1. I spent my Sunday night sewing and sipping Baileys, making the most of every last minute of the holidays.

2. Finished my first #rubydress. This is the first garment I have managed to make between Sunday evening and Friday.

3. Wilfie is particularly wiry at this time of year, so I gave him a good brush. He enjoyed it, for a while at least, and pulled this (slightly crazed) face.

4. Friday night sewing ~ with a cocktail! What’s not to love?

5. It’s fairly stormy here this week, and I took this on a Saturday morning stroll. Just after this I saw a kingfisher, but had no chance of photographing him. Next time!

6. I’ve been fairly restrained in the after Christmas sales, but I did indulge in a couple of purchases from Cath Kidston. This is one of them, a new weekend bag in my favourite style to keep my hands free for lead-holding and bag-carrying.

7. I’ve succeeded in preparing my lunches each day this week (no school dinners, yet!) but today I did sample some Italian delights. Lemon, pistachio and hazelnut. Delicious!

  1. Beautiful photographs this week! I put the exact same bag in the shopping cart on Cath Kidston!!!…it’s $15 to ship though so I am holding on until we have a place of our own so I can do a big order! 🙂

Even after 5 years of visiting Hardelot, I still find it impossible to say which house I would choose to live in. Not photographed are so many picture perfect cottages, many with thatched roofs. These are a few we pass each time we walk down to the beach. .

#france2017 #hardelot #pasdecalais #houses #maison #french #traditional #unique #architecture #holidayhomes #empty #outofseason #schooltrips On Thursday we visited the market in Le Touquet. After stocking up on traditional French souvenirs such as baseball caps, cuddly toys + fidget spinners, a couple of children asked if they could buy some fruit. As they were waiting to pay I snatched a couple of moments to explore the greengrocer.
