But First, The Highlights.....

Today, we came back from our annual Summer Holidays Down De Islands Extravaganza. It was great! I read five books! FIVE, While lolling in the shade. Good friends visited. We kayaked. Russell won "Best Supporting Actor" in a move that will go down in family history. Diana and Kelly and I solved all of the problems of the world and ought to be hired to straighten it all out. We drank plenty of wine, because people kept on bringing us bottles, and we ate masses of fresh just-caught fish. Photos, book reviews and details to come! 

Tomorrow, Chas is heading into the bush for five days, to be an actual real-life rainforest research assistant, to count bugs. He is wild with excitement! This is so incredibly up his alley. 

Sam and Max are going to Tobago in the morning to snorkel with their grandparents for three days. Lucky boys! Tomorrow is also Sam's birthday! 

So you can probably picture the crazy unpacking, laundering and repacking of various smelly wet clothes, the speed-shopping at the grocery, the driving up and down, and the hurting of my feet right now. I seriously need a shower and a bed, and so, without further ado, I bid you goodnight!

How lucky those boys are - to be going snorkeling with Rory and Bunty. And Chas - out in the bush for days to do REAL science. You are so lucky - your boys are amazing. And Happy Birthday, Sam. Have a VERY Happy Birthday. So - okay now - Nan, close your eyes - feel me rubbing your feet.

Now go play.
