When someone mentions the word "childhood", what image does it conjure up? I always think about those special memories such as summer holidays - particularly those spent on the east coast of England - along with the big waves, freezing sea, home-made pasties and sand-riddled sandwiches. This image of 2 of my sons, was taken during one such holiday on the Suffolk coast. They'd been happily splashing around in the grey, choppy North sea, seemingly unaware of how bitingly cold it was! Inevitably, the presence of a large, grey cloud and the increasingly blustery wind convinced them it was time to perhaps dry off and pursue less sea-based activities!
This blog post is different to my normal one, as I have joined a blog hop to highlight the fact that until 30th August, Worldvision will have all funding matched by DFID . Every £1.00 donated during this time will be matched by the government and will go towards longterm projects to help rescue the lost childhoods and build a better future for children in West Africa.
Any amount, large or small, can be donated via the Worldvision website.
I'm tagging 2 other bloggers so they can, if they wish, continue to spread the word:

I'm not sure about you but we're a little bit fed up of the gloomy weather lately....so what better way to cheer ourselves up than the launch of a brand new range of personalised party bags?
We absolutely love these brightly coloured fabric party bags. They are personalised with a printed label in vivid congtrasting colours to create maximum impact. Each bag is unique as it is given its own colour combination, so each child has something different.
They make lovely wedding activity bags and gift bags as well as luxury party bags.
The What's On For Little Ones Junior Awards ceremony took place last month at the lovely Hilton Avisford hotel in West Sussex.
Thanks to your votes, I was lucky enough to be one of the 3 finalists in the "Best Children's Party Supplier" category. The competition was fierce, and I'm sorry to say that I didn't win, although when the time came it was quite a relief! The thought of having to stand on a stage and deliver a slick acceptance speech without shaking, swearing and bursting into tears was...well, let's just say I'm sure I would have done as least 2 out of 3!
The awards ceremony was a great experience for me and I'm really glad that I went, especially as all the finalists were also presented with their own framed certificate.
