By the Sea!

Thought i'd show you some pics of where i live.
Here is the fountain in some gardens by the sea. I sat here one day last week with my book on my way home from town.
I like living by the sea!
There will be more in future posts!

Cinema Night!!

Easter was Cinema night at our friend Nick's.
Cinema Night consists of a film projected onto a big screen in Nick's barn.
The film was Run Fat Boy Run, which we all really enjoyed.
Also enjoyed the choc ices that were passed around during the 'interval'.
Here are some photos of the 'cinema'.

This one was looking down on the 'cinema' from one of the balconys

And this one is a bit dark but you get the picture...
You can't really see but there is the biggest woodburner on the left of the pic..

So lets talk about them.
Can you ever have enough handbags?
Can you spend too much money on one?
I have quite a few bags which i alternate the use of for everyday purposes, you see i really think it depends on what you are doing/where you are going, which bag to use on any given day.
These two lovelys are the the lucky ones that came out with me and sis on Sat night for the party.
Dontcha just love the little Doggie..


A friend had her 40th party at the weekend, which i went to with hubbie, sis and some pals.
Fun was had by all us 80's kids, dancing the night away to the Communards, Culture Club and the like! Here is the card i got for her i thought it was really cool with all the sparkles!

Here is me and kev at the end of the night..

And the two sisters..

I'm going to hell..

Today i have been very bad, it started when i met Rachel this morning. Rachel is back from Uni for Easter break (Yipeeee).
We thought we would have breakfast in the Alex, then we had a wander around town. On the way back we had to go past the Alex, which just beckoned us inside again, where we had lunch.
I have decided it is definately nearly summer therefore it is perfectly acceptable to have a couple of glasses of Pimms in the middle of the day..
Just when we thought we couldn't possibly eat another bite, we had to get past the ice cream parlour, so of course we had to have some.
I'm stuffed.

Blustery Days..

There seems to be a lot of them this week, although as usual Felixstowe has been escaping the worst of it, we really do seem to have our own weather here!
Monday was the worst day, Kev decided he should have the day off, so we went for a blustery walk along the front and found a nice warm bar to hole up in and have lunch..and a few drinks..
in the evening we went to Felixstowe cinema (always an experience) and saw Juno with Graham and Jessie.
A fun day was had by all.

Another Weekend..

...flew by, but we did go out to a friends daughter's 21st birthday (How old does that make us feel?)

Then on Sunday whilst i was hard at work Kev went out and did his stuff on the trials bike..
Thought you may like to see it being mended in the garage from the last playtime..
And here is part of it drying in my dining room. Thankfully it's all back together now.. Till the next time of course..

A Day Off!!!!!

At last! I had a long lie in today and managed to finish the book i was reading, then was very naughty and started another one, and no i don't feel guilty!!
I have just walked into town along the prom, it's a lovely sunny day today and lots of people are out and about.
Hubbie also has the day off, but he made himself a big pack up, and went off with his friend to buy bits for their toy, namely a new set of tracks for the 432, see pic below of them 'messing about' in it last year.. Hmmm boys eh? And there's me thinking i'd been naughty today!


Look what happened in Felixstowe at the weekend!
Reckon the owned of the boat is breathing a sigh of relief don't you?!

Thought this one was especially nice..

Havent Been around...

For a while... been staring at things like this....
At this place....
i suppose there are a lot worse jobs i could be doing!!!
Today was very busy, i was at Colchester. Think everyone was in town to buy the mum's pressies for tomorrow, and of course they couldn't resist the lure of the yummie stuff!!
