I always see people sharing on social media about their perfect family beach days. But sometimes I find beach days can be a bit of a bloody nightmare to be honest! During our recent holiday in Suffolk, we decided to visit Southwold Beach. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely place and a great family day out. But we just had a really unfortunate day when we visited, and a catalogue of things went wrong!! So I thought I’d write about our disastrous family beach day, just in case you, like me, sometimes look wistfully at everyone else’s dreamy days out and wonder why yours go horrifically wrong!!
I didn’t expect our summer holiday to be busy at all this year! In fact, what with lockdown and everything being so uncertain, I assumed they wouldn’t be. But with restrictions easing, and me starting to feel a bit less anxious about getting out and about, it feels like we’ve actually been super busy!
How is it August already?! This week has been another busy one. It’s crazy that the second week of the summer holidays is over!
The first week of the summer holidays is already done and dusted! I have a feeling it might actually fly by quite quickly. It’s been a nice balanced week – not too busy but we’ve done some lovely things as well. One of the big things has been that I’ve started relaxing a little about social distancing for the twigs with other kids.
So… this week was the twiglets’ last week of Reception! I can’t belieeeve they have already finished their first year of school – just crazy! And what an unexpected, mad year it was…
