I’ve talked before about the friends I’ve made through blogging, and recently Monkey and I went for a sleepover with Tina at The Soup Dragon Says. We’d been to a PR event in Bognor Regis for the afternoon and then went back to Tina’s for dinner. The boys tried out Monkey’s One World Futbol whilst Tina prepared our meal. It was lovely to watch Monkey make a new friend.
After dinner it was still really warm and it was obvious that Monkey was not going to be going to sleep any time soon. So an evening at the beach was in order. He was so excited, buckets and spades were found and we set off. Don’t we need the car Mummy? No Monkey, we can walk to the sea from Tina’s house. This was a revelation and oh, how envious I am!
We all walked, except Tina’s son who is testing out a Stunt Scooter for us from Zinc Sports – he was off like a shot! More on that to come soon.
We reached the beach and Monkey was straight to work – digging holes and filling them with water. Tina’s son and husband braved the water and were in control of keeping Monkey supplied with water for his constructions.
It was wonderful to spend an evening at the beach, simple pleasures.
As the sun started to set we decided to head back to Tina’s to get Monkey to bed. We’d had an evening at the beach, it was wonderful. Oh how I wish we lived nearer to the sea to make this a more regular occurrence.
