Had some friends round for lunch .....

Another fabulous day. Got my car back at 12.15, and decided to go to New Quay. The heater is still crap, so wasted £20 as I expected. Brian hasn't a clue how much it will cost to clear out the heater rad, it depends how long it takes really to remove all the dashboard etc.

Emma had a great time again - it's lovely to see her having fun on the beach, I ought to go more often really - it's only 20 minutes if I get a good run. Would you believe the bloody tide was in again though? How come when it was high tide two days ago at the same time of day - it should be 4 hours difference today. Oh well, plenty of sand again, so no worries.

I bought some chips - mainly for Emma, I only ate a maximum of 8 of them, I was everso good, honest, but I don't particularly like proper chips, I prefer "fries" from MacDs, the french-style skinny ones, so it wasn't too much of a temptation. I had the most fab time throwing bits of them up in the air for the Black Headed gulls, I wish I had taken a loaf of bread with me, it's fantastic the way they catch them in mid air. I was grinning from ear to ear, good job nobody else around! (I guess I wouldn't have grinned if one had crapped all over me though) Sitting out on the harbour wall, it was really warm. Bought a few bits in the pound shop too, a flashing Santa (no, not that kind of flashing...!) He has a candle which flashes on and off, I don't know how long the batteries will last, but they are rechargeables anyway, bargain for a quid! He's busy flashing away now in the front window. ;o)

Lovely pics of the gulls. My dogs enjoy the beach too, but I don't get there often enough.
