Is it week 35? I am not sure. I think so but the pile of washing, the ENORMOUS to do list, the looming week of meetings, photoshoots and birthday parties to prepare for have rather befuddled my poor brain this morning so forgive me if I’ve got it all wrong!

This week’s happies:

∆ Please close the gate - we are so lucky to live in the midst of the beautiful West Oxfordshire countryside. This view is 100 paces from our front door. It makes me happy every time I see it.

∆ We had friends over last weekend to make sausages with the boys (more on that soon). After their culinary exploits and a barbeque to taste their produce, they whittled sticks to toast tiny marshmallows. A happy, lazy Saturday evening.

∆ Peonies - I adore them. And they look so striking in my Fish Pi pottery vase, bought on our recent trip to St Ives.

∆ Camping at Hay Festival with Louis. Again more on that soon. It rained the whole time we were there, but it was great fun.

Hope you’ve all had a happy week too. x
