Post image for On the coast…

Wasn’t Tuesday just gorgeous in the south east? We popped into town for a few errands and found ourselves whiling away the hours on the seafront. Bliss.

Considering we live close enough to the sea to view it from our bedroom window we spend shockingly little time on the beach. I mean virtually none at all. Crazy, huh?

Oh and all this pollution and saharan desert sand storm that was supposed to be covering the south coast…. Well I can’t say we noticed it!

So here are some photo’s I snapped on my phone…

vince beach::: Handsome.

throwing stones::: Throwing.

emma beach::: Roaming.

whitebait::: Whitebait.

beach art::: Building.

shingle bottle::: Collecting.

Making Memories!

I have had such a wonderful day, full of love and laughter, a perfectly relaxed, family oriented Sunday.

These are a few moments I captured through out the day :)

Perfect Sunday 3::: After a breakfast treat of pain au chocolat, we all headed to church this morning. Emma was on her best behaviour and Vince even took her up to the children’s talk for the first time.

Perfect Sunday 2::: We came home in time to take this beautiful brisket out of the oven, which had been slow cooking all morning. There is nothing better than coming back to a house that smells of something yummy cooking!

Perfect Sunday 4::: The brisket became the centrepiece of  a great roast dinner, thoroughly enjoyed by all. Emma even ate some vegetables voluntarily!!!

Perfect Sunday 1::: A little post-dinner/pre-nap afternoon reading time. Love our little bookworm <3

Perfect Sunday::: Early evening cuddles watching The AristoCats (although daddy was snoozing!)

Perfect Sunday 5::: Emma has gone to bed, I am having a second helping of dessert (peach cobbler & custard) and settling in with some crochet and films with my hubby. Oh and writing this post of course!

If only Vince had every Sunday at home! I hope you have all had a lovely day too :-)

Goodbye February!

I can’t believe that it is the 1st of March already! Happily, February did end on a good week for us and today was apparently the first day of Spring in the meteorological calendar. That is some very welcome news! So here is my round up of the last week in February 2014 to see […]

last week FLU by….

24 February 2014 Lovely Little Family

Yes. I did just write that. LOL. My husband (a big fan of puns & word play) is clearly influencing the way I think! But it is true. Unfortunately. The last week has just whizzed by in a blur of stomach flu and laundry. Last month seemed to be defined by colds and I feel […]

Thumbnail image for a much better week….. mostly!

Well, we are pretty much one week into February (already?!) and thankfully I think we are all feeling much better for it in our neck of the woods. We have had some negatives this week:- I’ve had a headache almost every day to accompany my stuffy nose, I’m pretty sure it’s my allergies acting up. Myself […]

31 January 2014 Lovely Little Crochet

It is the last day of January!!! I can’t lie, I’m not sorry to see the end of this month. We have definitely had better starts to new years gone by. That is not to say we haven’t had any lovely, happy days over the last month, just that the overall feeling and mood has […]
