A Mini Break

Last weekend we finally managed to get a quick overnight trip to East Wittering, it's been two years since we last had a day out at the beach, what with being in lockdown for 2020 because of Covid and my mum having a stroke in April of this year

Boris was so exited when he realised we were packing up to go away in the camper van, he kept zooming around the house, barking and getting in everybodies way, the beach is probably his most favourite place of all time to visit
 

 Eko on the other hand took it all in his stride and sat watching Boris with a confused look on his face, probably because he's only been away to the beach with us once before, when he was approx a year old for a family reunion with his mum and sister
Eko had great fun that day, as did Boris


We made it to the campsite around lunchtime on the Sunday and got everything set up. Then it was off into the village to see our good friend Jane at Calamity Jane's coffee shop, we've often eat at Jane's as we're always offered a warm welcome and we've got to know each other really well over the years we've been camping at East Wittering

Then it was off to the beach to take a lovely long walk along the flat sand as the tide was out, as it got later we had the beach all to ourselves to watch the sun setting before heading back to the van for the night

It was approximately mid morning by the time we eventually woke up, we spent a couple of hours sitting outside the van enjoying the sunshine and reading whilst the dogs snoozed, we then took them for a lovely walk across the fields 

All too soon it was time to pack up the van and head home ready for Himself to start work again on Tuesday. I'm not sure if we'll get down there again this year as I'm pretty busy looking after my mum at the moment, but it was definitely worth going, even if it was only for 24 hours

I'd got to the point I really struggling and needed some time to myself, looking after a parent isn't easy and I was starting to become so overwhelmed by everything

I've now realised the importance of taking some time off for myself, our little trip to the seaside has certainly helped me feel a lot more relaxed and less stressed out by everything

  1. Badger and Ecko certainly seemed to have a lot of fun and what a spectacularly well timed photo! That's just brilliant. It can't be easy looking after a parent as well so I can see why you wanted a break.

Thank you so much for stopping by and we hope you enjoyed our post, we love comments and love to make new friends through blogging

Having had such a long break from blogging after we sadly lost the star of this blog Badger Boo, we're now excited to be back so you can get to know our new stars Boris and Eko

For the longest time we toyed with the idea of leaving the format the same, but in the end we realised it was that which was holding us back from returning to blogging again, it was just too hard

Boris and Eko will continue to carry on with Badgers legacy by telling all their stories from a dogs point of view, but I will also be blogging about life in general, reviews and much more as we move forward on our new style blogging adventures, as I no longer write my original blog "Me Myself and I"

At the moment we're enjoying finding our way around all the Blog Hops again, discovering new friends as well as catching up with some old ones

It's really great to discover that blogging is still very much alive and thriving as it was before our break xxx
