The Gardiner Family have returned from their trip to the seaside 😄
Isn’t it amazing how two days away is all it takes to restore you to a peaceful, relaxed state! The weather was beautiful and to just lie on a sandy beach, listening to the waves and the seagulls calling was bliss 😍
I’m making that all up 😄 “relaxed and peaceful” doesn’t go arm in arm with a long car journey to the coast with the girls in the back of the car! 😃 The weather was lovely though and we all got a little tan – me on my ears and half my neck – Jeff on one calf and third born a small patch on her chest – fourth born was spared!
Of course it wouldn’t be a “Gardiner Holiday” without some hiccups 😜 Fourth born getting her hair caught in the “high performance” hand drier and having to be physically extracted was an experience as was the £70 parking ticket Jeff collected for not conforming to the parking regulations 😄
As always my children keep me entertained with their constant questioning about various things and their complete “We haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about Mom” 😜
On the last day I said I wanted to visit a Donkey Sanctuary.
“What do you want to do that for” asked third born in horror “All the donkeys will be dead!” 😕
“Of course they won’t” I replied “they may be old but a Sanctuary is where they are looked after and cared for!”
“Oh – I thought you said Cemetery – not Sanctuary!” 😕
We didn’t go after all – the moment was lost …….. 😄😄
