Girls weekend away

Last Friday I hurriedly packed some clothes and a few groceries and drove down to Peregian Beach to take part in a girls weekend away. I have to admit it wasn't without a few reservations as I only knew one person very well and two more I'd met a few times and there was seven of us going. Did I mention we were staying in a three bedroom house near the beach. Seven females, three bedrooms, one bathroom and one ensuite......this could turn into a nightmare. I am so happy to say it didn't.

The house was large enough for us all to not be tripping over each other and the ladies were all diverse so that made it a really interesting mix. We had all been allocated a meal to prepare (oh and what fantastic food we had) so that made the food side of things very easy. Everyone was meant to provide an activity and I have to say I took down a basket of card making supplies down but it stayed in the car as by the time we had a browse around the gorgeous little shops, ate, talked, read, received some beauty treatments, swam, walked on the beach, watched a dvd and went to the markets the weekend was sadly over.

Overall it was a great weekend and because we shared costs it was economical as well. The two lovely ladies who organised it are Charlene and Kim, thanks again ladies.

ooooh, I am so jealous. Looks like a gorgeous spot and what better way to spend a relaxing weekend than with a group of lovely ladies.
