Welcome dear reader to my much neglected Blog! It is July and the Summertime Madness or Sadness depending which way you are inclined has struck and for this month's Plus 40 Fabulous we are talking Summer holidays,
I have to say I am a big fan of Summer from childhood it may be due to the 6 weeks off school and being a big kid I have never grown out of this and find myself becoming meloncholy towards the end of summer thinking as the first leaf falls that it will never be as perfect again. I am nothing if not a little self indulgent and dramatic at times.
As a kid summer holidays meant the beach, ice cream, spam fritters and holiday camps probably in Scarborough or Norfolk with their unique naf brand of entertainment and me entering every contest and never winning, I am still smarting at not being crowned Junior Miss Blue Dolphin,
|I am the very little one|
Now as a adult I tend to do Winter holidays as who wants to be in Britain when the weathers crap???? But I do tend to have a little Summer Staycation. A lot of this years Staycation will be devoted to the Rio games as I love the Olympics and geekily watch as much of it as I can.
However, some of my staycation plans will involve:
An Afternoon Tea. My Mother in law is visiting and I am searching for the ultimate afternoon tea, so hit me up with suggestions.
A visit to Margate, Dreamland and a ice cream parlour. I love the Margate, zero apologies given, I want to check out Dreamland and I want ice cream simples.
|Not in Margate but in Broadstairs|
To read the new Lisa Jewell book.
To Take some OOTD pictures, when I don't look like hell, I have some pretty fancy clothes that I would like to share.
There are probably loads more of things I want to on my staycation, but anyway I will be indulging and loving my time off in hopefully the summer sun.
I believe several other foxy forty plus bloggers have shared but please go and check out other blogs as there are some pretty splendid ones on the list below.
