Its holiday time and tomorrow the family and I are heading north to Skegness. Last time we visited this area was over a decade ago so I'm looking forward to exploring this part of Lincolnshire and getting some bracing North Sea air in my lungs!
I'm also looking forward to a relatively relaxing week away from the normal stresses of work and home. Better still I'm taking a pile of books and magazines away with me and I'm determined to spend as much time as possible just reading. I'll probably dip in and out of several books at the same time, but the aim is not to read something cover to cover like some sort of reading challenge. I just want to read for fun and to relax and if that means jumping from book to magazine to book, then so be it. And what am I taking with me... mostly Featherstone's of course! I've read most of them before but like I said this is reading for relaxation not as a chore.
I'll also be spending some time scouring local book and museum shops for new reading material. Other people buy sticks of Rock and Kiss-me-Quick hats at the British seaside, but I'm happiest when treating myself to new books or exploring local hobby stores. So there will be a temporary hiatus in posts on BigLee's Miniature Adventures, but only for a week. Rest assured I will have visited at least one museum while away and I always return home with hundreds of pictures to share.
