Cream teas, buckets and spades

This week we’re enjoying a sunny break in Devon at our favourite cottage. The front door of our cottage opens out onto the beach and the children have been perfecting the art of sandcastle making and hunting for pirate treasure.

There has been plenty of time for me to browse round the local charity shops. I was imagining discovering armfuls of vintage games, linens and quirky seaside souvenirs to brighten up our home. However, despite much looking, my bag is pretty empty. I lucked out on playing cards, picking up a pack of the Belisha card game by Pepys and two packs of Waddington’s Lexicon Card Game for 50p each. The latter feature letter cards so will be perfect for crafting with and making more banners.

We’ve enjoyed fish and chips, ice creams, a model village and funicular railway. We have a couple of days left so I will be spending a little more time charity shopping and hopefully fitting in a cream tea too!
