So .... July ....

Blue skies.

School broke up and the Summer holidays began.

A month of heat, hot sticky humid heat . Days were nice but nights not so much , nights of tossing and turning and waking up in desperate need of a cool refreshing shower.

Birthdays for both boys , boys turning 10 and 7 and growing so very quickly , scarily quickly in fact , no longer babies but still my babies.

Lots of beach walks , playing in the North Sea and finding beach treasures.

Cricket .... lots of matches and lots of training ... unfortunately not one match won.

Playing football down the park with summer haircuts.

Flowers, lots and lots of lovely flowers everywhere with lots of photo taking opportunities.

Doing the Big Butterfly Count and being sad at the lack of butterflies we actually saw but happy at the ones we did.

Overall not a bad month.

So here's looking forward to August , bring it on , we are ready for you.

Water Baby....


When we got to the beach the tide was right out and it was nice and warm .The fog hadn't quite burned off and was rolling across the sand. It looked quite spooky, it was quiet and peaceful , it was the perfect way to celebrate the water baby's 'birthday eve'.

Looking at this photo makes me understand why my mam loved this place so much and made me realise just how lucky we are to live so close to it.
