Life's A Beach

We're away to the Lincolnshire coast tomorrow for the first week of our summer holidays.

The weather forecast's looking a bit mixed at the moment so I'm just hoping we'll be able to get some days on the beach, as well as doing a bit of sightseeing in between lots of relaxation.

I keep saying that this will probably be the last holiday that either of our children come with us, I said it last year and the year before, but yet again, Eleanor's decided that she'll come with us. I'm really pleased because she's such good company, both for me and for Mick.


We're staying in a lodge by the edge of a lake on which fishing is permitted. Both Mick and Eleanor fish when they're on holiday so I'm sure I'll get a bit of reading and knitting time in whilst they're both happy doing other things. Don't worry, they don't leave me on my own for long, they only fish on an evening when I'm quite happy to have a bit of me time.

I know this won't be the last holiday that Eleanor's with us as we have another week booked in Norfolk this summer and Eleanor's coming with us then too. I love it that my nineteen year old daughter doesn't deem it uncool to go away with her parents. I suppose it helps that we're paying for her.

I believe the lodge we're staying in does have wi-fi but I'm looking forward to some time without technology so I doubt I'll be doing any blogging until I return home. See you all in August.

  3. I think it's great that Eleanor comes away with you, I think Stevie was about 16 when she decided that holiday with the parents wasn't 'cool', lol.
    have a great holiday, i hope the weather is kind to you, and even if it's mixed the change of scene will be wonderful.
    Have fun x

  10. I'm pretty sure that I stopped going on family holidays once I turned 16 - I'm hoping that my kids don't follow suit and continue to want to tag along with us. Have a wonderful time - hopefully the weather cooperates!
