Good Friday to relax


Eyes open at 5:30 am. Tried to fall asleep again but it didn’t work. Finally at 6:30 I got out of bed and defrosted my shot to be taken a half hour later. 

I am chatting with the other morning person I know – Nikki. She makes me laugh every day. I took my shot all by myself and it didn’t even hurt. I am good……

Then it was time to try and rouse the crew. Peter packed the bags and everyone got up and ate some breakfast. We are headed to the summer house for Easter. The kids are not so gung ho because we don’t have internet there. But once we get here they enjoy the change of pace and adapt.

We took two cars because we had stuff to bring there and back for the London move.  I arrived about an hour after the others and we had a lite lunch before Peter and I headed into Gustavsberg to the outlets to get some new plates and bowls to take with us to London. They will match very nicely with our new kitchen there.

When we got back it was time to start a bonfire to burn up all the broken branches and scrap that we have accumulated in the last year. Peter’s dad even came over to assist with the fire. It is still burning after 6 hours. The property looks a lot better now. We weren’t the only ones on the island who had a fire going. My sister facetimed me and I got to see where she is enjoying her Easter Break.

I tried to rest but only managed a half hour before dinner. Dinner is always so cosy at this house. But then the inevitable food coma hits and everyone is tired. It must be all the fresh air out here.

My niece, Katelyn, facetimed me and I got to talk to the whole family. Awesome. The boys went out to try and get the outside fire going a little bit and we lit a fire in the indoor fireplace because it gets chilly in the evenings here. COSY.

Good to semi-relax this weekend. A change of routine and scenery. Just what I needed.

  3. How wonderful to be able to have a place where to relax and just go with the flow. No internet - bliss! wish there were more places where mobiles, lap tops and pads don't work. Have a wonderful time out there! xxx
