Sandcastles In The Sand…

We have all had a good start to the holidays, with great weather, yummy food and lots of laughter.

Followed by fun days out, a pointless surprise bus journey and my eldest son being in hospital with tonsillitis so bad his temperature wouldn’t go down. You would think at 20 it was time to stop worrying as much!?! 

So many thing we will remember from this week, for sure!!

I think the best day so far is a day out to Skegness. 

Sunshine, children, grandma and granddad ( my mum and dad) sandcastles, freshly made doughnuts, chips and ice cream at the seaside.

Sunday was defiantly the best day to go.

 We went by train and nearly had our own private carriage there and back on the train, it was perfect!!
