Can you believe that there’s only one more bank holiday weekend to go before we welcome autumn? To be honest, I feel like my head’s still stuck back in the summer of 2018 and the tropical weather that came with it, never mind accepting that we’re well and truly past the 2019 half way mark.

It’s not that we don’t love exotic holidays to far-flung destinations but when you have an old house and a big garden requiring a fair bit of love and attention, something has to give while you invest your time and money in upkeep and renovation plans.

It’s a strange summer we’re having when something so mundane as opening up the patio doors becomes an almost momentous occasion. But such a has been the weather, I feel like trumpets should sound every time there’s a break in the rain and I can finally turn the handles and use the terrace as an extension of the living room.
