If I had a cottage...











If I had a cottage it would be filled with family cottage memories , there would be a pier to jump off, a terrace to enjoy sunsets, a cosy living room to watch the whales go by, a few vintage pennants, an apron sink, a few crosswords, a quiet inlet to learn to kayak and a calming sea to dream by.

Oh to dream... I have come to the conclusion that small and perfect is so much better than rambling and
unfinished! A small weatherboarded cottage with a watery view and rolltop bath - yes please; Lovely post thanks.
