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.
Luckily, living where we do, we have the benefit of access to several different holiday clubs - so most holidays one or other of them will be operating. Mostly we send DS on sport ones - although there's a 'hang out' one where he seems to spend all day building lego... . Luckily he has got used to going from early and its sort of run of the mill for him - and not something to be worried about or anything.
Nice weather we're having! I'm at home with a cough, so at least I'm not going to go out in it.
yeah, work being in teh middle of nowhere doesn;t help. Have sorted 3 days with childminder& 2 sports days ( doesn't run all week, only certain days). but CM can't collect from sports days and they finish at 3pm. grr.
Yes, holidays can be tricky, but we are lucky to have access to a very good Playscheme which is open from something like 7.30 to 6.30 (not that I would dream of leaving The Girl there that long, but at least it is flexible).
ohhhh, have found interesting looking play scheme in the forest not too far from work!!!! Forest school type stuff. might investigate that in May half term, got Easter covered already, 3 days with CM, and working 2 bank hols so DH can hold the fort.
So far I have been using the school holiday club which Small Bean really enjoys thank goodness since I have no other options . It is a nightmare though trying to sort out the odd days and I am lucky that my work is fairly flexible and my boss is very, very flexible. Small Bean finishes on Tuesday and doesn't go back until the 16th April .
Is everyone ok? Haven't been around much and just catching up.
Hi all. We've not been having a fun spring break week, poor JB is completely miserable with seasonal allergies (still that bloody alder pollen) and fevers and cough and snotty nose and now he's been saying his legs hurt the last few days - growing pains? Or what? Just not a happy boy.
And I'm tired and stressed and need to get my taxes done before we meet with the accountant on Tuesday, so am logging off and going to do that.
I got a bad cough / cold - off work Friday until yesterday, completely floored at the weekend. Unfortunately MC has caught it - I had to get up twice in the night to give him more cough linctus and pain relief and he's off to the Drs this morning with DH
<inserts [feeling sorry for self] emoticon> I had a sebaceous cyst excised from my back yesterday - very sore today. Surgeon was a very funny and nice man and super-quick but said "I would be surprised if you had any discomfort later, if you do, just take some paracetamol" - - I am so sore. Going to the Vancouver Auto Show with DH later, not looking forward to walking around clambering into and out of cars.
On the plus side, it has been a week of gorgeous weather. Reminds me why I live here
got up, got dressed Thermal long johns, jeans, Thermal top, T-shirt, fleece and gillet. Went and hung washing on line. Got into car to go to work, saw temp was -1. Thought, oh, didn;t seem tooooo cold. Then remembered what I was wearing.
Got to work - unheated large barn. put on another hoody and overalls, hat and gloves.
I have had an absolutely shit two weeks -- new week/new month/new season can't come soon enough for me!
On a positive note, though, SmallBoy was presented with his Ducklings 2 (swim certificate) in class yesterday. He, and the little girls in his class, were all beaming with their certificates in hand. SB is definitely proud of his.
ohh ohhh, proud swim mom corner. may i join you scout. Boy ( and all the rest of his group strangely) have passed Stage 4, as there are still 4 weeks of swim term to go, they have started work on stage 5! So yesterday off they trooped to "explore the deep end".
Good morning all! Just popped in to see what was going on. At the moment I see myself more as 'carer for elderly parent' than 'mother of only child'. Only child is getting, perforce, more empathetic and caring.
If we are sharing swimming, Wriggle shot through Level 1 in about 3 lessons and is now joining Level 2. We are proud.
Wriggle has now come bouncing downstairs, having tired of Grandmother Sitting with CBeebies, so I have to go now.
