Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

We decided to visit the seaside today to blow away the cobwebs
It was cold, grey and drizzly
We had fun though

All wrapped up in coats, hats, gloves and scarves
mugs of cinnamon hot chocolate 
a jar of quality street
my family all together
it was perfect

Yes it really was that grey!

Later at a different part of the beech 
we stood on the pebbles watching the crazy surfers
whilst eating steaming hot chips with lashings of salt and vinegar
they were the most delicious chips we had ever eaten!

I can't even begin to imagine the number of calories 
that I have consumed this Christmas time
in fact I don't even want to go there
it would be far too shocking to consider
anyway I like calories and plan to eat a LOT more yet

I hope you are having lots of fun too

more soon j x


  1. What a great way to spend the day. We went out for a walk in the country this morning and it was alittle to nippy to stay out too long, so we headed home to warm up with some soup. Happy new year xx

  2. Sounds like a wonderful family day and those mugs of cinnamon hot chocolate must have been just right for such a windy day.
    Have a Happy New Year!

  3. Ahhhh that looks & sounds like a blooming perfect family day out! My kinda day :) I'm with you on teh calorie counting.....what IS that again?!

    Hope you enjoy the New Year weekend x

  4. Sounds perfect Jooles. Isn't it funny how food tastes different depending where it's eaten?!
    Happy New Year

  5. Calories: tiny little creatures that live in your wardrobe and make unwanted alterations to your clothes ;D

    I am so envious that you got to the beach. We always go to the beach at least once in Christmas week but this year tide and weather have been against us, and anyway it wouldn't have been the same without Tolly.

    Happy New Year Jooles :D

  6. Sounds like Heaven!!! Happy New Year

  7. That sounds like a really lovely family day out, it doesnt matter what the weathers like when your all together. Those chips sound scrummy!
    I've eaten soooo much this Christmas, I put on 5.5lb's in just over a week! (...there was a Whole lotta cake, chocolate and Bailey's!) :S

  8. Sounds just the ticket for a day out after Christmas !
    I have to say I'm loving eating the calories too. ;)
    Happy New Year Jooles!

  10. Lovely to walk beside the sea any time of year! Love your mugs of hot chocolate, so pretty!
    Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year, Jooles!

  11. I have also enjoyed copious amounts of calories but I have just declared to my family that I AM going to be friends with salads. HNY to you all.

  12. It sounds like a fab day! And I especially like the sound of the chips!!! There's not much in life that's better than the smell of chips and vinegar at the seaside (apart from eating them)!!! ;-)
    Calories??? What ARE they??? I have developed selective memory loss in that area over the holidays!!! ;-)
