We've been on our jolly holidays, a bit last minute as usual but much needed :) The weather was 'bracing' but beautiful and it was just what we needed to blow the cobwebs and the winter blues away...
The east coast in Yorkshire is one of my favourite places to be...theres something a bit wild and mysterious about all those crashing waves and little caves.... am a bit fed up to be back now but I did find a new obsession while we were there which could bring a little sunshine into our back garden.....

I've decided to build a beach hut, not quite sure how or where yet but I am working on it..and these are my inspiration.....shame I won't have that view but I can dream...

I wouldn't mind my own little boat too but one thing at a time I think...

Apart from getting VERY wet feet the boys favourite thing to do was the penny arcade games where they (amazingly) won lots of keyrings :)

So to keep a smile on my face I decided to give my 'roll model' a spring wardrobe update....wish it was that easy to do my own :)
Hope you're having a lovely week whatever you're up to x x x x x


  1. Thanks for the little guided tour. Your "roll model" is adorable.

  2. I love beach huts too, especially if they're painted duck egg blue!!
    Love 'your' new look. :)

  3. Oh looks fab Jane! Never been to Yorkshire but always thought it would be a great place to visit.

    It's funny how slot machines grab children so much! Mine would be in an arcade like that all day if they could.

    Love the roll model! Think I should get some tips!

    Have a lovely week!
