Me on a Monday

Monday, 24 August 2015
Waving at the lovely Sian, for this great idea.  You'll find me this rainy Monday wading through the mud and grim that has been our home for the past 3 weeks.  The garden renovations are going very slowly. So on Thursday, we packed our bags and put the bears into the car and took off for the little house.  Did I mention the builder doesn't work on Fridays!

Anyway, we had a fabulous time .... the sun was shining, so what was not to love.

So here is a short round up in photos;

Bertie and I smooched and watched the tide come in

Lots of drinks and b-b-q's were had outside

The doors were flung wide open and the bears had a lovely time. 

We walked along the sea wall and saw the plaques that we bought for Simon's father and grandparents along the new causeway

The back in 10 minutes, is a nod to his sign that he used to put in his workshop when he went out on his boat 

All in all ... a fabulous weekend was had, and I didn't want to leave. 

I've realised I've not shared many photos with you all of the little house, now the building work has been completed.  So I will share those with you over the next few weeks.  Here's one of my gorgeous kitchen though. Oh how I love it .... you can see why I didn't want to leave. 

Thanks for sticking by this photo heavy post.  Have a great week x


  1. It must be great to just up and go for a few days when you want....i'd want to.... just to be able to spend time in your kitchen :) x

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend - and what a lovely little home to spend it in x

  3.'d never be stuck for something to look at with that view! Thank goodness you had somewhere else to go when the building got unbearable. Your kitchen really is must be a pleasure to work in (almost lol)
