A beautifully hot day. Really truly like summer is still here. So another lunchtime in the park.

Jen for dinner. But not for ages. I respect a friend that doesn’t stick around for hours.

And most importantly, my nephew is on the way! After pooing in the womb.

A gloriously hot afternoon that felt like the middle of summer again. I lay in the park and took in the beautiful blue sky.

Sending the young french woman a reassuring message. Through Jo.

A clean bed, a clean kitchen and a clean bathroom. Clean clean clean.

I get to look after Penny, the tiny dog that is more eyes than face, next weekend!

Board games. Winning at board games.

Sitting in the sun in the park again.

Also, shopping quietly and on my way, being nice to myself was lovely too. And I deserve four nice things today.

Relaxing in the sun at lunchtime. It was a lovely temperature today. You could sunbathe a bit without being too hot.

Sitting next to Keith. Such a positive and lovely guy. He really made today nice.

Swimming. Swim swim swimming.

The ladies pond. Oh it was so lovely. Swimming next to ducklings and with herons swooping along next to us. Getting over my fear. Being in a women only space. Sunbathing with my boobs out. It was perfect.

Sunbathing in the park with Jonny followed by showing him the delicious organic shop. And just spending time with him like normal.

Doing the puzzle and listening to the radio with Jonny in the evening. Everything felt relaxed and lovely. Exactly how a Sunday should feel. Even if Claudia didn’t read out our boring message.

Accidentally taking a sneaky photo of a colleague with the flash on. Thank god she didn’t notice.

The sun came out at lunch again. Another sunbathing-in-the-park lunchtime.

Making four pairs of pants in the beautiful studio.

All the white butterflies that are around right now. They’ve been fluttering past me for weeks and I keep forgetting that they are one of the things that make me smile. But they always do.

Feeling relaxed and horny in the park, sunbathing, with a nipple poking out my bikini to see what’s happening.

A little wander around the SGR shops and getting this new plant. Please don’t let me kill this one.

Going out in the glorious sun to measure pollution levels in adventure playgrounds. Which obviously included going on a zipwire and climbing up some huge wooden climbing frames.

More park sunbathing at lunchtime. Will this ever not make me happy?

Sacking off my evening plans and coming home to wash and wax and sit in my PJs on my own. Total bliss. Plus a background of Liam Gallagher live.

Going outside for 20 minutes at lunch after being in a fairly natural light free room all morning. So good to warm up too. Who would have thought that we’d need heaters on in such glorious weather? Such powerful air-conditioning.

Leaving work early and sitting in the park. Again.

Baguette legs.

Spending the morning on my own, taking down the exhibition. A nice quiet start to the day.

Leaving work early because the adults had all gone. So I sat in the park reading for a few hours.

Hanging out with Stuart, Matt and the Greeks for Bill’s birthday picnic. They are fun and it was lovely to have a fun evening with Stuart again.

Hot summer lunchtime in the park, tanning my legs

Linking up and getting a fabulous new venue for the next Period Party

Making a dress in the evening and not even making a single mistake. A lovely quiet evening of making.

Going to see my exhibition with Stuart. It was so sweet that he wanted to go see it.

Lying in the park afterwards, in the sun in my dress

Feeling really close to Stuart again.

Gardening. A day in the sun. Relaxing. I’m glad I took today off too.

The smell of shaving foam.

Our new compact Hoover.

Having an iced coffee in the sun outside the new (to us) coffee place near our new house.

Walking slowly round Paks, looking at everything and not feeling rushed.

Lying in the park, reading in the sun on my own. It’s been a really relaxing quiet day.

The most perfect day on the canal on their new boat.

All the wildlife. The kingfisher, the dragonflies, the greedy swans.

Dipping my toes in the water, sitting in the sun at the front of the boat.


A day in the sun.

My brown tummy

Seeing shooting stars with Sarah


Lying in the sun with my boobs out. 

Not getting burnt.

Getting completely lost in my book.


Picking up Hannah – no more solo. And someone to tell my hilarious jokes and comments to.

Our beautiful finca for the week. It’s so gorgeous!

Going for a swim and then eating bread and cheese on the sunbeds. Bliss.


Dozing in the sun, in my parents garden.

A walk along the seafront in the afternoon. With obligatory ice cream break.

Watching the bat flit about in the darkness.

The chocolatine aux almondes. Fuck me. That thing was delicious.

Lying in the sun next to the pond for hours and wandering around the Japanese garden. 

Walking home from dinner and discovering a little group of people dancing and playing live French music. I stopped and watched for a while, smiling like I haven’t smiled for days. My highlight of the holiday. The perfect last evening in France.

Making the house look pretty with flatmates. Organised the DVDs, did more gardening (well, hacking) and discovered an insane amount of old remotes.
Sitting in the sun, in our new chair, drinking coke from a glass bottle. It’s just like being on holiday.
A perfectly lined-up stripy top and a new way of hemming necklines.

When the bus driver waited for the man running along the street.
Fabric shopping.
Sitting on the newly cleaned balcony, eating raspberries and reading in the sun.

The cows, and adorable calf, next to the boat this morning.
Sunbathing on the hot (canal boat) roof.

The canal boat holiday has now ended. Normal service shall resume tomorrow.

Lying on the sand with my legs in the sun at Cathedral Cove.
Going through the carwash.
The smell of wood burning at the campsite.

Sunbathing and playing in the pool.
I read a whole book today.
The pool sign that requires you to ‘please have a shower before entering the poo’.

Lying in the sun on the edge of lake Wanaka, relaxing after the days of walks.

The lovely mocha. Great coffee, lots of chocolate.

Seeing the dolphins swim right up to us at Monkey Mia. The newborn was the best. So playful and energetic.
Spending the whole day relaxing in the sun and reading.
Seeing a turtle poke his head up a few metres from us in the sea.
