Of course with the new term comes children’s coughy sneezy germy things of a most yuksome nature. My youngest was attacked by a horrible cold virus late last week which has left him with really painful sinuses and earache so far resulting in 3 days off school. Not good really is it? He’s been symptom free all over the summer holidays which only leads me to believe one thing. School is obviously bad for your health!!
I had an absolutely splendiferous weekend. I ran away (with my Mum!) to the seaside to Cardinal Colours Yummy cardstock and scrapbook materials emporium run by a lovely lady!!wonderful Seaside crafting Retreat. (More about the actual Retreat tomorrow with some photographs of the resultant makes! ) I met some lovely people and hugged some old friends and, as a relatively inexperienced crafter by some standards, I learned lots of new techniques which I shall hopefully put to good use in the future.
Eastbourne itself is lovely. Although we didn’t have time to venture into the town we did take a stroll along the prom (prom prom). Didn’t hear any brass bands playing tiddly om pom pom but did hear a very good Abba tribute band playing in the bandstand on the Friday evening! The seafront itself is very impressive and clean with lots of lovely, grand, Victorian era hotels overlooking the sea. A quintessential English seaside town if ever I saw one!
Would you look at those clouds!
This was Saturday morning’s display. The photos were taken at around 5.50am.
Gorgeous isn’t it?
And this was Sunday. Taken at a similar time. What a difference a day makes eh?
And our hotel by night.
And of course, I couldn’t resist this shot of our wonderful Union Jack waving proudly above the breakers.
Just looking at them makes me smile like a daft thing! They’re all so perfectly squidgible!! I can’t resist tweaking them as I walk past.
Hey don't look at me like that!! I'm not hurting anyone!! hehee....
See you soon!!
