We arrived at my in laws farm 2 days ago. They live in Carnaby, in East Ridding Yorkshire.
I have been waking up at 2am the last 2 nights. Jet lag and mis matched body clocks is an awful combination. The good thing is that in this part of the world, the sun rises at around 4.30am. So we went for a walk on the beach.
I thought I would be swapping the cold winter weather in Sydney, Australia for the warm European Summer weather. Except England seems to be having an unusual cold start to their Summer, so I in fact just went from cold to colder because get this... When we first arrived we had a low of 9 degrees and a high of 17 degrees Celsius.
Anyway, during our walk at the beach, the tide was super low which frustrated the hell out of the Chubster because we kept catching him before he had time to make it to the freezing water of the North Sea.
I wore this yesterday. I only packed 3 pairs of shoes for this holiday. Two pairs of flats and these tennis shoes.
Here are a couple of shots of Bridlington's beach promenade.
I went to Tesco afterwards for nappies, toddler formula and the obligatory junk food to accompany world cup games, because there is nothing else to do at 5.30am other than hang out at the local 24 hour supermarket. I revelled in the numerous BB and CC creams in my skin tone, something I can never find in Australia and decided to try these two out.
We spent just over £36 and got this much back for next time... I still don't understand why but I am not complaining.
My Bubster gave me lots of butter cups.
We said hello to Jack, my in laws pony who always manages to kick me every single time we have come to visit... The bastard!!!
We explored my mother in law's garden. She is a bit of a green thumb. Her garden is gorgeous!!!
We have done a bit of shopping at Yorkshire's designer centre. It seems I did not pack enough winter clothes, because who does that when you go on a summer holiday????
I came across this cute thing at Marcs & Spencer. It weighs a tonne and its a door stopper. My husband said we didn't need it.
Need, wish, want, who cares. I got it anyway! HA HA
Darth Vader tries to sneak up on the Chubster.
Then The Chubster and Darth Vader face off.
