Springtime


I just love Springtime - its there on my sidebar as one of my favourite things, and I think I love Easter almost as much as Christmas. Perhaps its the prospect of not one, but two bank holidays, or maybe its when we start looking forward to warmer weather and lighter evenings - but whatever it is, this time of year is flippin fantastic!
If you cross over the road from my house and go down the road for about a minute you come to this lovely path, known as 'Martins Ravine'......

which leads directly to this......

Sunday was gorgeous here, usually there is quite a bit of a breeze on the beach but it was sunny and dare I say it? - almost warm!
There was plenty of sandcastle making to be done and plenty of this too....

So now I have 8 glorious days off work - there is so much I want to do, Projects I want to crack on with and places I want to visit. I started as soon as I came in from work today by arranging this little easter display in our hallway. I am quite pleased with it, but think I will add a pretty potted primula and a basket of mini eggs (bet they won't last long!)

There has also been a little more crochet done too....

I can't wait!

How lovely to live so near the beach, I'm a two hour drive away so don't get there as often as I'd like :(
Spring makes us all feel better doesn't it, I've got more energy now and feel like getting on a doing things. Love your Easter display, might look out for some suitable twigs later!

Spring is my favourite season too! I hope you are enjoying you're time off work. I have dipped in and out of your blog for some time now. As of this weekend I am a novice blogger and have added Summer by the sea to my fav blogs.

Love your easter display. Enjoy your time off! How lovely it must be to have the sea nearby - that's my dream! Hope you had a lovely Easter. Lucy xxx

I think a day in Filey is on the Agenda for the not too distant future. We all love filey. It still has proper sea side charm. We also love the nearby Hunmanby Gap - a fabulous "nothing" of a place but so sweet - and the best thing about the Yorkshire coast, is that you can always get horlicks in the Cafe's!!!
