Our boy has been playing footy on every weekend all season, so we haven't had a chance to get away. My parents live on the coast, so I rang them and invited myself down for the weekend. I took my daughter along, while 'the boys' stayed home.
We had such a lovely break - the weather was perfect, and spring had arrived in Mum & Dad's garden. Freesias, violets, lemons and the start of the jasmine made for a delicious cocktail for the nose. And green, green grass, where we've still got yellow here. Lovely.
Hopeful of spotting some whales, we took a drive out to Point Perpendicular. No whales, but gorgeous views.
Dropping in on Honeymoon Bay, it seemed warm enough to swim.
And when I got home, I found some miniature daffodils flowering in our garden, and the sun was shining.
We're making plans; spring's on the way.
