As a child we never had holidays away and this pattern unintentional but due to the circumastances of being a single Mum my children's holidays were also at the local beach apart from 2 holidays before my ex DH left me and one holiday to the south of france after the insurance paid up after a burglary, I blew the money on a holiday for myself and my 2 sons. It wasn't a very successful holiday as we discovered my eldest son hated the heat so wanted to spend all day in a darkened caravan and moaned all the time and I was lonely and missed adult company!
Sadly cannot find the photos :(
But after marrying Peter I found these photos, Iain and a friend at our local beach, obviously wasn't hot!!
These photos was when Mark was 16. He was a real entrepeneer. He decided to run an icecream business selling on our local beach ( away from any town)
