November might not seem like the ideal time to visit the beach but we love the relative peace and quiet.
We got very lucky with the weather last Sunday having driven through rain to get to the beach and then back into it on the way home. It seemed to have skipped Sheringham.
This year, for the first time, maybe ever, I got a proper winter coat. I’ve had coats before, obviously, but they have just been an ordinary bog standard coat and often, as I have found out many times, they haven’t even been waterproof.
When my last coat became so faded that I couldn’t even be sure of its original colour, I invested in a proper “performance” coat and, my goodness, what a difference it has made. It’s waterproof, windproof and has taped seams. I’m so comfortable now, even on a horrible wet school run. It was also the same price as a normal coat (I got it from an outlet). I wish I’d done it years ago (or at least after having Freya and spending more time outside).
Anyway, not an advert, more like a note to self.
How has your week been?
