Hello there and how are you?

We have returned from a very relaxing and much needed week at the Lakes, batteries recharged {almost} and raring to go! Well, there may still be a little residual holiday-ness hanging around, but as I am not back to work until Tuesday, I’d say that’s totally acceptable, yes?

We were in a small yet perfectly formed 18th Century cottage, very close to Windermere, surrounded by hills and more green than I ever thought possible! Trevor has sniffed his way through the week…new places are so exciting for a dog!

We have had lazy mornings {lazy days sometimes, truth be known}, walks, visits to beautiful places and just generally inhaled and ingested all the loveliness surrounding us…it’s been a tonic.

That said, I am not sad to be home. I have absolutely loved & appreciated the break and the way time spent somewhere else forces you to slow down {we have been snails} but returning home always feels right.

I hope you have had a lovely week and wish you a great weekend.

Peachy

Peachy

The ‘big’ fan has been retrieved from the shed and all the windows are pushed wide open. Sandals can at last be worn legitimately and the air con went straight on when I arrived at work this morning. Peaches are being scoffed, salads too.

There is a feeling of winding down…a longing for time off and slow mornings. Thoughts of our holiday in August…I can almost taste the salty air and feel the sand between my toes.

Summer has decided to show up…a little late to the party, but we won’t mention it.
