"Put it away!" He glanced at me, half-joking and half-annoyed, as we drove down the eucalypt-lined road towards Countrywide Cottages. "I know, I know," I muttered. "It's just one last email . . . CRAP!" My little, lonely signal bar disappeared with not even a courtesy farewell, just as we turned into the driveway for Ferny Reach cottage. But I had promised him a work-free long weekend, so I exhaled deeply and switched off the iphone.
It turns out that shoddy reception was just what the doctor ordered - three days of bliss, unplugged and carefree, just myself, my man and my dog. Thank you so much Johnny, for spoiling me and for knowing exactly what I needed (even when I didn't realise it myself.)
This is our weekend at Ferny Reach, told through images (the way I remember all my favourite stories). I hope that you enjoy the photos half as much as I enjoyed taking them.
p.s. my challenge to you. unplug - for an hour, for a day, for a weekend. unplug and remember that there is more to life than work and that you will never, ever regret spending too much time with the ones that you adore.
