On the beach...........

This week I had a birthday. I must be getting extremely dull and narrow because I simply didn't care. What is with that? When you are a child you count off the days on the calender, you cross
off how many sleeps are left and then dream of what you might like to receive.

I think in my case - like many I know - it was to have the boxed set of Derwent pencils. Just thinking of them used to give me a shiver!

I remember that the only reason we got wall paper down our hall was because I had drawn over most of it. The idea that the drawings/scribble was oh so charming, eventually wore off and they were forever hidden under a cream embossed paper. Really rather boring now I come to think about it!

Well my family and I went down to the beach and ate fish and chips and went for a long walk.
It was just great. Here are some pics of the sand -I am never tired of looking at patterns in nature and how beautiful and somehow mystical they are. Almost too perfect to be true.

WELL sorry about that - I can't load any photos and have been unable to do so for about a week Anyone else having this trouble????

Hope everyone is having a good week
