life is soo simple...

when you put into place a cunning plan to holiday in Lincolnshire with beloved Grandparents up from London...and no one has to drive too far and no-one's in charge or has to clean or plan meals...we all stay in a pleasant, warm, clean, well-equipped house in the autumn Lincolnshire countryside...we go birdwatching at the beautiful coast, walking in the woods and shopping in the attractive medieval town of Lincoln...and snuggle up every evening to play games, read and watch tv ...a lovely way to spend half term...just missing our Swiss cousins as their halfterm was last week...

I will say no more...here's a little taste...


 
 

















mm...vintage in a charity shop...a whole roomful...isn't this a cracker? and there was a delightful little chair for a tenner...sadly no room in the car unless we leave someone behind...



and there has to be a tea shop somewhere...you should have seen the homemade cakes...and we found the very lovely CallyCo shop with a very nice lady serving us...so much temptation, fabrics, ribbons, kits, threads, buttons...all manner of deliciousness! Well it will soon be Christmas and there's no harm in getting a few little goodies for my present cupboard...not for me you understand...

hope you had a good half term too...

it was thanks, nice to be away from the usual 'things to do' list at home, and it was a lovely place to go.

What a wonderful place to go with family to relax. I love your pictures of the coast and that charity shop looks amazing with it's vintage section!
