So what started out as a day that we thought would end in rain, turned out to be a perfect day on the Island.  We got up and left the house to be at the dock by 10am for the first ferry of the day.  After getting on the ferry in my shorts, singlet and bikini I thought, oh no I am going to freeze.  By the time we got to the island the sun had started to come out from behind the grayish looking clouds and Lauree and I sat down on the grass watching the kids play in the park and did some more sunbaking.  After about an hour we decided to let the kids go for a swim and found this lovely little secluded beach area.  The kids swam and for the first time in my life (other than my back yard) I sun baked topless hehehehe...  It was such a wonderful place to be and getting there so early meant that there were no other people there for at least an hour or two.  While the kids were swimming they came across a family of ducks and ducklings and started to hand feed them in the water, it was such a cute thing to see
After we left the island, we came back home and Lotus and Jasper went to their friends house where they are spending the night.  So tonight is about Lauree and I with Slade running around too.  How are intending on spending our evening I hear you ask...  Well earlier this week we went out and bought hair colouring so that is what we are doing this evening.  Photos to come on the new hair colour for me anyway...
Funniest thing whilst we were sitting down to eat dinner, which I made, Lasagna, how awesome... so tasty... with Yuli Shiraz Cabernet 2007, wine of Chile.  Such a great drop of wine.  Am loving International wines...  So back to the funniest thing, Lauree looks out the window and there is this group of guys sitting over in the park by the lake, and one of them is walking around stark naked.  Yes stark naked.  In public no less.  Apparently this is not an issue here in Finland where people seem to go naked quite often.  For me it is strange because it is a group of guys and they are all looking and playing around.  Weird but so funny, not sure if these photos work but you get the drift.
So all in all it has been a wonderful day, nice and relaxing, spending more time with family and just reading.  I love to read and am almost finished my book, which means that I can now attack the books of Lauree's that I have not read.
Should head off now to rinse this colour out of my hair, it has been there a while now and am worried that it will be brighter than it should.  We have done it red all over, with blonde streaks and black/purple on the bottom, underneath.  Am a little scared.
Moi Moi.
Hei, just checked my hair and it is AWESOME!!!!
