away i went

i had a lovely time away on holiday. i loved being in the woods surrounded by giant trees, green-ness, quiet noise, earth, animals and even more trees. i am deeply in love with trees at the days away consisted of; swimming, bike riding, walking, crazy golf, trees, late nights, early mornings, long car drives, pick n mix sweets, toy shops, movie nights, home made pop corn, my mother's pancakes, chalk boards, giant cookies, walking on the sand, messing around with my sister, painting pottery, singing, eating 'weirds', buying presents for friends, Polaroid photos, filling in my drawing journal, buying cool stuff, reading twilight again, and taking photos.
i had such a wonderful time away..and didn't want to come back home...back to normal life. ah i wish i could go back into the woods. i really do miss it. i am fully in love with the views..oh how i miss it already...i had to add this photo in dad was washing up (even though we had a dishwasher at our Villa?!?!..and it was his holiday..) and he shouted, 'Nicola, come look at this, you will want to bring your camera..". and it was this little face in the sink, i couldn't stop smiling.i enjoyed drawing and writing in my drawing journal, i just need to keep it wonderful bag of holiday goodies! including the lovely bag. :)i am now off to read your lovely blogs! and then after to watch the office, an American workplace, while eating holiday chocolates, and maybe read a little too.

Looks like a lovely place for a holiday anyway duck! I'd like go on a woodland holiday!!

I think I may have forgot how to climb trees though, which is great shame.

Glad to see that you enjoyed your time away my lovely, as always you've brought us some gorgeous pictures. It looks like you had such a great time and I'm pleased. I know how much you wanted to get away from everything and have a small break.

And just for the record, my favourite picture is the smiling face in the bubbles :)
