Oh I do like to be besides the Seaside...

Happy Monday Morning Everyone!

How was everyone’s weekend?

I thought this morning I’d share with you what I did over the past few days.  Unfortunately there is nothing I’ve created for you guys to see today but hopefully you’ll still enjoy the read.

After work on Saturday we (me and Adam) drove to Kessingland in Suffolk for a weekend at our friends.  The sun was shining and the sky was blue.  When we got there we were automatically handed a nice cold beer –which is always good.  After a quick catch up, we started walking to the beach which was only about a 20 minute walk and set up camp.  The beach was beautiful and practically deserted.  The sand was so soft under your feet and the sea was the most amazing colour.  We had a bbq on the beach and ate lots of yummy food and had a couple more beverages! As it started to get dark, the boys decided it would be fun to go for a swim- rather them than me, I stood on the beach and took pictures (far more sensible) After a leisurely stroll back to the house we then sat and had a couple of cheeky G and T’s and went to bed.

Sunday was another beautiful sunny day! The sun streamed in through the curtains which I have to say is one of the best ways to be woken up.  After a hearty breakfast we took a drive to the perfect town of Southwold.  We took a stroll up by the harbour and stopped for some scrummy fish and chips! Then unfortunately it was time to head for home.

I had such a lovely weekend – it was great to just jump in the car and drive to the beach, I think sometimes I take for granted how close to the sea I actually am. I thought I’d also share a few pictures; hope I don’t make anyone jealous with the fish and chips!!

So I think its going to be a very busy couple of weeks on the blog! I purchased a new website over the weekend – I managed to squeeze this in-between various trips to the beach! I had one before but it lapsed.  This new site is to bring both cards and jewellery together and also anything else I try my hand at that’s good enough to sell.  Also my friend is in the process in designing my new logo – which I have to admit I am so excited about.  Hopefully it will be on the blog and website within the next week or so! As well as this exciting news I’ll also have a lot more designs and creations to share with you – its all going on.

Don’t forget the jewellery give away ends tomorrow- all you have to do is leave a comment on any of my posts to be in with a chance to win.  I have made it easier to comment – you now don’t need to sign in you can just comment and leave your name!! Now there are no excuses!

I hope you all have a lovely day – the sun is shining at the moment so fingers crossed it stays like this!
