What a week!
Teenage angst and anger,
Hospital emergency department,
Wet and miserable wintery weather,
Phone calls to teachers and depressing ‘she’s failing’ emails –
Each day seemingly longer than the last.
But what a way to finish –
Quick getaway to a local resort,
Delicious dinner in a cosy restaurant,
Waking to ocean views.
Buffet breakfast, the gym to ourselves and
More cuddles, more intimacy.
Then the Peninsula Hot Springs
Pools of steaming, healing water,
Dipping our bodies in and out,
Soaking in the healing minerals,
Ah – a much needed peaceful interlude.
