Summer has arrived at last!! I usually have a tan by the beginning of May and I'm very behind! I've had a good crack at it this weekend though, and I am feeling sunkissed and healthy now. I don't sit out much as I get hot very easily (and it's not good to burn), but I seem to pick it up just going about my daily business. Mind you, my new bench under my new trellis is the perfect spot for catching some rays!
We have just had the most relaxing and lovely weekend that I've had in a long time. My parents came to stay and we had barbecues, walks in the Cotswolds, shandies in the garden, and a picnic in the woods. I feel like I've had a whole new lease of life after just 2 days of sun and relaxation!!
This photo was taken on one of the nicest walks I have ever done.The scenery reminded me of being in Canada - pine trees and sunshine!
It's just as well I relaxed last weekend because I am gearing up for another exciting event. On Saturday Curio's Emporium have organised a Pop-Up Vintage and Handmade Fair in one of my favourite pubs - The Swan on the High Street in Cheltenham. There are some great stallholders (aside from moi!), a barbecue and live music. It will be good fun, and I hope you can join me there. I'll be selling a mixture of vintage and handmade goods, so there will be something for everyone!
On a similar vein, thank you to everyone who has bought something from my Etsy Shop - I now know some of the Post Office tellers by name I've been there so often! Once I have recovered from Saturday I will be listing more delectable items for your perusal in my shop, so keep your eyes peeled.
Nest week is Half Term - hooray!! We are planning a few days at home and a few days down in sunny Cornwall (fingers crossed for beachy weather), and it can't come soon enough. We are having a Jubilee Tea Party at school on Friday and various other exciting events, which coupled with a few days last week in the Reception class has meant I am looking forward to a few days on a beach with my nose in a book and my feet in the sea!
Happy Summertime to you all!!!
