Week away in Suffolk

Well, that was a lovely week off together.  It was our 15th wedding anniversary last week so we took off for the caravan in Suffolk.  We were sooo lucky with the weather, sunshine every day!  On our first evening all the flying ants came out so the birds filled the air to eat them - it was very "The Birds"...

Before we left I did a search for dog walks and found a great resource on, we had some amazing hikes with Dusty and I'll post about these separately as they justify their own posts to show you the beautiful landscapes and forests we discovered.

We also had a fun time in Southwold and took Dusty onto the pier

This clock is a piece of sculpture, and you might not be able to see, but has a person taking a bath at the top, that water then travels to the level below where two men drop their trousers and "pee" into a pot, which then tips down into the bottom level and moves the clock!  Very funny...

 Dusty loves taking trips in the car :)

feel that wind in my hair
I also had a few thrifty finds this time round, this cute bag (it's darker than it looks here) with studded detailing, the strap needs replacing but that shouldn't be a problem I think, and it's perfect for Autumn...

some cute printing blocks, the LB are metal, the W, wooden...

and this pretty crystal perfume bottle, it has an opalescence to it

and a huge bag of buttons for craft projects  :)

Walks tomorrow :) x
