Back from Bali and straight into it

We came back yesterday morning about 4am - time for a sleep and we haven't stopped yet. Almost up with the orders to date except that Quilting Arts 32 arrived today - sent some out but the remainder will go tomorrow. We had a wonderful few days - haven't had time to load the pics yet from the camera so come and see us swimming in our private pool looking out over the rice paddy fields. We stayed about 10 minutes out of Ubud where basically there were no others apart from us - it is a very quiet time. We did lots of reading, Swimming, relaxing - we were supposed to have a 3 hour spa together but didn't (we were on a package deal which also involved a walk in the bush, a candlelight dinner, a healthy spa lunch and breakfast each morning so we did very well) - instead we had reflexology and I had a pedicure and manicure so I now have painted toe and fingernails - for how long I wonder?


This is not us but down where the spa is by the river - it was quiet and not too hot and we had rain in the afternoons accompanied by thunder and lightening.

I have been knitting with drum sticks as I forgot my knitting needles so went to the markets - left them behind though to save worrying at quarantine but my knitting is two sided and when I have stuffed it with wool fibres I will take a pic.

We missed watching the dramatic finish to the game between the Hurricanes and the Sharks - what a dreadful ref - can't believe he didn't go for the video or ask the TMO. No wonder the crowd were mad. We only read about it on the 'puter.

Glad you had a good break--I love Bali and have stayed up in Ubud--what a serene place it is away from all the hustle and bustle of Kuta.

Sounds idyllic. Did you stay at Murni's Villas? Sounds like it. www.murnis.com

If not it's a good place for next time.

Best
