So this is round two of my summer catch-up posts!
Now that me and my mister share looking after our daughter AND running the shop, we had very little time this summer together (this is a short term thing!). I don't take the camera with me all the time obviously but my mister is always better organised about these things, and he took some photos of trips with the tot to the local beaches, belly boarding and crabbing off the pier...
(prehistoric crabbing line and filthy dress well documented here)
Unfortunately although crabs were caught, they decided the bucket wasn't for them, and released their grip on the tasty prawns and fell back into the sea.
In other news, we went to London for a short work related trip, and decided to all go. (sugary naughties also well documented here).

corduroy jacket (£10)
Back on the Island, I had a badly timed cold virus type thing which left me feeling like poo for about two weeks (in fact I am still coughing and sniffing as I type this). So I have been the world's most boring mum to our very tolerant toddler. I did manage a few short walks on various beaches though...
BUT mega chuffed to have bumped into Dame Ellen MacArthur's dog! she is one of my heroes. (Ellen, not the dog I mean)
How ever the peace and tranquility of the place was some what disrupted but a grumpy sleepy screaming tot, so we had to make a quick and slightly embarrassing exit back along the bridge! (that's her British granny with us too btw)
