Here I Am!!

So, where have I been?

Where HAVEN'T I been??

Actually, scrap that, the list of where I have been is probably a little shorter ...

It's been a busy few weeks with Miss Mac and SD around for the Easter holidays and I'd say we've pretty much made the most of it.

The holiday started with a trip to Lyme Regis one evening to watch the sun go down and eat fish and chips on the sea wall.

Such a mellow evening with soft colours

But a little breezy

A trip to Burnham-On-Sea a to see 7th Son at the Ritz cinema, a proper old fashioned cinema with one screen and usherettes that come round with ice cream!

And another great sunset over the sea.

Time with Gus playing ball at the park.  It's SOOO good to see how he has perked up in the last couple of months.  Gus is starting to show his age a little and has slowed down over the winter but a course of fish oils seems to have given him a new lease of life and I'm so happy to see him running around like he used to.

Throw it again - you know you want to!

Oh god, waking up like THIS one morning!!

Looking like something from a horror film for several days (it got worse!) - thankfully no damage done and it's back to normal now!

A great day out at Blue Anchor walking Gus along the beach, trawling the car boot sale in the field and bagging some bargains.  Drinking coffee in the garden of the Driftwood cafe and driving back through the beautiful Quantock hills.

Sunbathing in the garden in the freakishly hot weather we are having with a trashy novel.

An amazing day wandering around the Antique and Charity shops of Honiton and sitting outside the Toast cafe drinking latte in the sun followed by a short drive to Sidmouth for my sun, sea and sand fix and yet MORE Antique and Charity shops and MORE bargains (a post on them soon!).

All of that and a meal out with friends in Minehead at a great pub followed by a band.  A couple of nights out at my local.  Time at the farm soaking up the sun and 'helping' SD with a few jobs.  Real quality time with Miss Mac and for some bizarre and unknown reason some manic Spring cleaning.

So , in short, that's where I've been and what I've been doing.

I hope you all had as good an Easter as I did!

No sun or ocean like you, but lots of family and Easter fun.

It looks like you made the most of your vacation time, love being able to unwind and just have fun.
My eye did that one year right at Halloween time. The neighborhood kids wanted to know what makeup I'd used to get my eye looking so scary!

That's the vest bit Joe, spending time with the ones you love - the sun and the sea were a bonus :-)

It's been great Karen, so busy but so chilled at the same time. The eye thing freaked me out, I don't know how it happened but it didn't hurt at all and thankfully cleared up within a few days.

Looking forward to the charity shop post!
The eyeball looks pretty bad. Glad to hear it's better. Was it a big sneeze or something that burst the blood vessels?

Your daughter has the most lovely complexion. xx

Ugh - YOUR EYE!! It is Easter you know, not Halloween. I now pronounce Halloween Holloween. I think I may be less English now :(
