I've never seen Magnolias this big!

Sunshine, beach, sand...where??

Right here!! So we have been to a few UK beaches - but always it has been cold and rocky. Not that it isn't beautiful, but just not the same. I have been yearning for sunshine and the beach - thinking I had to go somewhere else, but we found it less than 2 hours away. Andy planned a little getaway for Mother's day weekend (22 March here) and we ended up with fantastic weather. We spent a day at the zoo and a day at the beach.  The blossoms and bulbs are all out, and it is gorgeous! (Okay, so today it is grey again and pouring rain, but who can complain - with a week like last week.) Here are some pictures from our weekend:

What a gorgeous Mother's day! Thanks Andy!

What's in your freezer?

We're going to move to a new house in May so tonight we decided to finally see what was in the bottom drawer of our freezer. We've never been able to open it and we were honestly afraid of what we would find if we did.

To our surprise it was a massive block of ice! We have no idea how it got there but it must have taken years. I took a core sample and it dates back to the mesozoic period.
