What a Scrappy Life

I'm still here ...

Hello everyone, well April was a very busy month for me so it will take a few blogposts to get up to date, and now we are nearly at the end of May and I'm still trying to catch-up with my blog.

I've compared my month of April to waiting for a bus, you know you wait and wait for a bus and then, not one but two or three turn up at once.  Well that was how my April was, but with events not buses - lol x.

This is how my March / April appeared in my calendar

Good Friday (25/3) till Tuesday (29/3) - Norfolk
Wednesday (30/3) - travel to London
Thursday(31/3) - Fly to Malta with family
Tuesday (5/4) - Return to UK, and travel home
Wed (6/4 -8/4) - Fri am - quick turn around them travel to Preston for a long weekend
Fri pm (8/4) - Mon pm  (11/4)- Preston (school re-union)
Mon pm (11/4) - Fri am (15/4) - home and catch up with my boys
Friday (15/4) - till Mon (25/4) (10 days) - Crafting retreat - organised 2 weekend craft retreats with two different group - 1st one friends, 2nd one HLM DT girls.  But decided to stay the days in between and went on a few day trips, blog post to follow.

The above took a lot of planning and organising especially with such a short turn around between each event.  Thankfully my husband was great and supported my time away from the family 100%  and now that James is older its a lot easier.  But really could I have been any more busier for the month of April.

Now I am back its taking me some time to sort my head out and get back on track with everything, I am hoping that I can catch up with my blog and share some of my layouts with your all, over the next few weeks,

Let's get back to Sheringham, have I told you that I love this place, walking by the sea, visiting the various cafe in the town, eating fish & chips, enjoying an ice-cream or two, listening to the waves crashing on the rocks, I really could go on and on, but all in all this place brings me back down to earth and I've stood still for a while and just enjoy the peace, calm and stillness of life while I recharge my batteries.

So I will start my catch-up from the end of March, well Good Friday to be exact and we made our trip down to Norfolk for a family holiday, this was going to be a short week for me as I had to make my way to London for a trip to Malta (blogpost here).

So here are a few photos from my trip.

My inlaws where with us this time and we had a few long beach walks together, which was lovely.

After one of our walks, we found a pen of lamb near the sea front, talk about seeing something

As usual I went to the Easter Sunday service, again bringing be peace and calmness.

We had several ice-creams - which are made with Norfolk milk and are the creamiest I've had and if you can't get one flavour that you would like here then you are super fussy.

We had a family Thai meal in the local restaurant, which was lovely.

What is it about being by the sea and it bringing you some peace and calmness to your life? Am I getting a bit too deep ?  I just love walking along the beach, sitting my the waters edge and breathing in the sea air ...

One of my highlight was re-meeting Wes, I met him on the beach last October and he came running up to me, OMG! I love this dog, is that possible to love a dog when you don't even know it - well again he came running over to me and the owners was just as shocked as me that he recognised me, if I lived down here I could be his regular dog walker and dog sitter no problem.

And there was also several coffees and samples of cakes before I left

And an evening walk to watch the sunset over the sea.

Then it was time for me to leave and make my way down to London, of course with the help of James wheeling my case to the station.

I will be back shortly with my visit to Malta, which will be in two parts.
