Summer Holidays

We seem to have an unenviable talent for picking the one week and the one destination with the worst weather of the summer and going there for our holiday. You may recall the great Caledonian Canal adventure from last summer. Feel free to revisit the scene, just click WET
This year was no different, apart from the fact that we were in Norfolk instead of the Scottish Highlands, and that we stayed in a house boat instead of a small cabin cruiser. But the rain was just as wet and the wind just as windy.

Loving the windswept look here. I realised a long time ago that the best way to avoid being in embarassing holiday snaps like this is to always be the one holding the camera.
However, one good thing about rubbish holidays is that you don't feel guilty about treating yourself to something special that you just happen to spot in little craft and antique centre on the last day of your holiday.
Just look at this little beauty.

Isn't she just the loveliest sewing machine you have ever seen ? Can you tell how excited I am ?

I even got the original instruction manual, packed full of handy sewing tips.

And... a full set of gadgets and gizmos and some very bizarre looking attachments which are just calling out to be put to good use.
Is it wrong that this is the high light of my holiday this year ?

Just to prove it's not all about me... Here's a saucy hot dog from Great Yarmouth sea front.

Oh dear - yes, you do seem to have a knack; but the Singer sewing machine looks fantastic. So glad you didn't drive all that way for no reward!!

If it's any consolation the weather hasn't been great here either. Just had friends stay for the weekend and I was cooking warming winter fare rather than salads and BBQing!
