freshsqueezedsunshineHappy Sunday! Except it’s Saturday.. I love scheduled posts that allow me to do the other stuff that I have to be doing when this post is due!

Here’s another card using the beautiful set ‘Sublime Citrus’FreshSqueezedStamps_SublimeCitrus_Images_1024x1024 You can see the post over at Fresh Squeezed Stamp’s blog here. I really loved stitching the rays- it’s similar to another card I did a while back- but I changed the design and wanted to use the citrus slice as the centre point of the sun.

We have been really soaking up the sunshine today. In a rare Saturday off, we decided to head for the beach- well, two in fact. The first which was our original destination ended up being little more than water at high tide! The second was picturesque and for about 40 minutes we had our own private beach!

beachThe kids loved it- getting really dirty in the mud because over there- it was heading towards low tide so there was no sea! One beach- no sand and all sea. The other; all beach and no sea! Ah well. All went well- kids buried each other’s feet, including mine. There was some cricket coaching that went well until hubby cricketed the ball into my face! Thankfully, the sunglasses took most of the impact . There was a minor panic by one kid insisting that another was going to end up stuck in ‘sinking sand’ & why wasn’t I going down to make sure they didn’t get stuck?!!

It was one of those days where time stood still for a little bit. I did struggle doing nothing. What is that about? Why is so hard to stop?! The beautiful sun shone, the wind was minimal & apart from a little sunburn (in a cut out part of my T-shirt that I’d forgotten was cut out!), it was really a lovely day. Next time we’re going for broke; sun, sand AND sea all in the same place! Know anywhere like that? 😉

See you when I’ve rid myself of a beach full of sand out of my hair! xx
