Halcyon days

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.................................... and let them unroll before us as the summer holidays commence.
Magical days that span Kent, Devon and Cornwall...filled with beach barbies, rock pools, pub lunches, castles, boats, ice-cream, fish and chips, Grandmas, Grandpas, flowers, oh and sand in absoloutley everything!

We do seem to have crammed quite a lot in!

and now they are gone
home to Melbourne
my faraways
(brother, sil and babies)

and I shall ache for them

thank you all for your lovely lovely holiday wishes
I look forward to reading about all your summer adventures
and to my new followers, "hello" so good to meet you, thanks for stepping down the Lane.

  10. How, how, how have I missed the last three posts??? I do, however, feel like I've just won the lottery. I've enjoyed looking at all of your lovely photos. I zoomed right in and went back and forth. Now, I have images of sunny and fair children, stained glass windows, castles, rooftops, geraniums (oooo, I'm inspired!),oh, and all sorts of things - happy faces!

    Thanks for sharing it all!

  15. Sarah, your place is always such a pleasure to visit, and you can almost smell the lovely English summer air from here!
    It's always a bit sad when the family leaves, but happy memories stay. Looks like you crammed heaps in. Love your current blog header.

  17. Welcome back : )
    I know just the achey
    feeling that you talk
    about. It IS so hard
    to be a great distance
    from loved ones, especially
    after you have had such
    special moments, together!
    I am LOVING those gorgeous
    English blooms in all of
    your pics and especially
    the wee garden in the
    first collage ~ HEAVENLY!
