Wimp! There were children on the beach in shorts and t shirts so what on earth was I doing in a scarf and hat?!


Well this is a random outfit if ever there was one! It was our son’s 13th birthday and one of his chosen activities for the day was to go crabbing off the pier. Although it’s sheltered where the house is in Wales, many times I have been lulled into a false sense of security and when I’ve reached our destination, I’ve been freezing cold and blown to bits, so on this occasion I was prepared. I liked the light on this photo – it looks all LA but the outfit looks anything but!

Granted I did feel slightly daft when there were children on the beach in only shorts and a t-shirt but I was glad of my Zara scarf (shoved into the bags at the last minute because it’s warm and I like the colour) GAP hat (ditto but with even less thought as to colour) Jules wellies (just because I didn’t want to risk trashing my suede “Harry Styles” boots, rather than because I was going to get wet) M&S sunglasses (found at the back of a drawer in the house in Wales presumably left here because I’m such a non-sunglasses kind of person that I never have them when I need them. Like today when I forgot to take them out with me.) And clearly as I put most of it on after getting out of the car and without the benefit of a mirror I look like a bag lady but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of bag lady chic.

When the sun shines here it’s just beautiful!

Three crabbing lines, three buckets, three nets – three happy children (and 24 crabs)!

    Angelsey is such a beautiful place, I was stationed at RAF Valley for over 3 years and loved it but the horizontal rain isn't so nice! Have a fab rest of your holiday xx
