Word of the Week #30

There is only one word I can use this week and that is

word of the week sand

As I mentioned in last week’s post, we headed to the beach to enjoy the sunshine that afternoon and as always, seemed to bring most of it home with us. And then, when the sun disappeared for a couple of days, started our teacher gift project – making sand bowls!

I’ll write more about this in another post, but suffice to say that there was a lot of mess and sand everywhere. And they took days to dry so have been on my mind most of the week as I worried that they might not be ready in time! Thankfully, with the help of lots more sunshine, they were and were delivered intact (as far as I know, at least!).

And, as the sun set on Bunny’s last day of school, we had a meal overlooking the beach before ice cream on the steps leading down to it and running and dancing on the sand. And with the first full day of the holidays, we spent a fantastic afternoon on yet another beach, filling the pockets of our sun tent with more sand to prevent it taking off in the refreshing breeze and yet again bringing lots of sand home with us.

I love the beach, I love that we have sand here, not shingle, but I also hate how sand gets into everything – all the food and drink, my phone, and even two little bottoms: filled with slightly sweaty, damp sand that has to be cleaned away before bed else even the sheets are blessed with a fine layer of it!

  1. That made me laugh, especially that photo. I know every year on holiday we’re amazed at how quickly the sand gets into everything and how far it seems to travel.
    The sand bowls sound amazing.

  2. I love the beach, but you are right about sand, it does manage to spread everywhere. I often find sand hidden somewhere, weeks after I’ve been near a beach x

  3. I totally agree with you! Sand is a ruddy nightmare but I don’t think I would have it any other way – I love the beach 🙂 Thank you for linking to PoCoLo 🙂 x

  4. Oh, I am a teensy bit envious of you living so close to the beach. If we did, we’d be down there practically every day or evening I think. And what a great idea for a thank you gift too 🙂

  5. Oh, I love that sandy photo – made me laugh! Sand does get everywhere, and whilst I like the beach, the sand does drive me mad. We’ve just had a sandpit, and the kids basically cover each other in it! Those sand bowls look fab, too 🙂 Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  6. I want to learn how to do the bowl! We live near the beach and every after visit it seems like we do have a kilo of sand with us. Its everywhere in the house lately too! #PoCoLo

    haha it does get everywhere doesn’t it? I’ll be back to find out about the sand bowls! #pocolo

  9. That photo is brilliant!!! Absolutely made me chuckle xx

  10. I do think that sand is the only real downside to the beach but pebbles are just not the same. Lucky you to live so near to the sea. Fabulous photo of your little one, made me chuckle 😉

  11. Oh sand…the infamous mineral to get into absolutely ever crevice and nook POSSIBLE! Oh how I hate it, but damn that photo is brilliant!! lol!
