Best Friends on the Beach

This week we had Alex’s best friend, Holly, around for lunch and for a play. It was a lovely sunny day so we took them down to the beach to look for shells. I love how close these two are, despite only knowing each other since November. Something just seemed to ‘click’ between them. It also made me insanely proud of what a little gentleman we are bringing up – he helped her over the rocks, carried her book bag for her and really looked after her. I think they will be friends for many years to come

Me & Mine | January 2017

This was something I was determined to join in with this year. As I’ve mentioned before, there are very few family photos and it’s something I hate not having. It’s quite tricky getting a photo of everyone – either needing to balance my camera on something or get someone passing to take a photo and hope they manage to get a fairly decent one. I decided just after Christmas to treat myself to a tripod so we could get more photos of us all together. This was the very first photo I took using my tripod at the beginning of January, at Dinas Dinlle beach. It was just before sunset and it was a beautiful backdrop for a family photo!

Victoria Pier | #MySundayPhoto

This week we went down to the beach at Colwyn Bay to see the old Victoria Pier, which I think is due to be demolished at some point this year. You can’t get very close to it because it is dangerous and it’s very dilapidated and run down. It’s a shame¬†because you can imagine it a few years ago when it was a busy tourist attraction. I love piers – they seem so British and seaside-y, and to see another one go is really sad.

A Week on Instagram #3

Another week come and gone! We haven’t got out much at all – we wanted to wait until Ben’s nasty cough had gone before heading out too far, but then I came down with a rotten cold. This week so far has been spent building a new cabin bed for Harrison and new wardrobes for us. Hopefully, we will get out at some point though and get some much needed fresh air and exercise!

Diggers in the Sand | My Sunday Photo

We haven’t gone out much this week with Benjamin being poorly, so this was one from last Saturday. We had a few hours to kill before collecting our new kitten, Ellie from the RSPCA centre. We put our wellies on and headed to the beach with diggers and boats to play on the sand and in the rockpools.

A Week on Instagram

A while back, before all the upheaval of moving, I started doing a little round up of my week on Instagram. I really enjoyed looking back at the photos I had posted, and I want to start doing this again. ¬†I won’t share every photo with you – I post three times a day on there so this would be soooo long, but here are some of my favourites:
