Today is a miraculous day, or perhaps the week is?

I stepped onto the sand today for the first time in forever. It felt soooo good. It felt good for many reasons:

  1. Because I was feeling the best I’ve felt since October
  2. My bowel felt like it might behave itself enough to allow me to leave the toilet bowl for a moment
  3. A wise soul advised me to earth myself simply by placing my bare feet on the ground
  4. It is the most glorious day ever
  5. And as dear friend Cazz, AKA Spinhead said, ‘even if it’s to sit quietly in a beautiful spot’, go and enjoy the day. Enjoy I did.

If only I could bring myself to do botox!

The week couldn’t help but get off to a good start with m’blister and her bloke paying us a fleeting visit (from Sydders) at the weekend. We dined with them and the folks on Saturday night and Sunday lunch which was quite a bit of socialising for a squatter host, however my regular Sunday arvo session with Chez and her cranio sacral magic put me into the usual state of deep relaxation and rejuvenation. And then to top that off, our forever generous neighbour Pam, delivered ‘meals on heels’ for Sunday nights dinner making both M and I very grateful humble happy campers. She did the same last week and on both occasions completed the menu with a dessert and cream turning me into blubbering mess with her kindness and consideration. Amazing and delicious. Thousands of thank you’s are smothering you Miss Pam.

Clock wise from left: Veggie lasagne, Salad with dressing, banana cake, cream, baked spuds complete with butter (incase we were still hungry!) and apple crumble. Overwhelm or what?
Pam’s Meals on Heels part 2: Roast veggies and cheesey lentil bake with mushroom sauce and a raw chocolate tart with strawberries and almonds. Unbelievable.

    1. Hey there Mandy, I thought you’d recognise that beach. It’s not looking quite like the pic at the mo though, everything is still a bit grim up this way. Ta for the massive writing compliments, thats really saying something coming from you – you’ve put a spring in my step xx

  8. Hey Prue a beach like that will do wonders to reinvigorate the soul, it sounds like it was just what was needed and ‘Saint’ Pam what a legend
