it’s the little things …

We’ve been lucky enough to have a super long weekend for Eid Al Adha this year and, on Monday, I had the day all to myself as Steve and the kids headed over to Fujairah to do some fishing.

I could have stayed at home to tackle the monster pile of laundry that keeps on jumping out at me from under my bathroom basin but, instead, I headed off to my happy place, the beach, for the first time in months.


It’s still a bit too hot to spend too much time in the sun but the sea was flat and crystal clear and perfect for wallowing … something I do really well!! I think I spent about an hour just floating about enjoying the water and the feel of the sun on my skin.


“There is nowhere else I would rather be, nothing else I would rather be doing. I am at the beach looking west with the continent behind me as the sun tracks down to the sea. I have my bearings.” Tim Winton (Land’s Edge)

After my swim, I indulged a little more by visiting one of my favourite spots, Cafe Rider, for some brekkie and a coffee … found a comfy chair in a quiet corner and just relaxed.

As I continue on this journey, I am slowly starting to realise that I need to slow down, and take time for me, do the things that make me happy and just be. It doesn’t take much to make me happy … the sea, sand between my toes and the sun on my shoulders and a good coffee … absolute bliss!!
