Summer's arrived!

Just when we thought winter would never end, summer has officially arrived. Already you can see that people have a certain spring in their step, and it won’t be long until we all start spilling out into parks, back gardens and taking long strolls in the sunshine.

Now that the sun’s out (well, some of the time) I’m going to be making the most of the great outdoors because it’s only when the dark nights start looming again that I realise just how much I appreciate the gorgeous light evenings and the laid back atmosphere.

Every summer I find myself being so busy with work that it’s only when it gets to September that I realise I’ve let most of it pass me by in a rushed blur. So I’m determined to take time to smell the daffodils and maybe - and my mum will be very pleased about this - learn a thing or two about gardening.

As I live in London, my garden is just about big enough to squeeze a small nice table and chairs in and still have room for a few pots here and there, so I don’t think I’ll become the next Alan Titchmarsh overnight. But rather scarily I’ve reached an age where I want to start growing things myself instead of buying everything from the supermarket. And in these credit crunch times if I can grow a few vegetables here and there and save myself a few pennies, even better!

  • Here’s where it’s at!

    My boyfriend and I decided we were desperate to get away for a few days and relax recently, and by complete coincidence an email popped into my inbox from my friend Kate telling me about an amazing deal she’d found to Spain. For £170 each, her and her boyfriend were going away for a four day all-inclusive break in a four star hotel and she asked if we fancied going along.
