hello lovely new readers and hello again old readers...I decided the other day, that my soul needed to be by the sea. I ventured down to the coast, after the train journey from hell we finally got to Broadstairs, probably not as picturesque as i remember from my childhood, but it was great to paddle in the sea and feel the sand between my toes. As a gift my brother bought me a battered mars bar...we use to have them as a child oh the memories. 
I discovered some wonderful little antique shops and the 50p boxes were filled with treasure i bought a few things, i will be sharing them later in the week. I took a ridiculous amount of pictures and i spent a crazy amount of 2ps in the amusement arcade i was so good at the slot machine that i used up all the paper tokens that come out of the machine when you win....i have finally found my calling in life ha!


  1. I have never had a mars bar in batter before....I really can't imagine what it tastes like. 50p boxes??? awesome....I can't wait to see what you bought.

  2. I really like that first picture, its sooo pretty!

  3. Yay I love Broadstairsss it's like 20 mins away! xx

  4. God I love battered Mars bars, have a real craving for one now!! And looks like a lovely day, sometimes I just like popping down to the sea front for a walk, its invigorating! Oooo, I love 60p boxes, I bought a Slow King from one *pokemon nerd, please ignore that!*
