Beach life

Thoughts from a Cornish beach

You know you are getting older when:

You choose your perfect spot on the beach so it’s not too far from the loos…

You need just a little extra cream than before for those upper arms and hips…

You can no longer hold your stomach in for the whole walk from the ice cream van back to your towel…

You love wearing a wetsuit. What’s not to like? It’s an all-body Spanx. Looking good…

You calculate the effort it takes to get the wetsuit off must burn off equivalent calories to an ice cream/cream tea/double gin…

Your eye is irresistibly drawn to those young tanned men in red and yellow and you find yourself contriving to have a Mrs Robinson near-drowning experience…

You take a closer look at the young tanned men in red and yellow and find yourself wondering how a boy fresh out of school could possibly rescue a full-grown woman.

Gin? Lovely, make mine a double…

Talking of gin, I must recommend this gin which my lovely friend Lucy told me about and I have recommended to several other gin drinkers since: Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s Bathtub gin. Deeeliciuosss but currently only available to buy online.
