If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I am now the proud owner and resider of a beach hut. If your a follower, on here, you might remember me mentioning my absence from Instagram and consequently what had caused this here
. There was one other reason which i couldn’t reveal just yet, purely because I was so excited, and that was my beach hut.
Back in February, we received a phone call to say that we had the opportunity to get our hands on a beach hut at our favourite and usual beach spot at WestBrook Bay. We instantly got excited at just the thought of it and so immediately started thinking of all the things we’d want or need in there, what colour we would paint it, whereabouts on the bay it would be, etc. It was a moment of sheer excitement, and we surrendered to a greater force of utter euphoria; along with surrendering to the urge of hopping in the car and speeding it to the bay, which was insanely windy and literally blew the winter cobwebs away!
As i said, that was in February so this has been in the works for a few months now, and has taken up a lot of time and energy preparing for. Every spare moment since that phone call has gone towards accumulating all our necessary bits and bobs for it. This included numerous trips to IKEA, Dunelm, Costco, TKMaxx, ASDA home, and a lot of DIY stores, as well as the unhealthy amount of online spending on my bank account. We’ve spent a lot of evenings down at the hut -mostly in pjs-, fixing shelves, hanging curtains, signs, putting together camping equipment and furniture,etc. It has been a fun project which the whole family has been involved with, along with some family friends also.
Throughout this time, I have taken numerous photographs as well as some videos to make a neat little compilation for you all to have a peak of the process; this being the first of the series. The summer season for beach-hutters
is from 1st April-30th September, so be warned lots of beachy posts coming your way!
What are your plans for the summer season?
Cheerio for now!
