Here I am, here I am! How do you do?

I'm back! Did you miss me? I was a bit disappointed that none of you contacted the police or anything. I have been awol for three whole weeks, you know!

As you should be able to tell from these photos, I had a fabulous time turning 30 in Scarborough. I've just been trying to sort out photos and have literally hundreds, most of which I want to share here. I'll be back again (and again and again) throughout the day with vaguely themed Scarborough posts. This post's theme is... me having a good time in Scarborough!

From the top...

1. Jumping for joy at the colourful beach huts;

2. Enjoying an extravagant knickerbocker glory at the Harbour Bar (more pictures of that fabulous place to follow);

3. Pretending our neighbour's birthday banners had been put there for me (I can thoroughly recommend holidaying in a typical pensioners' destination if you are feeling old. There were lots of people in our hotel celebrating their birthdays, but most of them were turning 70 or 80. I was really just a wee slip of a spritely thing at 30!);

4. Riding on the big wheel;

5. Celebrating my brave (and uncharacteristic) birthday solo dance in the middle of an empty dance floor. Graham described my dancing as "very aerobic" and it must have been pretty impressive as I even got a round of applause from the other guests and made friends with a group of dance-mad ladies from Blantyre, who invited me to hang out with them so I wouldn't have to dance solo any more. Tee hee! I know Graham will be none too pleased by this picture's inclusion, but I figured (now we are both official grown-ups) that we shouldn't be embarrassed by the fact we are not that photogenic...
We are total hotties in real life, after all :)


  1. I was actually just thinking last night how you hadn't blogged in ages. Looks like you had an awesome time - happy birthday!

  2. Thanks for noticing! :) It's been quite nice to have a break, actually, even though I didn't mean to. I'll soon be back into the swing of things, I'm sure.

  3. Hurrah! You're back! I can cancel the missing person posters now... ;-) Looks like you had an amazing time and I'm glad your finding thirty to be so liberating! x

  4. Ha! Thanks :)

    I am actually rather enjoying being 30. After being so depressed at the prospect, I haven't worried about it once since it actually happened. Going away for the big day was definitely the best idea. All the best people are 30 anyway ;)
