Home Sweet Home!

I arrived home a few hours ago from my brother's having had a fantastic time!

Thursday we packed up the picnic basket and headed to Walton-on-the-Naze

The weather wasn't completely on our side but at least it didn't rain and scones with jam and cream are good in any weather!

Brody enjoyed walking on the beach with his dad

And dad enjoyed some sand drawing!

I managed to spy some charity shops on the walk back to the car and came home with these two framed pictures

And we ended our day with pizza purchased with funds supplied by my mum whilst watching the latest Harry Potter film (which my SIL & I were very disappointed with!)

Friday it was off to the zoo where I fed an elephant!

Brody chilled out watching the animals 

and dad discovered elephants were heavy!

We had lunch in McDonalds (and I was happy to discover the Oreo McFlurry is back!) and later that evening watched another film comfy in pj's on the sofa

Saturday was less activity and more laying around at home in our pjs. My SIL did sneak out for a few hours to visit my favourite vintage shop down the road where I sensibly only purchased some cake forks

A BBQ that evening accompanied the Eurovision Song Contest and an end to a lovely weekend!

I had a lovely time and it really did feel like a holiday as my brother and SIL are great hosts and thoroughly spoilt me with good food, company and things to do! I didn't have to lift a finger the whole time I was!

Pin It Now!
