Summertime, and the living is easy

And as a result I've been neglecting the blog.

Following a wonderfully relaxing weekend in Wiltshire (good food, large gardens to keep the children entertained, reading the weekend papers in straw hats, admiring the vegetable patch and catching up with good friends) Monday saw Boy's first Sports Day. The girls and I cheered him on in amazing heat and we were all shattered by the end of the day.

My sister has been over pulling together the final UK details of her wedding so yesterday we had a girly day in Bath. First Mum, Sis and I all had our hair cut and coloured before heading to Jamie Oliver's new(ish) restaurant to enjoy some Italian antipasti on the terrace. I love Bath in the Summer the honey coloured stone buildings always look so warm and inviting and there is a great vibe - especially at the moment before the tourists pour in in their masses! Then (after making the kid's supper - reality check!) I had a girly supper with friends, drinking fizz and eating more antipasti in their garden.

It's no wonder I haven't sat in front of the computer for a couple of days. Another baby has been born and I still haven't made any of the gifts I planned, I've got oodles of things to be doing and making before THE wedding - now only 3 weeks away, and I still haven't read my new edition of Country Living.

Thank goodness the rain has returned today!
