Beach Cook Out at Holywell Bay

  Nothing beats an evening at the beach in Summer. We have had quite a few over recent weeks but last night was all the more special as we decided to try out Tony’s new Kelly Kettle set by having a beach BBQ with some friends that are visiting and their children. You can burn […]

My Little Mermaid

For as long as I can remember, Eva has told me that she is a mermaid, an actual mermaid. When she is left alone in the bath, shower, sea or swimming pool she apparently grows a big scaly tail and is a proper mermaid, not a pretend one, a genuine half-fish girl with a shell […]
