The other weekend we went out for a day to the seaside, which is supper exciting as we haven’t been to the coast for along time, so both my boys were super happy at the prospect.
We went to Dorset as it wasn’t the closest and it had sandy beach as my hubby does not like stoney beach, lol.
We went to a local coastal town called Lymington which was lovely quaint town. We popped into a lovely little tea room and had some delicious sandwiches.
Then we decided to have a stroll around the town and take it easy. We obviously we had to have ice-cream as it is the law when you away. We came to a real cool decorated ice-cream parlour, I just love the fun balloon lights.
Their ice-cream is one of the best we have ever had. My sons love bubblegum ice-cream natural but when they saw the bubble gum ice-cream cone that blew their tiny little minds.
It was lovely to just take our time and look around at the shops. We even got to see a gold letter box, which both my boys loved.
As you can see there was plenty of visual features to see. I am so easily distracted by quirky buildings and what not.
We then ventured on to a boat yard, and that smell takes me to so many happy memories of vising the sea side. There were seagulls and then general hustle and bustle of day to day life of fisherman and all that kind of thing.
The man in the above photo attracted my son’s attention as he was doing a bit of water-colouring.
We then travelled to a local beach (Avon) as you can’t beat a visit to the beach. Even though it looked overcast it was pleasantly warm.
My boys enjoyed jumping on the waves and building sandcastles. Luckily we didn’t visit during the heatwave period as it was fairly quite which I enjoy more as there is less noise and chaos about. (yeah I know anti-social but true).
Sadly, we only stopped for the day but it was a good day none the less and both boys returned home full of happy memories.

Have you remembered to forward your clocks? Isn’t it wonderful to get lighter evenings now and I am happy for this change, let me tell you why?
I suppose the first obvious reason why daylight saving time is good because it is lighter evenings and lovely to see the beautiful sunsets you get during summer time.
It is lovely to have more motivation as there is more light, which means getting more things doing.
Having more time to see things in the evening if I am out and about.
I really enjoy the calm of the lighter evenings, especially if it is dry and you can go for a lovely evening stroll.
Better change (if dry) to eat Al fresco, especially if it is a picnic at the park, makes my boys in particular super happy.
For a parent the dream of having a quicker time to get the washing dry, meaning more loads completed in a smaller time is the dream!
That being said you don’t need to live your home if you have some open space, a lot more quitter for us parents and the boys play together outside without getting under your feet. Which is always an added bonus 😉
I find that if my boys are out playing in the fresh air later in the evening they sleep better during the night-time.
You feel happier when it is lighter and less likely to want to stay in watch TV, maybe because you are more energetic.
Have more desire to get out of the house and less sluggish.
During the light times the golden hour is a beautiful time to take attractive photos.
With the lighter mornings you’re more motivated to get up and not need as much sleep during the lighter months.
What things do you like about Daylight Saving Time?
