Hello, I'm Chrissie. I can't get over how lucky I am to be living at the seaside, as more than ten years later I still love living at Cleveleys. I hope you enjoy my slightly cock-eyed look at life - come back regularly for a look at everyday life at the seaside, as I wander round from subject to subject. I can't help it but the weather often features, as do the ordinary things that we all do everyday, along with the very different things that you get to see and do here.
