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.
This afternoon we went to the Little Chapel before meeting up with birdie and the family. It was so lovely to see them and the children have grown and changed so much.
Dinner tonight was chaos, 6 adults, 4 children eating, 1 child not eating and a baby. It was mental. Rather like being camping but just as fun!
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 afternoon I went with my sister and the children to Vazon beach. It was absolutely freezing down, mainly because the wind was bitingly cold, but it was lovely to be out and about.
We took a walk across the beach to the groynes before heading up to the new Vista cafe for a most satisfactory coffee.
I have been tucking The Little Mister up in the Close sling which he seems to like and it saves me having to take the buggy out.
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.
This was taken at Cobo Beach yesterday. A beautiful sun setting at the end of an extremely busy week.
I am very, very grateful that it is the weekend!
The Mister and I took a late afternoon wander down to the beach. The tide was high and the sun was low and it was just beautiful.
We sat for a few minutes on the sea wall before walking along the road and home. On a high tide the sea comes right over the wall and tonight it seemed to be sparkling in the sunlight. Gorgeous.
Thank goodness it is the end of the week! Today has been a busy day and I have been really busy at work and The Mister has been busy doing work at the house.
We drove home via the coast and stopped to take a couple of photos and listen to the waves and breath deeply of the salty air. Beautiful!
