Summer holidays: Pine cones, roses, lazy days, lemon sherberts, tottering piles of books, picnics, Victoria sponge cake, tartan rugs, muddy wellingtons, ┬ádamp anoraks, salads, less but more, pots of tea, lashings of ginger beer, board games, walking, running, caring, but not caring, watching, listening, breathing. All summed up in this tiny cottage in Scotland that says come to me with it’s open arms of nostalgia and the warm embrace of simpler times.

This is the joy of summer.

And so it happens..

What did you have for Brexit today? I would like to be a million miles away, living the simple life on a beach, being independent, fulfilled and carving out my own little bit of happiness far away from contagious groupthink.

But that’s me.

Sadly I only have the urban equivalent.

Free to Roam..


The wander-lust is strong today.  Despite spotting my first snowdrops on the way to school drop-off this morning, spring and summer still seem a long way off and the routine feels monotonous.


I just want to pack our bags and head off in a vintage jaguar with crinkled beige leather seats.


I don’t care if it’s a trip to the crisp, cold mountains.


But truth be told, I’d prefer somewhere with colour and sun.

Somewhere where life is simple.

It’s probably to much builders dust and not enough vitamin D..
