7 Days - 1400 miles - 1 Wedding and 1 Holiday

Saturday 25th & my not-so-little middle brother got married in Northumberland. The day we should have been driving down to Cornwall.

So long as he promised not to do this on a regular occasion, we happily delayed the start of our holiday and went up instead of down the country. His bride looked beautiful, and the sun shone down all afternoon - the Groom scrubbed up well too...

I was so proud of the Little People as they took their respective bridesmaid / pageboy duties most seriously, and were beautifully well behaved..

We drove down to Cornwall on the Sunday, arriving completely cream-crackered, from all the exciting events over the past 48 hours.

We were lucky enough to have some sun....

And even the overcast wet days were more tolerable than if we'd been at home -

The wet suits proved invaluable again - On the cooler days they kept them deliciously warm and snug, and on the hotter one, protecting them from the sun.

Whilst the 8 year old's latest obsession with the icy cold waves left me in a slightly nervous state, jumping around like a water nymph. He doesn't carry an ounce of fat on him & I feared he would be washed away, or catch his death of cold.

Hope everyone is enjoying the start of the summer holidays
Love from Lydia x

    Yes, I know the feeling too well, My son was always in the sea when we lived there.. I'd sit in the car in the winter with binoculars...
