Longing

Last weekend saw me and four spectacular women head down to Longbeach for a girls weekend.


It was pretty hard work.


We had dinner in the Bay on Friday night


then headed back to our humble accomodation...



On Saturday brunched in the Bay and gathered supplies so we had no further need to leave our house.



The other four went for a run and a swim. I did not (see post on aversion to sand).



Our mobile masseuse came to the house and massaged us in turn (for 7 hours!!).



Then we sat and read and talked and knitted and slept and listened to the beach and music and had facials and did our nails and ate and drank and generally relaxed.



It was wonderful. We didn't have to do any parenting, or nagging, or warning or disciplining. We didn't use the TV or the internet (although the phones were a must so we could hear how the boys faired without us).


It was a perfect weekend. And I'm already longing for the next one...

Sounds blissful ... and I have to say you did look at least 10 years younger when you came back! Not too sure whether that was the facial or the relaxation!

Oh goodness me, what a terrible ordeal, how hard for you!

I LOVE the sound of this weekend, how utterly refreshing... I do hope that one day I can find the friends, time and place to do something similar.

I feel a little bit vicariously rested just looking at your gorgeous photos. (and ok, a little jealous). I love the swimming picture!

Oh my God you went to paradise! Your friends must have been so excited by that that they couldnt help but do all that running and exercise, no other way to explain it...
