Who Stole the sun? Pinafore to Skirt & Don’t forget my Giveaway.

 

We were all completely fed up with the weather after the long period of rain, cloudy & cooler weather we’ve been having - so when the weather man promised wall to wall sunshine today we dressed in shorts & t-shirts and headed for the coast.

This is what the weather was like at Weymouth at 11.30 this morning!  Cold, foggy & very very grey!  As this is the UK, we weren’t the only ones mad enough to be on the beach, it was actually very busy on the main beach.  Luckily it did brighten up – but only as we were heading back to the car!  Here is a photo of my daughter proving that it was warm enough to paddle as we were leaving.

So I cut the top off

And finally – for those people who have read my waffle until the end, don’t forget my giveaway for those lovely people who are willing to give me a bit of advice on my website.  Click here to go to the page.

  1. Snap - we had glorious sunshine at home so headed a few miles to the coast this afternoon - it was shrouded in seamist - came home and the sunshine was still there!!

    Good idea to upcycle the dress - why do kids grow with only a few weeks of term left?
