For many years, a Sunday institution for myself and Mum, has been a visit to Bumbles cafe on River Drive, Budds Beach.
Mum and I have been treating ourselves to their heavenly delights since it was a teeny tiny hole in the wall twelve years ago. Now extremely popular and having to expand their premises, it has still retained all of its charm and appeal.
Not only do they serve the best coffee on the coast, it provides loads of interior inspiration...with its photo wallpaper and lace paper chandeliers...
...a perfect private room for you and the girls! Did I mention that it is always stocked to the brim with fresh flowers..?
It gets better...a sweets display to tempt you...if the cakes haven't already.

From inside you can take in its magical location. You would never believe you are footsteps away from the bustling glitter strip.
Mum and I tucked in a cosy corner...notice the antique birdcages hanging from the eaves outside...I told you it was charming.
And when you think you can't girly it up anymore...you can drag yourself and your smiling belly into Suga Suga - a to die for gift and interiors emporium.
The girls in here are always there to greet you with a warm smile and a chat.
Yes, right up our alley...white, white and more white!
Aaah, I can't wait until next Sunday already.
P.S. Apologies of you think I have been absent, but I (along with many others from what I have been reading) cannot comment on anyone's blog!!! Very frustrating as I love telling you all how much I enjoy reading your posts. I will keep on trying...
