I went to the beach last weekend for a three day weekend with all my extended family. Parents, brothers, sister, sister in laws, brother in law, husband, children, and sons girlfriend. Phew, I'm exhausted before I've even started!
Anyhoo, we went down to a gorgeous beach in Northern NSW, and all stayed in the one resort. I took the Monday off work, as did most of the rest of the family, so it was three sun drenched days of relaxation, fun, and lots of kayaking. I don't think I've mentioned my love of kayaking in the blog before, mainly because its pretty much been cold or dreadful weather since I started blogging, so I've not done much of it!!
My Dad has a two person kayak, all my brothers have kayaks, and last year my delightful husband bought me one for my birthday.
So we had lots of kayaking this weekend, it was lovely. However I have absolutely no photos of said kayaking, as I always fear I will fall in and wet the camera.
And given my propensity for falling in the water, its quite feasible I would lose the camera.
However I did take lots of pics of rockpools, sand and the like, which you may have noticed......... if you look very carefully
It was a lovely weekend, where I thoroughly enjoyed everyones company. Sure, there were moments where I wanted to stab either myself or someone else in the eye with a fork, but those were few and far between.
So, on to blankets, I have finished more of the never ending baby blankets. I also made a flowery bunting decoration for a baby's bed, which turned out OK.
Here are a few of them bundled up together with the bunting.
I decided to personalise one of them, and made this card to go with the blanket.
On to the last B, it was my birthday this week, which was really really awesome!
I love birthdays, and this year was one of the best. I got great books, and a new turtle from my lovely kids!!!
I had to work on my birthday, since I'd had the Monday off, but the beauty of working was that I scored a surprise Princess birthday cake, complete with unicorns, princesses and castles!
Have a lovely weekend
