Short break to Filey!…

Just back from a short break to Filey. We arrived in the afternoon and there was a couple of short down pours, then it turned into a lovely evening! Perfect for an evening cliff top stroll. Then the next 3 days were hot and sunny with beautiful blue skies! I know! I couldn’t believe it either! I’d packed wellies and long sleeve tops, thinking it would be grey and blowing a gale, and it was quite the opposite! Had to buy a hat and suncream! My poor face is sunburnt under all my makeup! Lovely not to have to set an alarm and have a cooked breakfast every morning! Lots of seafront and cliff top walks, drinks and ice creams stops! Caught a bus into Scarborough, i much preferred it down at the North Bay away from the arcades. Beautiful beach. People were very friendly too! Although that might be because we had a dog with us, she loved playing on the beach and having a dip! The number of times we were stopped for a natter and dog petting requests lol.

My favourite part of the holiday was doing the cliff top walk from where we were based to Filey beach, which i believe is about 2.5 miles. Although doing it on the hottest day of the year it felt about 4 miles! The scenery is just stunning! I really had never realised just how beautiful an area this is! I have some gorgeous photos, you could easily think they were taken in Greece or somewhere! Not good ol’ Filey! In future i will not turn my nose up at East Coast holidays! I feel a yearly ritual coming on! I am a creature of habit after all!

Until next time,

Strictly’s back!….

So glad to have Strictly back on our screens! If you have read my previous blogs you will know I really enjoy the show and have a Saturday night ritual of a get together with friends, food and a drink or two.

I’ll be honest when I first saw the line up, I did think oh dear and was not really impressed. However having watched the pairing up show and getting to know them a little, I have warmed to them!

Tameka was so funny, she has a great personality! I suspect she has good rhythm too. It was difficult in the group dance to spot them all so I can’t be sure! I think Judge Rinder is going to be quite a character too. I don’t know why but I have a feeling he’s going to be really bad at dancing…sorry Judge!. I think Will is going to be good at the ballroom, and I caught a glimpse of Ore in the group dance, I think he will be good! I thought I was short at 5ft, Claudia the gymnast is 4ft 7″!! I would imagine she would be very graceful and have good arms! Ed Balls, what can I say, apart from he really looks like my Dad. Random but true.

Who do I think will go far? Louise, Laura, Claudia, Ore and Melvin. That’s my prediction, let’s see if I’m even close!
