Well Little Sister has been off school for a fortnight and it's been a fortnight of contrasts and choices.
and pirate ships
and rainy days
Lavender in my garden
and in sachets
Uncooked cake mixture
and vanilla and chocolate
Some choices have been harder than others!
Days by the sea
and days at home. A time to catch up on old films, watching "Rebecca" late at night with Big Sister and "Wuthering Heights" on a grey afternoon.
An evening of sheer terror and suspense and an afternoon of girls crying inconsolably, eating cake and popcorn, cuddling and ultimately laughing. Dreams of Cornwall and the Yorkshire Moors. Good times.

All sounds wonderful! Even the rainy day looks pretty! t.x
Some lovely images Kim. I especially like the flower and reflection in the puddle. Marble cake, now that's something I haven't seen for a good few years, it looks very morish indeed. No difficult choice for me to make with Tunnocks, I will choose the milk chocolate every time! x
Looks like the most perfect summer! And it wouldn't be a proper British summer without a few rainy days. K x
Your pictures are beautiful, Kim. However, as a true foodie, it was the chocolate that caught my eye. On vacation we found a chocolate shop that had the Tunnocks caramel which I ate after gobbling down a Yorkie. And it is NOT just for boys!

Lovely. Rainy summer days are perfect for snuggling up on the sofa with a good old black and white film.

What a wonderful mix! I love the photos by the sea, especially the 1st one :o)
Here's to more day's filled with contrast!

Sounds and looks like a wonderful summer holiday so far Kim! I love the part about watching the old black and white movies. :) Good thing there are some of those rainy days in there for times of hanging on the couch wathcing them.
You have had some splendid 'contrasts and choices'!
Idyllic. And tunnocks wafers as well. What bliss.
Beautiful photos Kim, postcard perfect!x
That's it .. I am packing my bags this minute and heading your way... I can't resist Tunnocks in any shape or form or flavour!
Beautiful snapshot memories Kim..

All the contrasts were so well thought of...
Wonderful post Kim! I could eat those Tunnocks for every meal ;-)

Me again Kim,
I am going to be looking at a few cottages in Sussex next week....need to be sure that I am in the right part of Sussex...one is in Peasmarsh and two in Battle...do you have any suggestions of where to relocate my cottage? needs to be in part that would be of interest to holiday-makers!
Beautiful photos and it's a Tunnocks dark for me, every time ... :0)
Sounds like a wonderful fortnight:-
