I love the beach!

Indeed, I would have attempted to blog every day of January if we hadn't left for a holiday at the beach the day after New Years Day. I may have even started more blog posts with the word "indeed" as I did with this one.

It's not as if I was offline - the house we stayed in was generous with its WiFi and we had iPads, iPods, notebooks and goodness-knows-what-else. But I just really hate editing my typing on the iPad. I have a hate-hate relationship with the little magnifying glass device I have to use to place my cursor way back THERE in the text so I spent the time reading your blogs and checking Facebook. Even though I'm not actually ON Facebook. As I will continue to do until -erm- my husband changes the password on his account.

We stayed in a house with Justamum and her family. Seven children, aged 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1, and four adults, ages unspecified, made for fun times! We love hanging out with those guys and having them with us doubled the fun.

My one big regret is that we didn't take any photos at all. Taking photos is such a chore for me, I wish I was like those of you who always have a camera ready to snap away, but I worry life will pass me by uncaptured and unblogged. I am considering whipping up some pics of my own in MS Paint to recreate some of the moments for you, but I will leave that for a time when I'm not falling asleep and am on something a little more manageable than my iPad. Something with a mouse. Arrow keys. MS Paint. Whatever.

Sounds lovely even with a swag of kiddos - sheesh!

Glad you had a good time. I had no idea taking photos was a chore for you. I wouldn't worry about it passing you by. You capture far more of life than most people! However, I would love to see the MS Paint version. Which I would NEVER be patient enough to attempt.

We had such a good time too!!!! But also no photos :( We had a good time though that is the main thing!

Glad you're back!

Glad you had a great holiday.

And personally, I'd rather actually see and experience life, rather than only view it through the lens of a camera.

Wow! That sounds really... crowded, but I'm sure it was fun. The quality of the company makes all the difference.

I often forget to take photos too. I find myself just havong too much fun to take pics!

I am a photo taker and I have to say, that I have decided to stop taking so many photos and to live the moment.

We have a saying when we don't have a camera, we say "We will take photos in our minds" - which means we will try really hard to remember the moment... I love these moments more than those when I am trying to get everyone both looking at the camera and looking pleased about it!

Love your work!
