Summer Holidays!

Ahh the stressful economy airline delays, the cries of 'are we there yet?', my children (and I) only taking sandals and it pouring with rain for two days - it must be our summer holiday to france!

Seriously though, we had a lovely time staying with mon mere and mon pere en france. It was the first time I have seen their 'project'  - a gite that was pretty dilapidated a year ago and now just plain pretty.

Last year we went 5* in Mauritius but it matters not to my little monkeys - sitting on the back of a sit down lawnmower late in the evening in rural france tops the charts for them which says a great deal.

 And they adored swimming in the overground pool with views over the farmland...

And exploring outside as boys do...

But we all enjoyed roaming around the weekly market and the resulting lunch so much that I won't dwell too long on the four hour delay due to lightening striking the plane and will instead look into ferry crossings...

Monday Brights - Red White & Blue

I don't know if it's my current obsession with all things nautical or the fact that I'm off to france in ten days but I love this red white & blue silk cushion made by London Kills Me from Rockett St George.
In the sale for £19!

Happy Monday xx
