So... we went away, and came back, and here we are! Two days in advance, we just decided to take off and have a nearly-free weekend, another one of those utterly unplanned chaotic rush-to-find-clothes-and-wash-nappies fits of madness.
It was glorious. HUGE thanks to Ashleigh, whose floor we stayed on again, and who paid for both our trip to the Abbey and for pizza - without which our weekend wouldn't have been the same! HUGEST thanks to Izzy, whose weekend cabin we then took over for the weekend because she couldn't go. Every little thing that could have gone wrong just didn't. And we had a wonderful time. :)
"Mama - croissants!!"
I'm likely the only person who has ever made croissants in that cabin. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who has ever washed a cloth nappy in the sink on the basis that we might run out and it was only barely damp when I took it off the baby!
Anyhow. The beach. We had blazing sun all weekend (sorry Izzy)!
We did forget to take a proper sling. Thankfully the old pouch I made years ago was in the car, without which we would have been in quite a pickle!
This is the rest of my children, in October, in the sea.
Up to their middles.
In October. In the sea. The sea was BITTER.
We have come home buzzing, and contented, and filled up with sea air and blue skies (and croissants). :)
