Busy bee !

Time flies and I don't get time to do all that I would like to do !

We went to Devon this weekend to celebrate my birthday and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a "luxury Mobile Home ". I wouldn't stay it was luxurious ( not really by 2011 standards anyway, may be it was about 20 years ago !! ) but it was cosy, there was even a little electric fire and we had lots of fun. The weather was mixed and we didn't get to swim in the sea but we got to watch the intrepid and brave (or nut ) surfers out there ! We found the most amazing cafe, right on the beach in Putsborough that served hot chocolate with Marshmallows and honestly, there isn't anywhere nicer in the world.

I mean, look at this view !
I loved Devon when I was young and Andrew and I stayed in a very basic campsite in Croydes but I liked it even better with the kids, even if we had to stay in my idea of hell campsite !! ( The funny thing is that when we saw this campsite 15 years ago, Andrew and I swore we would never go to a campsite with loud kids and swimming pools with slides and all day entertainment !! ) funny how we change !!

Anyway, obviously never got time to scrapbook but I have just noticed on Sketchy Thursdays that the sketch they have this week would work for my previous post and my entry for THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS. Here is the sketch...

5.19 sketch challenge

And so, here is my entry !! again !! I wasn't chosen for their GDT,  ( not sulking or anything !! ) ( just hate losing !! ) So I hope they like this one !!

I will speak to you soon. I am making a mini book about our street party for the Royal wedding and it might be finished soon !! Well, may be ...

Take care
