Trying hard to think of a way to start this post without sounding like a big dull dudd moaning about the weather. Ummmm. Nope, the weather has been crap and we are moody about it. These pictures aren’t the best, but I am putting them up anyway because they were meant to be sunny lovely! We went to a hot air balloon festival and I had visions of artisicly styled colourful photos and happy picnicky kids. But there were no balloons. Just rain, and wet people, looking for balloons. The face says it all.
So we had a little holiday in St. Ives, Cornwall, for a week and it was lovely and now I think I’d quite like to live there. We left at 4am due to my (slightly OTT) panic about getting stuck in a jam with two bored kids on a journey that already takes 6 hours. But we arrived at 10 (unable to check in till 3…) in a bit of a daze and feeling slightly jetlagged/drunk on tiredness. So we had ice creams for breakfast and sat there feeling confused for a few hours.
Winter is coming and it’s time to say “see you later” to your Saltwater sandals, and “hello” to your scarf and gloves. With the seasonal change in weather comes a need to stay warm and get indoors. But no one wants to be stuck inside all day, and we all need special places to hideaway with a hot chocolate or two.
