Hello.... Today's post is all about a somewhat
A couple of weeks ago I travelled to a very pretty village in Suffolk with some friends, 11 of us in total, six children including two cute as buttons babies for a fun filled holiday.
Day one the sun shone so brightly so we set off for the beach, crossing the cute little crabbing bridge
to get to the golden sands of Walberswick.
Where was paddles picniced and of course I took my crochet along.
The next morning was sunny too, and it was wonderful to practise some gentle yoga in the garden, enjoying the sun on my skin, a rare chance for me as one of my medications makes me allergic to the sun, I was a treatment break especially to go away.
Then the weather kind of broke, perfect for the ducks who live on
the villages very pretty pond, but not so great for us.
So after that it was all about inside activities, for young and old alike, hedge row crumbles
A little bit of music
Warming homemade soups for lunch
and Play Doh,
I was thrilled to discover they now make glittery Play Doh!!
and some crafty upcycling, which you can read more about 'here'
The rain did stop occasionally and everyone was bundled into the car and off out for a walk in the woods. I was happy just to admire the beautiful sight of Dunwich Heath from the shelter of the car.
Happily reading my book while the others were off exploring.
Then down to the beach, for the mini's to go fossil hunting, while I happily sat listening to the waves crash to shore.
I had plenty of time to put my feet up and have a good rest too, while the other went for walks in the drippy drippy rain to help ease the mini's cabin fever.
and of course there was plenty of crochet, we did go to the RSPB reserve at Minmere one day, which I'll share with you in a separate post
Then of course I managed my epic slip and fall, flip flops, wet decking and kitchen floors are a bad combo.
Thanks for all the kind words, I had four X-rays taken today as it's still very painful. Thankfully no broken bones, but I have damaged the ligaments, which are going to take 6-8 weeks to recover with the help of some physio.
What a wet old summer it has been here in the UK
