For the past week, the Matching Pegs family enjoyed one of the most relaxing holidays we have even had, (post kids). We stayed in a luxury cabin here, and the kids took advantage of every activity/facility on offer in the park. Every morning at 9am the kids disappeared for a while to enjoy some craft, while Luke and I sat and enjoyed a cuppa and each-others company. We had several forays to different beaches, and other local attractions, but mostly I was pretty passive, sitting and reading, or stitching additional diamonds to my “Wheel Of Fortune Quilt”, while watching the rest of my family in more active pursuits.
In the lead up to our departure, I had 3 days in bed with fevers and chills, brought about by tonsillitis, and while I felt a lot better by the time we departed, I was still very tired, so lolling about was just the recuperation that I needed. It was an added bonus that the bed in our cabin was the best I have ever slept in, away from home.
Prior to the holiday, while I was huddled in bed, I missed a long anticipated event, the “Lego Brickvention“. The rest of the family (and my BIL who used my ticket) went along, and Rory took over 400 photos to share the event with me.
I was most impressed with the Lego replica of the Erickson S-64 Air-Crane helicopter,(Helitanker) nicknamed “Elvis” which is used to fight fires, (water-bombing) each fire season here in Victoria, and for obvious reasons is held in great affection by the people who live here.
At the end of this week, the kids start the school year. This week will be taken up with getting-ready-for-school activities, and next week I will return to my usual crafting adventures.
Do you ever sew on the beach, or am I the only one to combine such diverse activities?
