Just a few words about today, as this was our much needed chill out day, in Paradise Ridge, where we all got to get up when we wanted, and did what we wanted all day! I made the most of the sun lounger on the upper decking, which was bliss. There was a strong breeze, which was really welcome as it was so hot. I ended up with alternating between lying out with my book, and lying inside with my book. All day long….bliss! The kids watched some tv, for the first time in weeks, and read. Lyn chillaxed, sometimes with his laptop, sometimes with his camera, and other times with his book. Oh, and he did make us all pancakes for breakfast!

The day continued in this heavenly way, until I went to the laundry room to put the wet washing in the tumble dryer, only to find the laundry room was under water! There had been a drain blockage on the water purification system. Two phone calls to Tom, and the kids went in the hot tub, while Lyn and I waited for Tom to come over, again! Plumber alert for tomorrow!

We joined the kids in the hot tub, where tonight's topic of conversation was whether Tegz could/would/should/will get into an American University. We finished off with card games, where I taught them how to play Beanie. Memories of playing this in a tent with Gramma T! (I won!)

Off to bed then, where I had the best night’s sleep so far here. Maybe the bottle of wine and 2 Mudslide’s did the trick!
