I do love this spell of good weather – business has been booming!
Sandals and trousers being the top sellers this week.  In particular our Marble wide leg trousers as pictured below.  These have an elasticated waist with a side split at the bottom of the leg.  Very summery and great for this weather and holidays.  This print is also available as a skirt.
I was planning to get into the loft to get the fan down to take across to the shop, but now it has started raining and the wind has picked up!  Ever the optomist, I think I’ll still do that anyway, in preparation for the weeks ahead.  I hope it doesn’t come to much – imagine being at the Isle of Wight Festival!  It’s all part of the fun I guess.  We can actually hear the faint beats of the drums where we live, and I am really annoyed with myself as I missed the Red Arrows display.
I managed to get out into the garden and tend to some of the weeds and enjoy the sunshine.  My hanging baskets are really coming on now, obviously thriving in the sunshine – unfortunately, so is the grass!
I met with a really old friend and work colleague on Friday – we haven’t seen each other since before Covid.  We had so much to catch up with and whilst lots of changes have taken place, it was like we had seen each other just yesterday!  When you know someone so well, you are on each others wavelength and we were soon laughing and joking, teasing each other and reminiscing about “the old days”.  We won’t need to leave it so long until next time.
It’s Father’s Day today – I hope you will be spoiling the men in your lives, whilst sparing a thought for those of us whose father’s are no longer here.  A day to appreciate and reflect.
I always try to focus on the happy times, particularly when my dad used to tickle me and try to kiss me until we’d collapse into a heap of giggles.  I used to complain that his stubble scratched my face – I wouldn’t complain now…. it’s been 23 years since he died.  I’m sure he’d be very proud of me.  I’m always sad that he didn’t get to meet George, but we make sure we tell George all about him.
It’s OK – I’m not sad – I’m grateful for the time we had and the memories I cherish.  It makes you appreciate those that are here – even when they do drive you crazy!
Have a good week.  Look out for each other and be kind.
Sending you lots of love, good health and best wishes.
