Wish you were here….

sandcastle.jpgSo i have been having my enforced little holiday between uni ending (v stressful week indeed) and starting temping next week for the summer. So C and I went to Dawlish for the day which is a bit like Butlins without a big fence around it.
This is what i spent all afternoon making. Notice mine and nipper’s matching poses….

We also had a spare even littler nipper with us courtesy of a very busy mum. I gave it my best Posh Beckham look (does this baby make me look fat??). Couldn’t help noticing all the looks you get when people think you’re a single mum (it goes like this – look at SGT, notice buggy and or toddler attached to hip, check out left hand for a ring, find nothing, sneer and think they haven’t noticed).

    Gosh, I never ever think to check for rings, I just smile and remember to be safe crossing the road so I’m not a bad example to the nippers!

    Great matching poses tho, you can tell who’s the role model there!

    its a generational thing i reckon. there were lots of grannies down here.

  3. Pete Says:

    She really is! You can understand why they’d think you were related, but the ring checking is silly! People are so judgmental! x

  4. sungirltan Says:

    I always spend far too much time making silly faces at the kids and doing magic tricks to notice the single mums and their marital status…. the mums usually tut and smile at me (apparently it’s criminal but endearing to cheer up grumpy sunburnt children)….. πŸ™‚

    Incidentally, since you and said nipper are both in the photo does that mean that it was the little blondie that took the piccy or is she buried under the sandcastle?

  11. nikki Says:

    little blondie who’s name is Poppy is asleep in her buggy just out of shot. she missed the entire sandcastle event sadly.
