it was completely and utterly blissful! we went to the lovely island of crete, right in the centre of the mediterranean sea. thank you jason for a wonderful week of swimming, sunbathing, eating five meals a day, silliness, heart to hearts, drawing pictures with suntan lotion, pitta bread and greek salad, freckles, finding stray cats to feed and pet, icecream, snorkelling, reading trashy books, and lots and lots of laughter :)
one of the nicest things was that we felt truely happy to come home at the end of the holiday to our little house by the big pond. we’re taking it as a sign that whilst it’s nice to get away, we’re pretty pleased with what we’ve got going on at home, too.
p.s. thank you mama for taking such good care of our little alfie whilst we were away. sorry that he gave you a panic attack by disappearing for an entire evening, and then eventually coming back with a baby mouse in his mouth. i am sure that it was a gift to show that he’d accepted you ;)
here is our holiday, in photographs…
