We are going crab fishing off the harbour in Brixham.
We are going to eat fish and chips with seagulls whirling all around us goading us into throwing a few chips into the air.
We will have a paddle in the icy cold sea.
There will be sand castles.
We will drive over Dartmoor and I will point out the huge granite tors to a pair of uninterested children.
We will arrive at the lighthouse.
There will be a wifi connection that is reliable (yay!).
There will be photo's posted on the blog.
We will have pasta puttanesca cooked by eldest daughter.
There will be gin and tonic at the top of the lightouse for everyone over 18 (i.e. me).
There will be contemplation of impending 40th birthday ....but not in bad way.

Holiday happiness.


  1. Dilemma: One can have one's offspring prepare food for one. Maybe I should have one after all...? Do they also bring wine, or is that only the dog with opposable thumbs? ;o)

    Enjoy your vaca!

  2. 40 is'll love it, I promise !

  3. it sounds wonderful!

    and 40 is the new 30. trust me.

  4. Ext--they definitely bring wine and can even make a mean cocktail with the blender (that starts around age 7) if you give them some good ingredients (e.g. strawberries and lime juice and tequila).

  5. Sounds great... are you going to that little stretch of beach by the pier? I'm so jealous, I love that place.

    I look forward to the photos.

  6. Never see that place, but I'd like to... wait impatiently for pictures!!! Have fun!

  7. Sounds fantastic! I'm jealous! :)

  8. I am so going to start eldest off on cocktail making now I know this is possible. Dog can bring canapes as I am sure opposable thumbs are not necessary for this.
