Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside13:32
I've had to do this post a little later than planned as I have been ill all week and just couldn't find the motivation to do it. Now, that I am starting to feel a little better I have decided to do a post from the comfort of my bed. I had a great weekend last weekend with much better weather than I was expecting, especially with the horrible storms we had right before the weekend. On Saturday my Aunty and Uncle had a big summer party to raise money for charity. We have had a few family members suffer from cancer lately some we sadly lost, but after being diagnosed with breast cancer last year my Aunty was given the all clear recently. So this was a great reason to celebrate and give back. There was a raffle, tombola and lots of fun and games, and between us we managed to raise £215.

I made the mistake of staying up with a few others until 5.30 in the morning, sitting around a fire chatting and drinking, which wouldn't have been such a huge mistake if my parents hadn't decided to take a spontaneous trip to the seaside in the morning. Having stayed over and expecting to go straight home first thing I had no change of clothes or make up, and was definitely a bit zombie like after only 2 hours sleep. After a quick nap in the car I was feeling a bit more refreshed and looking forward to a day by the sea. Excuse my appearance in the following pictures, I was a little worse for wear.
All in all it was the best weekend I've had this summer so far.
