This breathtakingly beautiful island has unspoilt powdery white sand beaches, crystalline turquoise waters that wash over pristine coral reefs, and verdant green rainforest.
Scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking and sailing trips are available and you can discover the island's charms on foot (with or without Mellors the guide) by mountain bike or private island buggy.
For those in need of pampering the spa offers a selection of luxurious treatments to soothe and heal both body and soul.
For dining, enjoy a freshly prepared meal at the tearoom, a picnic on the beach, or a delicious dinner in the oceanfront restaurant with its stunning sea views. There is , and good company, everybody is welcome.
Mmmm, . Weekend was good. SB started melting down towards the end of yesterday -- too little sleep Friday night combined with long day Saturday and too much excitement led to one overly tired & emotional three year old. Still, a good day. We're not long home and I'm contemplating doing what SmallBoy is (sleeping). How was your weekend?
The aspidistra looks as though it likes it here too. I do like what the NMBs have done with the palm fronds. Its such a pity that its on the warm side and with all the work he's doing Mellors seems to have got a bit hot
JM, you should know that its always wine o'clock if you want it to be.
Breakfast would be lovely thanks. I think I'll have some fresh fruit salad with mangos and pineapple in, then a lovely crispy croissant (if I can get my hands on one before the NMBs run off with them all to try to beat them down into surf boards). And a nice pot of fresh tea too I think.
I have bitten the bullet and got a bike fitting appointment set up with Islabikes... DH was wondering whether it is worth it, given the extra cost, but I would prefer to get DS something that will really encourage him to do cycling (and be suitable for different options) rather than get one that will be OK but less easy.... And of course I would prefer to get something that would last longer and fit him for that bit longer too....
I think a properly fitted bike is a very good idea for anyone, adult or child. I remember struggling on an ex-boyfriend's mountain bike, and when I got my own, was shocked to find that I could fly up hills much easier.
So is 10 am a suitable time for wine o'clock? I feel like I need it intravenously, preferably.
Tea / Coffee for anyone else? I think hot buttered crumpets with honey would be a good option for a grey windy day.
DS doesn't have any school trousers to wear today. Coincidentally I spoke to his class teacher yesterday about the saga of the missing trousers - and commented that the pair he was currently wearing weren't his, and weren't named. However, that pair didn't come home with him either. And I'd mended them before noticing that they weren't his too!!! One pair didn't come home after karate last term. One pair got swapped last Monday after games. Both of his pairs are clearly named, with well sewn on labels. He's gone in home trousers that are roughly the right colour, but have pockets on the legs as its the best we could do.
It's grey and rainy here today, too. Has been all week. My mood, honestly, is in the toilet after a discussion with DH on Tuesday night. Sometimes there are hidden darknesses in a marriage that you never knew about, and when you find out, it leaves you going WTF?
I'm not in a good head space. I feel like I've so much on my plate, and more just got added, and I would love to be able to say that so much of me is busy with trying to keep with this upcoming surgery, whenever it ends up happening, and I would just like to be cut some bloody slack!! But I don't feel I can say that, nor would it help if I did.
Feeling profoundly depressed and lonely today. I show weakness so rarely in RL that when I really feel at rock bottom, it's difficult to know to whom to turn.
Well, that's enough raw honesty for today. Back to pretending I'm strong and ok.
