The Beach House is in a crayfishing town not too far from The Farm. I must be honest and say I love being a town dweller for a little while. When you live in the middle of nowhere and cook every meal your family eats, something as simple as a fish and chip shop seems extremely luxurious. I even relish being able to food shop every day, and buy on whim, rather than doing the mammoth food shops I do when we are at home on The Farm.
The Farmer and the male half of the extended family went fishing yesterday. They didn't catch a huge number of fish but there was plenty for dinner.

Today I had a quiet wander around the local shops. Having a house full had made me realise The Beach House was a bit light on in the mug department. Nothing is more annoying than having to wash a cup when you want a coffee...
There is a gorgeous kitchen shop in town and I popped in and found these.

I love having lots of colour in The Beach House. I know the lovely lady who owns the kitchen shop. I met her a couple of years ago when I had to stock out The Beach House kitchen. She was really helpful at the time and gave me lots of freebies. Anyway, today when I went in and picked up these mugs she smiled and commented that she had thought of me when she stocked them! I took this as a strong sign from the Shopping Gods. So the coffee mugs are now living happily in the cupboard.
I also found the latest Country Style at the News Agent. Like the blog it seems to have adopted a beachy theme for January.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful few days holiday and that you are all happily winding down after Christmas.
