The Queen's Birthday: Long Weekend


I love a long weekend. Particularly when it involves family dos. Today we had a picker nicker at Balmoral. Another incredible Winter day. Playing on the beach. Digging in the sand. First tastes of fish and chips. Coffees from the hole in the wall. Hours in the sunshine. Catching up with cousins.

I am pooped to the max. After the picker nicker we quickly whizzed off to our friend's fourth birthday, and then home again, home again - jiggety jig. I am pooped. Bed - here I come.

Regular PMM programming will resume tomorrow. Until then.

That's nice...I love the beach any time of the year. Shame we don't live near one, otherwise I'd be there everyday!

We've been stuck inside with the flu and it's raining outside, cold and 7 degrees. No, we've not in England but may as well be. Anyway I think they are having their summer now. Is our winter equivalent to their summer?

This is why we want to move to Australia, so our winter weekends can be spent picnic-ing on beaches! Sounds like a perfect day to me :)
