I’m on holiday for a whole week, Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
It feels like an age since my last week off work at Christmas.
Although time does seem to be flying at the moment, how can we be in March tomorrow already!!
I nearly always have the first week of March off as it is Gav’s Birthday week, I call it our half term.
We will have a few days off together then I’m off to Suffolk for some time with Mum & Dad. I have never lived in Felixstowe where the rest of my family live, but we visited many times as children, a few years a go my parents moved back there to be near their parents. I doubt I will ever live there as it has never been home to me, although I have wonderful childhood memories.
I loved Felixstowe as a child, space to run & play a safe place as I remember it. A quaint seaside town with a huge dock yard, the biggest in the country I think. The town is small with lovely seaside features like the Spa Pavillion a theatre on the prom.
In my teens I found it quite boring and yearned for the weekends to end so I could be at home with my friends at home.
Now I appreciate it, I can walk into town in 5 minutes, there are lots of CS’s, my favourite fabric shop, a market on a Sunday & a couple of nice bars & eateries for the evening and this lovely shop Vintage Mason.
I hate the drive there it can take 2.5hrs on a good day or 6 hrs on a bad day!!!
As I said before I will never live there it is not home but I will always visit, as my family are there.
So I’m off to a different seaside on Wednesday for some spoiling from my Mummy & Daddy, I’ve requested Dad’s fish pie for dinner and can’t wait.
A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I was hoping to be able to do a 100 follower giveaway.
Well I suddenly have 101 followers, big thanks to all who have been faithful followers and to those who are new.
So now I am planning a Vintage CS themed giveaway.
I will be hoping to pick up some more lovelies for it on my travels this week, and then I will post about it. Keep your eyes open.
I have been making my buttons for the button swap this weekend but will wait to show you when I am nearly done, I don't want my swap partner to see them before I send them.
I hope you all have a lovely week, and that the rain stops as I defiantly need some spring sunshine.
