I am writing this while feeling very virtuous, sipping on my peppermint tea with sweetener. Oh yeah baby, four weeks of no sugar – feeling very pleased with myself! Along with exercising I have lost ten pounds so far, so I’m feeling very encouraged!! Really looking forward to getting back to my old healthy self and taking care of me more!
Hasn’t this year been amazing for weather?! We have had such a beautiful long summer – and every time I think it’s over and autumn has definitely arrived, it goes and surprises me with another balmy hot weekend!
To make the most of the sunshine, a couple of weekends ago I took the kids and my Mum to discover Thurlestone Beach in South Devon. A few friends had recommended it but we love Salcombe so much that if we are traveling that far (about 1.5 hours from our house) we usually just go there.
But wowzers, I am so glad we took the time to discover somewhere new! Although the sand is a bit more gritty than Sandy Bay at Salcombe the amazing warm and shallow rock pools more than made up for that! The children absolutely loved it! A definite must visit if you are ever down this way!
