Oh we do like to be beside the Sea

Cobwebs needed to be blown away today. We've eaten and eaten, played games, opened our gifts, cosied by the fire and had a lovely family time. Now the snow has finally gone, blue skies and warmer weather beckoned us outside to the sea. At New Year we always head to Southwold (just got there a few days early this year).

The Bun's climbed onto the guns as usual.

Then I suggested hot chocolate and marshmallows, so we rushed off to the pier to sit in the sun.

We played in the surreal amusements for a while - riding on the submarine and having our fortunes read, before heading to the sand for stone collecting and a dance or two.

Now I find myself here cosy by the fire once more on the eve of my 41st birthday; New Years Eve is fast approaching and on the 2nd January it will be the year anniversary of my blog. A whole year of so many memories, makes and lovely people.


  1. I love Southwold,such a lovely old fashioned,genteel sort of seaside-y place. I remember a lovely walk we did from there to Walberswick.My sister's birthday is also tomorrow.Hope you have a lovely day.


  2. Oh I love Southwold - one of my favourite places to visit. Might even talk the boys & MrVV into a walk there tomorrow.

    Hope you have a great birthday.

  9. A very happy Bun New Year to you and the whole Bun Shop! Love your New Year Southwold tradition - funny I was thinking of popping over there tomorrow!

  10. What an enchanting blog. It's so English. Your crafts look interesting too, just my cup of tea. I do hope I can find you again. (I think we share a birthday). Here in Melbourne Australia we're alternately baking in 38c heat or splashing through steamy puddles. So different from your side of the world. So sorry about your little rabbits - heartbreaking. We have rats too (live in old farmhouse) but foxes are our biggest problem. Cheers :-)

  11. Oops, Sorry, hope you had a happy birthday.

  12. Happy New Year to you and I hope you had a wonderful birthday , my 41st is fast approaching too. Southwold looks beautiful, I have never visited but would love to one day.

    Southwold really looks a nice place but I hope mr.Bun managed to get his head out of the gun spout.. he looks a bit stuck there in that photo!
    Thankyou for a whole year (and two days)of blog loveliness x

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
