Home again. The suitcase is unpacked and the laundry is in. I had some seriously exciting mail waiting for me - but you will have to wait to see that. I shall just sit here grinning about it meanwhile.
If you were on Instagram over the past week then you can skip this photo heavy post as you will have seen it all already. If not, here is a high speed recap of some of the things we got up to this week -
Over excited child (the youngest), sewing on the train, desert at the Chinese buffet, Cinderella on Ice, cold but beautiful beach, finds at the American candy shop (a new discovery for us), new boots (woohoo!), huge veggie burger and a shop full of Japanese fun stuff.
Sunday market in Tynemouth Station - food glorious food, antiques, crafts, second hand stuff and great browsing.
Finding a stall holder with lots of covetable things - including old Singers - but he only took cash and there wasn't a bank machine in the village, at least not one in working order. Oh, and a lingerie shop with the best name!
Fish and chips, massive veggie burger (that somehow snuck into two mosaics), my mum's birthday (cake by Helen), Emily enjoying a potato stuffed with prawns, cream tea for me and obscenely coloured tongue courtesy of the American candy shop!
A visit to Northumberlandia. Top left photo explains. I, childishly, can now say I stood on the biggest boob you could ever imagine.
It was a fabulous week. Lots of fun things to do, and quality time with my mum and stepdad. Hope you all had a good week too. I didn't read one blog while I was away so while I shall try to catch up I rather doubt I will be able to read the whole backlog. But back to routine now. If I missed anything particularly exciting, please let me know!
