SPRING springs to mind...on the seaside


We've just had a couple of days of really warm weather so we decided to finally do something different on a Sunday. We set off nice and relatively early (meaning midday) after we all got together at ours, had coffee, said hello to the in-laws, etc. etc. all very Italian.

We got some traditional freshly made 'focaccia' and some beers and went to one of the countless beautiful beaches along the South coast to find that the sand had disappeared during the winter months, so we chose the alternative to the rocks and jumped the fence that separated us from an unused 'chalet'.

 These structures are full of life (some of them oh so trendy!, you have to be seen there) during the summer months but suffer from an state of abandon in colder periods, only to be re-structured again come May-June...well I guess it was lucky for us, we had a lovely day relaxing right by the sea, surrounded by friends and food and we left the place 'better than it was before', a non-written code of the 'good squatter' ;-)

Relaxing Sunday                                                                                                                        
But that was yesterday; today was another story.                                                                       I've been meaning to put this unique spring-y African wax print handbags up in the shop since Friday and haven't been able to find a suitable zip for them, what a mission! I've visited 3 different shops, one of them didn't have the colour I wanted (very hard to find brass, only gold and silver, agh!), another one was closed this morning (shops are closed Monday morning!) and by the time I finally managed to finish one of the two clutches I was planning to make, it was too late to take pics with natural light, so it's going to have to wait till tomorrow, again. PATIENCE and BREATH OUT.
