We were away in spa country this weekend. Every year we have a weekend away with all of Geoff's family and this year it was our turn to organise.
It is not so simple to find a house to accommodate 14, with a minimum of 6 bedrooms, in a price range that isn't absurd, so this one is a good one to keep in mind if you need to. The photos don't do the property justice, it had huge living areas, a fantastic long dining table that seated 16, great kitchen and really, really cosy.
Leila managed to lock herself in her bedroom and with all the talking in the world the poor little thing just could not manage the snib in the handle. She kept it together pretty well, although this mama was getting increasingly panicked. One of her dear uncles (a tradie in another life) took off the door frame and the handle and got her out - all with a butter knife I might add!
On the way home some of us went to Hanging Rock and climbed to the top. I love the photo in this post as the girls were a little panicked as a wall of black rain was starting to engulf us. After I pointed out that it is only water after all and wasn't it exciting, a second photo was captured.
A lovely weekend with my lovely "other" family.
