The Perfect Holiday

I've been absent on Blogger due to being away on holiday in heaven itself.

We went to Newquay in Cornwall and quite frankly it is now my most favourite place in the world EVER!

It's clean, hot, bright, beautiful, friendly (with out being intrusive), sandy, surfy, and generally full of amazingly HOT surfer dudes and amazing places to eat, drink and generally be entertained. My own personal Utopia. I want to live there forever.  We stayed 100 yards from Fistral Beach which was adorned daily with hundreds of surfers and sunbathers and we loved it. We also found a fabulous bar that overlooks the harbour with a softplay and completely child friendly called  'The Fort Inn'. We had lovely lunches there on the balcony and Caleb made lots of little friends in softplay.

Things I learnt and will stay with me is hairbrushing/straightening and general faffing is worthless. Hairbrushes are now the enemy and ankle bracelets and general adoring of cheap jewellery makes you bright cheerful and feel Cute.

Here's some piccies of our stay. Looking at them has made me melancholy.

We found the most immense cake shop which made marshmallows on sticks.
