6 months

041

As if through frost-covered glass

we peered.

Unable to scrape away

the thin ice we were skating on

between sadness and resignation.

The veil, lifted tentatively

with shaking hands,

revealed a world

seemingly unaltered;

yet changed forever.

Writing along with Amanda’s prompts over at The Habit of Being, today’s is ‘opaque’.

Cool breezes and cotton skirts

006

I am enjoying these summer days. After a dark and incredibly sad start to the year, the long days are suiting me, even more so knowing I will be at home a lot more over the coming weeks and a week at the seaside to look forward to.

I am enjoying the cool breezes. The blue skies that intermittently cloud over with grey, threatening rain that never really comes…just maybe a few spots here and there.

I am enjoying feeling freer. Sandals and cool cotton skirts are my summer getup,  I love the unrestricted feel of these clothes…especially on the really warm days.

I am enjoying our garden. The unplannedness {is that a word?} of it, watching the birds enjoy it and bees too. I really treasure our outside space.

I am enjoying summer despite a deep love for spring and autumn. I guess life is too short for a favourite season and each one should really be savoured.

What are you enjoying about summer?

Weekends

A t   t h e  ‘ H o p’

Weekend 11 12 July 2015

Sometimes working at the weekend just doesn’t feel like work!

This is he second Vintage Hop my colleagues and I have organised and it was absolutely fantastic…even the weather was kind to us! It was so good to see everyone tapping their feet to the music, browsing the vintage market and enjoying the vintage vehicles. There was also a brass band, children’s rides and some great make-do-and-mend workshops which included a tea party too!

My job is not always this glamorous, but I just wanted to share with you a little bit of it that is.

Sunday was spent relaxing and watching the tennis {Wimbledon Men’s Final). What a match that was!

Hope your weekend was good? Wishing you a happy week! xx

Fans and ice-lollies

Lovely end

Yesterday was seriously hot…cooking eggs on the pavement hot, airless, lung-filling heat, and even as darkness fell, still the heat hung.

Summer might have been a little late round these parts, but jeez, yesterday she certainly made up for it with the hottest day ever recorded in the UK for July.

However, despite much perspiring and huffing & puffing Mother Nature gifted us a very lovely sunset.

If it is hot where you are I hope you are managing to stay cool somehow, fans and ice-lollies are the order of the day here!
