Flashback Friday - Beach Holidays

It's all kinds of crazy in my life at the moment and the main reason is we are preparing for a trip abroad. Trying to organise things for a holiday with a toddler is demanding to say the least.  Added to the fact we chose now (why?) to get our bedroom and en-suite decorated.

With the holiday just around the corner, it got me thinking what Mini Cheddar will make of it this year. Last year she was only 13 months old so was limited in what she could gain from the experience.

It also got me thinking about holidays I had as a child.  We never went abroad for our holidays when I was young, actually I think I was 13 years old before I first went on an aeroplane.  However, I have such fond memories of our holidays.

We wouldn't always go far, sometimes even just an hour and a half away to Black Rock Sands where we would rent a caravan for a week or two.  Quite often my Grandparents would come over to join us on the weekends.  My Sister and I would love spending time on the beach.

I hope that Mini Cheddar also gets to experience this kind of holiday too.

Check out my strap marks!

That's right, take a photo where we have
to look directly at the sun.

The windbreak is purely to protect my
Dads mahooooooosive sideburns
My Sister burying me in the sand
My Sister loves me so much she decides to bury me
My sister buried in the sand with only her head sticking out
I get my revenge my chopping her head off
and feeding it to our pet poodle Tina.

A helmet haircut and a home-knitted cardi...
I was always at the cutting edge of fashion!
