Holiday Snaps

For the past week we’ve been on holiday at my MIL’s. It was good to get away. I really needed the break, as did Hubby and the kids. I didn’t miss my computer for writing or editing aspects at all, and I was able to contact my best buds via email whenever we were in towns (the Internet connection disappeared at MIL’s due to her being in a remote area). I realised I could quite happily live without my computer and anything to do with it. Sobering, but at the same time a relief. In the past, the thought of not having a computer near me freaked me silly, but I’ve come to the conclusion that there is more to life than what appears on my monitor screen. I feel so much better for that knowledge.

Anyway, for those who are interested in what the UK looks like where we went, here are some pictures.

This is a figure made out of recycled stuff at a place we visited called The Eden Project. I thought of Faith and her books as soon as I saw it.

Taken while driving to the coast. I missed the more spectacular views by fannying about trying to get my camera out of my bag!

A stony beach. Picture taken on the only chilly evening. At one time I wouldn't have been able to get close to that wall and take the picture because the sea has always freaked me stupid. I'm slowly getting over my many insane phobias, and this time I even managed to pet a horse without too much of a problem (another phobia!).

Needs no explanation.

I love this picture. Taken around 9 p.m. My boys on the beach. I bought a picture frame for this one.
