Summer is now in full swing and even though we’re all trying to decipher and navigate the many and differing ‘rules’ that come our way, it does feel rather wonderful to appreciate some re-found freedom and liberties.
Welcome to the beautiful month of July, the epitome of ‘Britishness’. Croquet, Pimms on the lawn, Wimbledon, outdoor picnics, evening bike rides, strawberries & cream, paddling in the sea, fruit picking and barbecuing EVERYTHING in sight!
Welcome to June, my favourite month! My lovely Mark has a big birthday on 2nd June and mine is on 3rd (not big!), so it will be a special celebration for us this year in a real hotel, a real restaurant inside, with real people…joy.
Wherever you find yourself reading this, either having come through this period unscathed, perhaps even flourishing in some way during this time, conversely with scars of great loss and trauma, or somewhere in between it all, one thing that could massively affect our future is how we are able to EMERGE from it.
APRIL and the month we celebrate EASTER. Hmmm…the very word brings a sense of peace and hope. It heralds Spring and our love of lighter evenings, birdsong, buds and flowers bursting forth in gardens, hedgerows and of course, the four-day weekend with a nice long time to rejuvenate, reflect, relax and welcome the next season.
