It has been a quiet week up at the cottage, with warm sunny weather for most of it.
We don’t tend to travel too far when we are here on holidays on the north coast of Northern Ireland (also known as the Causeway Coast) – from Ballycastle “round the corner” to the East, and as far as Mussenden Temple to the West. Within those two points there are numerous beaches – from little rocky coves to wide stretches of golden sand. The kids love to explore the rock pools and what is it about burying a sibling in the sand?
They have been so contented to potter around on the beach, that for the first time in years I have managed to actually read CHAPTERS of a book on the beach! Of course the camera came too, and the kids obliged!
Heavy rain came this morning, so we headed for the cinema to see “Ice Age 3”. I was bemused when 2 of the characters both mentioned my blog “Welcome to my world”!!!
Our lovely neighbour shares her internet access with us, and the connection is great, so I have been able to catch up on lots of blog reading in the evenings, and have watched very little TV.
It has been lovley to have no schedule, after such a hectic time as school finished up last week. I find it takes us all a few days to adjust to the lack of schedule, then we relax into it, and just enjoy each day as it comes. Around lunch time we may say “park or beach?” and take it from there….bliss!
I have also been making lots more jewellery for janmary designs – this is my latest creation – a toggle charm bracelet with cute glass cubes and assorted charms.
I have also been making more necklaces, phone charms and ear rings. They will be in the store soon, and for the month of July I am offering FREE SHIPPING.
