We're back..!

Hello my darlings and a very Happy New Year to you !! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you feel bright eyed, bushy tailed, and ready to take on 2011!



We are just back from heavenly Shoal Bay and we are all feeling great after ten days in what we refer to as 'Heaven on Earth'! (Google 'Shoal Bay Pictures' and you'll see why I am feeling so blissfully relaxed right now!) We've spent almost every moment outside - either in or on the water. Sheer divinity!
Though we are home again I will need the rest of the week to get back into the groove of things and hope you forgive me if I don't reveal the winners of the 'give-away' until the weekend. xx



I've missed you all but have have enjoyed your posts via my iPhone whilst away. Once I have conquered the impending post-holiday chores, I look forward to catching up with all of you properly.

Until then..

xx Charlotta

Welcome back! Your holiday sounds wonderful, taking advantage of the tropical bliss...

Happy 2011 Charlotta!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time and I can understand why as we have a beach house on the opposite side of Port Stephens, in Hawks Nest!

Unfortunately this year we didnt make it back there for Christmas (which we usually do), but stayed home in London for a white xmas.

Welcome back!

I'm an interior designer from Melbourne, Australia - I loved your blog, I found it very inspiring. This is all new to me but I have just set up my own blog
scrapbook-melissah.blogspot.com
You may like to check it out because I had so much fun doing it. It's got a bit of everything fashion, interiors, food, travel spots - hopefully you will find something in there that you like.
Thanks for providing me with such great entertainment!
Cheers
Melissah

Welcome back dear sis. You have been missed!

I can only imagine how relaxed and content you are (and I am sure your legs are beautifully tanned - what a concept!).

Don't stress now. Everybody took good breaks away from blog land during the winter break. You have not missed too much.


Love to you all.

Your holiday sounds glorious but lovely to have you back in the blogosphere! Isn't it amazing what a little break away can do for one's enthusiasm and morale? Holidays are such a necessary part of life to function fabulously - I reckon.

Welcome back, dear Charlotta - you have been missed, but I am so pleased you had a wonderful holiday! The tropicalness of it all is warming my bones just by reading (as you know UK January's are not the most topical of climes!).

Can't wait to hang out and share inspiration here in blogland during 2011. Hugs. xo

Oh goody goody! I was so excited to see you in my inbox :) I thought of writing you the other day, but chose against it as I didn't want you to have to open or respond to anything in the middle of travel!! I am doing the opposite. We just found out that we will be snowed/iced in for a 3rd day off from school! Sleeping in is getting to be quite the habit. I can't really complain about that :) I think everyone is slow to emerge from their slumber this winter, but that's okay with me. I'm usually last to know or go anywhere, esp in blog land, so it's nice that I feel somewhat caught up! I am such a water baby, I am envious and so happy for you all rolled into one sweet sentiment :D Take time to unpack, it too should be a ritual! XO, Kelly

Lisa said...

Thrilled to have you back!

Charlotta, thank you so much for your sweet comment yesterday. How absolutely terrifing for your friends but I'm glad to hear they made it back to Sydney safely if not a little dramatically.

Look forward to seeing more pics from your holidays, sounds lush! x

Tina said...

Ps. Blev väldigt nyfiken på din inbjudan att slå följe på er inplanderade 'Detox', MEN tvivlar på att jag idag har karaktär nog att genomföra något sådant. Om du får tid över kan du väl maila mig lite mer om vad det innebär:)!
Tack och Kram!
Ha det jättebra!

Hi dear, just checking to see if you've unpacked yet :) I've got to go to bed. Middle of the night when all is quiet seems to be so productive. Just can't do it ALL the time! XO
