Home Sweet Home


Life is settling down here at Shingle Cottage .....Everything is new and there has and still is lots to do.
Monday to Friday Steve has to work and sleep in the city which is  hard for both of us,It's not forever but it is hard to be apart from someone you love for so much of the week. 

Still  for our dream to come true it is a small price to pay and we get so excited talking on the phone Thursday nights and Steve always says 'one more sleep' and that one more sleep was last night which means he will be home today for a lovely weekend :)

The weather report is looking good so we will no doubt be working hard  sneaking off to the beach ;)

You can hear the Summer waves tumbling into shore  from our cottage  garden and when the sun is shining it is all too tempting to not want to clamber down to the beach...

Down we go through sandy steps....


Through long grass and poppies....It's quite a way down...'Watch your footing'


Oh the sound of the waves is the first thing that gets me every time....There isn't a prettier tune....


Ahhhhhh and sand between your toes is lovely.....
Beach girls don't mind their denim wet and and a mucky little pup...When we get home a hot bath will be run and the washing machine will be humming....



'Ooooh Mummy look bubbles,pretty white bubbles' 

Beatrix is enjoying her new life by the sea...All new and so much to 'sea'....


She likes to run to her dad but after a minute she spins around to check where i am,She and i are very close,maybe too close but  you can't help but love her,she is quite the charmer.


Sparkle and shimmer and the taste of salt on your lips....Everything we dreamed of and a little more...


Back up the hill....See Steve's legs in the top right hand corner? and see Beatrix running back down to check where i am ? ;) eek look at the colour of her paws!!!

After a little walk we reach our picket fence with daisies and Lavender peeking through....


And roses too.....


A peek in the kitchen window where strawberries,sage and roses are lazing in the sunshine...


We are 'Home Sweet Home'




I hope you are well and have enjoyed the lovely Summer we have been having so far,Will you
join me next time for more cottage garden flowers and goings on from our place and yours Shingle Cottage?
