What a lovely day

Today I returned with my sister to our home town of Barry Island.
The home of one half of:
Gavin and Stacey

Today's outfit was:

All old, apart from moccasins from New Look.
Umbrella: Vintage
Neckscarf: New York 6 years ago
When I started blogging a mere few months ago, I wrote about my love for a denim shirt dress and how it is my "go to" item. Here is an example. I needed an outfit, I went to this trusty little number and changed it up a bit with the below bits and pieces.

Here's a little look at today:

Neo looovvess strawberries

Maddy my eldest niece and my handsome step son Talyn, with their tubs of chips

classic chips with lashings of salt & vinegar

Lillie pickle waiting patiently for a chip :)

A ride on the tea cups

Hook a duck, prize every time!

It was lovely to be back visiting my old home town. We were on the parade eating chips in tubs and the kids played peacefully and merrily around us.  It reminded me of days gone by where it was my sister and I running around and licking our 99 ice-creams.
Then later on the heavens opened and we had to make a quick departure and fled towards our cars.
Just one if those beautiful days of happiness....Off to go snuggle with my hubby, he's jealous, He thinks I love my blog more than him(close call ;)

 Hope your Monday was filled with muchos muchos happiness too!
