And you must must must scrap the one of your family. It's brilliant. You all look just so happy and relaxed.

Heather said...

Welcome home! I *love* the photo of the family on the beach, I'm a sucker for beach photos (but tend to fear bringing my good camera to the beach ;-))

Cheryl said...

Well my personal faves would have to be Jan 22 and 26 but then I am a sucker for stormy moody seascapes!

Love the family shot too, great to see you.

Oh and a big congrats for the spotlight, well deserved!

Love your photography and your spotlight story! YEP, the girls are right the family photo is really fabulous! Did you take that with a timer? or did someone take it for you? - my guess is tripod and timer! You are AMAZING, and I'm proud to be your digital buddy!!!!! HUGS - K
