Sea air

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside
Oh I do like to be beside the Sea!
I do like to stroll upon the prom, prom, prom!
Where the brass bands play;
"Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside
Oh I do like to be beside the sea!
I'll be beside myself with glee
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
beside the sea!
Sorry folks, another singing post! I am busy catching up in the workroom with all the half finished embroideries I've been wanting to work on the last week. Late night stitching has it's drawbacks; not least I can't see to thread the needle, but so far I'm making progress! Three completed and four still in the basket.... well I keep adding more instead of finishing what's there!
Tomorrow the beautiful boy is finally back to school. Short days but hopefully he'll be well. And on Thursday I am off to the seaside - just for the day. It's been planned for a while. I haven't been to the coast all on my own for many years.
I'm really quite excited by the prospect. A quiet day strolling beside the seaside, beside the sea! t.x
