i know y'all missed me soooo much!

andddddddd I AM BACK!

hello everyboddddyyyyyy!

sorry for the unplanned hiatus that's been going on around here ...
my mum and i travelled about 17 hours north to help care for my nan after a hip replacement, for the last 20 days...
i assumed i would have found wi-fi somewhere out there, but alas, no luck (not even with maccas free wi-fi!).

whilst caring for nan we also found a little time to holiday and play tourist around the gold coast and tweed areas...
my aunty, uncle and two cousins live close by to nan so we were able to meet up with them for a couple of adventures...
including; my first ever high tea, my first ever paddle boarding experience, a thrilling viewing of the aussie movie "bait", a hilarious cinema experience to see "pitch perfect" (my second viewing of the awesome movie!) and generally catching up and goofing around.

 silly photos in the elevator.


 seafoooooood and eat it!

 on a walk with mum :)

i felt a little like maggie from the book/movie "in her shoes" whilst staying with nan, as mum and i spent our afternoons in the retirement village pool, meeting all the residents and pretending we were holidaying in some ritzy resort.

as much i enjoyed catching up with the family and the sunshiney swimming weather...
i was more than ready to head back home...
and im so happy to be settling back in now and starting to form a new routine now that i live back at home.

ok, im off to catch up on all i've missed in blog land throughout january!


right before my aunty spotted a HUGE stingray about 1 metre away from us :/

P.S>>> i influenced my cousin to start a blog!
check it out and leave a comment to welcome her to the bloggy community...

WELCOME BACK! I figured you were off gallivanting and having fun! Sounds like on top of that, you were being a wonderful family member. Kudos to you for going and helping. I like the "In Her Shoes" reference- that makes it all sound very exciting. And my Sister said "Pitch Perfect" is AMAZING, but I have yet to see it. I should!! Love the photos (new camera, yay!) and all of the family shots. Glad you're back!

Hope your grandmother is ok.. I think loving at a retirement village for a few weeks would be kind of fun.. And you can't complain about the weather there ( my cousins used to tuna hotel in tweed and love on the GC so we've spent a lot of time there). Hope you're settling back into life at home! Glad your back on the blogosphere!
