Ohh dear

Sorry the blog has been a bit neglected- not sure that anyone reads any more though.
Work took up most of last year and the start of this year. I was on my own while my boss was battling with cancer - difficult times. I am SO happy to say that she came back to work after Easter and is continuing to go from strength to strength. I am relaxing a bit more too.
We ( my family and I ) took a two week holiday - the first proper holiday - with out visiting other family, for about 10 years.
We spent a week in Gorgeous Cornwall and a week in Devon.
There were (of course) a few problems - mostly around Megs diabetes. No matter how much you plan ( and I could be in the military with my planning!!) things still go wrong. All were resolved.
Anyway here's a few photos:

 This is the cottage we stayed in the first week - Westaway at Praa sands in Cornwall.
Its a 4 bedroom Dormer Bungalow with a view of the sea from all rooms except the kitchen.

 Praa Sands.

 Dex and I got up at 6.30 and went for a walk on the beach every day that it didn't rain - We missed two or three days.


 We couldn't resist another visit to Trebah Gardens - I know there are loads of other gardens to visit in Cornwall but we just love this place!

 Poor Nats- I made her walk miles!

 Dan ran everywhere ( of course!) He got lost at one point  ekkk!

 My fav flowers.

 A whole valley of them.

 With a beach at the bottom.
 Meg resting - it was a very hot day.

 Meg and I at the house in Devon - Appleacre. A four bedroom house on a Farm , in the middle of no where. Gorgeous house but very limited wifi.

 You COULD get a patchy wifi from the patio.

 Loads of single track road in Devon - scary!

 We had to go to Dartmoor while in Devon - SO beautiful. The ponies came over to greet us and we got to stroke them.

Natalie insisted on it.

 Dan and Nats at Prince town Devon

 Megan's choice was a visit to Exmoore Zoo 

 I managed to capture a photo of a strange new species!

 We also went to Ilfracombe and paddled in the sea.

We have been back for almost two weeks now - have to say I would happily live at Praa Sands.....sigh.

Love soojay xx
