Yesterday we had a little Tuesday treat with a trip down to the coast where my Mum and step dad had rented a little house by the river for a week. The weather was perfect, the girls were up for an adventure so we took the chance and took of early morning. The house is a perfect old school coastal rental that looks like this:

Needless to say, we were all in heaven as we kicked off shoes, stripped off layers and enjoyed the wintery sunshine that felt like a taste of spring, if not summer.
We even had fish and chips and prawns for lunch and a wee glass of wine to celebrate their wedding anniversary.

As soon as we climbed back up the mountain, the temperature dropped 10 degrees, jumpers were put again once more and fires were set. We’re not quite there yet, by a long stretch, but boy am I looking forward to summer…
