Golly GOSH is it ever good to be on holidays. To forget what the day of the week is, to only think of time in meals and what you need to get to make them happen. To swim for hours at a time. To have a nap in the hot afternoons. To see kids happy. To see kids with OTHER adults to hang out with. To eat well, often. Drink often, and do it well. To spend time with people who you love.

The gay godfathers are leaving this morning, and my sister and her husband staying one more night. We have eaten SO well – cooking for 11 people each night has meant thinking BIG. I’ve done 3 roast chooks with salads (including this one) one night, pulled pork tacos with coleslaw & tortillas another night, and last night the world’s biggest (and possibly best) lasagne. Lunch has been ham, more ham and prawns – breakfasts more and more of this delicious summer stone fruits.  I’ve been reading. I’ve been sleeping well. And I’m feeling very good indeed.

I hope your holidays are treating you well too x
