Day 239: An Afternoon by the Sea Clears the Mind

A Few Pictures of Herne Bay

The girls and I drove to my mum and dad’s in Herne Bay today. We took a packed lunch and sat in their garden to eat it so that we could still practise social distancing. Then we all popped down the road to see my brother for a short while in between his meetings.

After that, I really wanted an icecream and a walk around by the sea. We were so lucky with the weather as the sun came out just at that point and we were able to spend about an hour wandering around. It was so lovely and I so needed it. Did you spot me in the photo sitting on the grass staring out to sea?

Before the long drive home, we went back to my mum and dad’s garden for a cuppa and a slice of cake that I made yesterday.

I think that it was the fresh air that made me start to feel really tired; however, I managed to wake myself up enough to drive home.

I’m ok with having a day off from decluttering today as I’ve done loads this week. I’ll consider it as a day to clear some space in my mind. As I’m not back at work until next Tuesday afternoon, I still have plenty of time to get more work done around the house.

I am now going to curl up and watch a film and maybe go to bed early. Really looking forward to it.

Thanks for a lovely afternoon mum and dad! It was so good to see you.

Until tomorrow everyone…
