~ mornings at the beach:  we've discovered Lego is a sea-dog and will swim out far beyond her comfort zone to follow her beloveds. Us.

~ planning, preparing and eating simple and delicious meals in our new kitchen: most menus including something braai-ed on our new patio

~ playing with Christmas presents: hers

... and mine

~ lots of small, mostly fun, house-related projects: little pockets of productivity

~ afternoon tickle fests on our bed: her delight in having both parents to play with, simultaneously and endlessly

~ avoiding the world: sneaking out for small supply runs only when necessary. Nesting in summer.

~ listening to her singing along to the bizarre play-list in her head: I Heard it Through the Grapevine, Lady in Red, Hey Jude ... what have we done?

~ enjoying sleeping in: the aftermath of the German Measles has her sleeping 'til 8.30/9 most mornings, so naturally so are we ...

~ making No Plans: the best kind of plan in the world

Sponds like bliss ... we've had a similar kind of holiday. Sleeping late. Long breakfasts. Napping. Fires and candles.

Will be a shock when I have to go back to work.
