Ah!!... Just what we needed




We have had a lovely break away in Southwold.. sun most of the time, only had rain at night or early morning. The only time I used my umbrella was when I was sitting on a bench and the sun was too hot!! Got up last Friday morning to brilliant sunshine, so did our walk to the sea front the long way round,  so I could have my daily 30 mins walk plus!! I did more than that,  because we then wandered back through the town and popped into those shops we had promised ourselves we would. We had cakes out side the kitchen shop,  as it was the Macmillan's coffee morning and Nell nearly had a creamy cup cake because the lady dropped one on the ground!! LOL They had dog biscuits ready for your dog! Then we sat in the middle  of the high street on a bench in the shade with a take away Costa coffee,  as it was too hot in the sun!
We got back to the cottage middle of the afternoon, and decided to come home that evening so we could have all Saturday at home as the weather was supposed to be good and we had promised ourselves to get the garden a bit more sorted,.. we stopped off at Waitrose for a cooked chicken, coleslaw  and some salad bits and full fat yogurt, the last treats of our holiday!! (we like to live dangerously LOL)

Super cottage, only minutes from the town.. I ate all sorts of naughty things, so dreaded weighing and yes I have put on 3 pounds but we're back on track already. I liked to go back there for a another holiday, such a lovely little town.
My physio app. has come thro' at last, it's next Friday, so hope they are not too fierce as my arm is still very tender. I used to call them physio-terrorists after my knee op.LOL
These pretty beach huts sell for around £175,000!!  Can you believe that!!
 

 Hope you all have had a break away too and had sunny shiny days like us. Thank you for all the comments on my happiness post, this week away has almost got me back to my happy go lucky ways! And yes I had a few of these!
 Be happy.....

Sounds like a great break away, I always put on weight when I go away too. I love the beach huts, but certainly not the price!

I had to check a map to see where Southwold is - north of you and on the sea. You did have wonderful weather and good to her you're back to your old self. Physio should not hurt - if it does (more than a tiny bit) you're pushing yourself. I had multiple appointments for my ankle and they assured me that if it hurt, don't do it or ease back. You've had a long haul and you don't want to go backwards now. Take care, Leslie

Southwold is lovely but very expensive, I used to go to Walberswick they had the best fish and chip shop there, you could only get what the fishermen had caught that day. The manicure looks smart, I would love to have a pedicure but I tend to have hysterics if anyone touches my feet.

Breaks from the routine are so needed every now and then! So glad you had a lovely time away. :D
