Dear Frugal Mums,
The weather is amazing and we are definitely making the most of where we live! We are so lucky to be about a 30 second walk from the seafront, so we spend half of our lives up the beach – but it is even better when we can ditch the thermals and enjoy the sunshine too! This time of year makes living on the coast brilliant fun.
Sometimes we take a picnic, but we decided today to just take some snacks and eat when we got back – we had a late breakfast of American pancakes so we were still really full up. We had a glorious day building sandcastles, playing rounders on the sand and jumping around in the waves to cool down. The children love the seaside and, even though we are up here daily with the dog, they never get bored! If you are near the seaside, or even a drive away, make the most of the weather – pack a picnic, slap on your suncream and pretend you’re on holiday abroad! Fun doesn’t have to cost a penny, and I have no doubt it will be our thousands of trips to the beach that they will remember when they’re older.
If you want to start your day with healthy American style pancakes check out my recipe – it works just as well with regular flour if you aren’t gluten free.
