Ahhh Guernsey in the sun is just the most heavenly place!
My sister and I took the kids to the beach at about 4pm today. It was still gorgeous and sunny and even warm and the children enjoyed playing in the sand and water. Who could want more? We had the beach almost to ourselves and it was perfect!
Of course we had to enjoy a small ice-cream just to feel like it really is spring!
Today we went out to the beach and the park at Ladies Bay. It was a beautiful sunny day but it was so, so chilly. The wind was bitterly cold which was a real shame so in the end we walked to a cafe for a coffee.
Whilst I am on maternity leave I am trying to have lunch with my Mum, sister and the kids. It’s nice to get the chance to try out one of the different cafes.
Today we went to The Beach House a Pembroke Beach and we went for a short walk before we ate.
Barnabas had a slight crisis during the walk, all because his Mum was pushing his truck along the beach. It might be a little bit cruel to post this picture but it amused me because it kind of looks like his monster hat is eating his head1!
Today The Little Mister and I met up with some friend from ante-natal and post-natal classes. It is always nice to meet up with other people with babies the same sort of age.
It was such a gorgeous day that we decided to park a bit further around the coast and walk to the coffee shop. It was lovely and sunny and it felt like Spring is imminent. This little boat caught my attention, it was bobbing away on a beautifully calm sea. Lovely.
The Little Mister was really unsettled this afternoon. He would guzzle down his milk and then end up puking it all up again. He hasn’t wanted to be put down at all and I haven’t got anything done.
I decided to take him out in the pram for a quick walk across the beach. A gorgeous but chilly day and the low sun was just beautiful. As we left the house he promptly went to sleep. He stayed asleep throughout the walk when he woke 5 minutes from home and resumed screaming. Typical!!
This morning was cloudy and warmish but the wind was extremely chilly. That didn’t stop the several hundred mentally unstable people who took part in the annual Boxing Day Dip in aid of the Guernsey Cheshire Homes. I love this event and we always see lots of people we know and enjoy having a short walk out to the beach. The community gathers together and there is something rather lovely about that.
This year my cousin Stefi, The Mister and my brother-in-law decided to brave the cold and go in. Here they are pulling their ‘Muscle Face’ before legging it into the sea whilst screaming like pre-teen girls.
