Moving House...

If I'm not around much during the next week, it's because my eldest daughter is moving house and we're making the 250 mile trip to help out.

We've rented an apartment overlooking the sea and my daughter and her friend will be joining us for the week, before moving into new accommodation for their final year at university.

Here's hoping that the weather will be kind and we'll arrive in time to enjoy breakfast at our favourite beach cafe, before calling on Olivia and C. Chances are, our daughter won't be awake, but I'm optimistic that she'll have packed and that her house will be ready for the next occupants.

This time last year we were doing exactly the same thing, but were able to stay for only three nights due to work commitments. It was manic, but we managed to cram an awful lot in and the weather was gorgeous.

If all goes to plan, there'll be more time off for good behaviour this time around and we hope to spend hours and hours at the beach...

Visit a garden or two...

And take in stunning scenes like this...


And this...

I'm also plotting the odd trip several trips to the pub and may have written an itinerary as I don't want to miss a thing this time around.

My daughter lives in a stunning part of the UK. Someday we hope to live there too...

What are your plans for the summer?

Until next time...

  1. This looks amazing Izzie! There are obviously some wonderful perks to having daughters in far flung places. Have a great time :)

  2. Oh, that is so beautiful! We're also thinking that moving might be on the cards. I'm seriously hoping we manage to find a house in the countryside or in a little village. For me that's what Herefordshire and Worcestershire are all about :)

  3. I'm keeping tabs on your intention to move to the coast and am quietly hopeful it won't be too far from Brighton, yet know it's miles away. No doubt it will come off in good time :) X
