Last week, we soaked up the end of Summer with family in Southbourne. My parents in law have just moved there, swapping city life in London for a peaceful retirement by the sea. On our first evening there, we took the short walk to the beach to enjoy the sunset and a swim. I did the honourable thing and looked after Ruby so that everyone else could swim!

John and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary while we were in Southbourne, and thanks to kind grandparents, we enjoyed celebrating with a meal out by ourselves. It was a wonderfully restful week, and I am excited at the prospect of many more family holidays here over the coming years. I am particularly looking forward to watching as Ruby transitions from being a baby who loves to eat sand, to a child who loves to build sandcastles and swim in the sea.
