Paradise in England!

Well as promised here are the holiday pics! We had a fantastic time ( once we got there- car troubles set us back!) WE arrived in Cornwall and I had asked the universe for some Sunshine for us and you guys to think positve for us...and thats exactly what we got from Day 1!!! SO THANKYOU ALL!!
We were staying in Hayle and the beach was on our doorstep...this was taken at 7pm!!

We went for a walk and to fly a kite when Aidy decided to go for a paddle.....
  ........and then jump in fully clothed!!!
Hayle was not far from St Ives....heres a view from the train ride round the bay
 St Ives is home to this little shop you may have heard of ??!!!!
Its shop used to be a cottage and is just too Cute!! ( fancy a little peek?)
Prettiness EVERYWHERE! 
Heres the little  crooked stairs leading to more cute
I found a few more gorgeous little shops with pretties in and I could have taken pics forever..however I'll show you what my fave object of desire was......
surprise surprise.....

I cant remember the name of this shop as I forgot to take a card but I left mine so if you are reading this please contact me so I can credit your lovely shop!
I found a little craft fair in the local community centre of Hayle and met this lovely woman called Maureen who painted the most lovely pictures and I bought this beautiful piece from her..
...I asked if she was local and she replied that she came here on her honeymoon 45 years ago and never went home!! I LOVE THAT!!!

Heres me and my (not so little any more) man
This is what I spent my last day Doing...
Sitting on the beach reading Twilight ( i'm hooked) and eating cherries...
until Sunset

Well I hope I didnt bore you too much...I have a lot of catching up to still do with my work so bear with me, I'll make it worth your while!!!!......Thanks to all for helping me reach over 200 followers in time for my 1 yr anniversary from blogging....Thankyou to all who read my ramblings now and over the last year....I'm BLESSED xxxx

Glad you enjoyed it and the weather seemed nice too. The last few years we've had lots of rain. I love the photo of Hayle, it looks almost like the Caribbean!

Annie thank you for sharing you holiday pics looks like you had a great time and the weather was glorious. We always used to get rain when we went to Devon to visit hubby's sister, she used to say we brought the rain with us - but knowing how green Devon is I think she may have told porkies!!!
