Friday is bought to you this week from Magic Beach! That’s not its real name, but we call it Magic Beach after a picture book the kids all love about a family that goes to the beach. It has become an annual event, filled with relaxation, reading, swimming and water fun, board games, good food, and my whole family. In. One. Small. House.
+ Unsurprisingly, our kids are in heaven at the moment. Long days spent swimming and playing with cousins. Pancake breakfasts. Desserts and ice-creams. Loads of attention from grandparents and the aunts and uncles. Next week is going to be quite the come down.
+ I have been reading quite a bit. Since finding out that I have a permanent job, and that we would be staying in the country, I have also spent time thinking and dreaming up ways to improve the farm house. Lack of storage, a colour scheme from the early 70’s, and a kitchen from the 1950’s are just some of the issues. Where to start?? I am not sure when any of these things will be fixed, but it is fun to dream!
