Isn’t this the Most Delicious bookshop In The World?!
We are now a toasty brown from all the swimming this week – so happy.
George took a walk around Ojai Village – that’ll probably be up on 1904 shortly.
Then we met up and had a drive down winding and magical back lanes, deep into the countryside, until we found ourselves at the twinkly Ranch House for our new year’s supper.
and now it’s getting to the late hour before the stroke of midnight strikes…..
(confession: actually it isn’t that late at all…….we can’t Possibly stay up until midnight oh no, gosh no. So George and teamgloria did a swift drive to the supermarket to get supplies like milk, satsumas and Greek yoghurt – just in case one Awakes Very early – and are now texting each other from our separate rooms while enjoying our delicious finds from barts books).
This isn’t the first time George and teamgloria have done a new year’s trip – (and to celebrate George’s birthday).
in fact, one year we went to a Franciscan Monastery called San Luis Rey for a silent retreat and wrote notes to each other as we were supposed to be silent and smiled beatifically over our simple yet nourishing fare in the long tabled refectory after a restful night’s writing and being generally Very Spiritual and peaceful in our monks’ cells.
That was a Splendid occasion.
And Ojai just topped it.
Couldn’t be happier, love.
And we feel 2012 will be Utterly delicious (said with something of a naughty flirtatious twinkle and a general all-round sparkly-ness).
