When I woke up this morning, the sun was bursting through the curtains. I ditched my idea of an early morning swim, dressed quickly and by 6.45am headed out of the front door, making a last minute decision to grab my sunglasses.
I definitely needed them but, even though the sun was so bright as I set off around the seawall my eyes were soon watering as the chilly breeze blew directly into my face.

Today I walked as far as these new beach huts.  They're not quite finished but I really love them. When Michael and I were 16 we used to come here with his family for a day out, they kept a boat here and Michael used to do a lot of water skiing. I remember that there used to be a couple of old victorian bathing huts on the beach, long gone now, but these new ones remind me of them.

I mentioned in my last post that I have been making a photo album for my mum's 90th birthday. Well,  I finished it yesterday, having gone through so many albums and boxes, from in the loft and out of the loft. Some I could remember and others that I had forgotten, it was a real roller coaster through her life.
I really enjoyed putting it all together but it did take such a long time and yesterday as I sat there previewing it with my morning coffee I was almost hesitant in pushing the send button just incase I'd made some silly error. In the end I'd previewed it so many times that once the decision had been made and I'd actually clicked to send it, a sigh of relief washed over me.
I think my mum will be really surprised and quite emotional when she sees it for the first time. I'll let you know!

The first pair of socks are knitting up lovely. The yarn is good to work with and the pattern that I'm using is the one which is printed on the yarn label. Hopefully I'll get this one finished tonight.

Enjoy the rest of the week, it could be sunny!


  1. I hope that you are going to buy a beach hut, so that I can visit! Swop you a sewing lesson, for a sock knitting morning.

  2. That really is a gorgeous place to take an early morning walk. You are so lucky to live so close to the sea :)

  3. There is nothing like sun to raise the spirits! What a gorgeous walk, and that photo of the raised beach huts is great. I'd love a beach hut... x
