Freya's first beach visit :)

OK not very "beachy" but I can assure you she was on the beach. We went to Telpyn Point :) we bought a little cheapy beach tent so we could keep the sun off her skin AND we slathered her in SPF 50, you could have taken a blow torch to her skin and it would have mildly gone red that day .... she pretty much enjoyed it , but wasn't very impressed with the waves lapping at her feet, so we abandoned the idea of putting her in her trainer seat blow up raft and that decision was pretty much confirmed when my step daughter and youngest step son braved the cold waters, needless to say all the brass monkeys were lined up OUT of the water not daring to venture in like us idiots.... then it rained.... and thundered, and there was even a bit of lightning.... so we all sat in the one man beach tent and zipped it up and sat like economy class tesco value sardines, while all the other people left the beach.... however it was a good decision but could have gone horribly wrong as the deluge hit us. it honestly felt like a WWII submariner film, I was half expecting Sir John Mills to turn up as we were commenting on how much water was pouring into the Chinese made barely fit for purpose nylon inadequately stitched (and I use the term loosely) tent.....

but eventually it stopped and we ventured out from our steamy foot bath cum Turkish sauna and it brightened up and even got pretty damn warm again... we eventually left late in the afternoon and trudged up the long hill with my stepson carrying the absolute bare minimum and sulking when asked to carry a little more than his own boogie board which is made of polystyrene and which as everybody knows has the same atomic weight as uranium so is incredibly heavy ...... NOT....

I was all for excluding him from the ice cream stop on the way home in Pendine because he must have been FAR too tired to eat one.... but Andrea is an exponentially softer touch than me...but she is getting better these days ;¬)

the only other thing of note is that I somehow managed to break my little finger on my right hand yesterday..well it feels broken and was listing at a jaunty angle this morning and hurts like hell. So my apologies for any errors.....and needless to say this blog update has been typed by a 7 fingered pseudo cripple who winces like a girl when the keys IOPJKL/.,><@#] are attempted to be pressed..(did those with my other hand !!!)..... BUT I went to work this morning :)

Pah Joan of Arc ? who is she ?
