The Summer is here. The children have broken up from school. Which means that as soon as the weather forecast looks full of sunshine and warmth then it’s a family trip out to be beside the seaside! What better way to spend family days together than playing in the sea, building sandcastles and eating sandy sandwiches?

I posted a photograph a few days ago on Instagram, of my evening. Hubby was working away – he typically goes on a Monday morning and gets home on a Friday night – and so I usually have the week on my own. My photograph was of the above.

I love reading these kinds of posts by other people, and now I have been tagged to have a go by the lovely Katy who blogs at What Katy Said. So here goes – with hopefully some things you don’t know about me already…!

April has been a fab month (so far). We’ve had gorgeous weather – we’re still having it (please last!) and we’ve been up to a lot as a family. We have certainly been busy, but trying to enjoy as much time together as we can. Here’s a few little things we’ve been up to recently:
