That is the best word to describe the lovely holiday i've just had - beautiful house to stay in, fantastic place and amazing views - even the weather was kind to us most of the time! No cooking, cleaning, animals to take care of or worry about for a whole week! Mind you the organizing beforehand was a nightmare!!! I'm very lucky to have such wonderful friends - some did mornings, some evenings and some weekend!!

But here are some pics that made all the organizing worthwhile - i won't bore you with too many as i took loads!! The place is Brixham in Devon.
This is where we stayed - see the house with a blue door in the wall - it was gorgeous, right on the harbour with all these lovely views - we had to get a place big enough to fit 8 of us in!

There was a lot of walking, crabbing, fishing and eating going on!

This is a pic of me and the girls, on the left is Em and on the right is Grace, Dan's girlfriend - we were rather out of puff as we had just walked up a long hill to get this lovely view!

Anyway, enough of the pics - have to now get ready for a rather busy week!! Tomorrow is Em's 21st, Tuesday is Dan's birthday and Friday is Tom's - so am rushing around now trying to wrap presents and write cards plus take all the pins out of the quilt i've made for Em (pics later in the week)!
hope you all have a lovely week.

It looks fab, Maria! Last time I went to Brixham it looked nowhere near as luxurious. For a moment there I thought you'd gone off to the south of France.

Glad you had a lovely time and I hope your busy week of birthdays is just fabulous.
