Styling a summer table and a simple supper suggestion

I love this time of year.

Summer tunes, the smell of sun cream, extra freckles, sandals over socks, and sitting down to dinner outside and praying that the big black cloud just about visible on the horizon passes us by.

Yes, when they weather offers up an opportunity to dine outdoors, I'm going to grasp it, even if it means wearing several layers and being prepared to quickly gather everything up and run indoors.

Simple home styling to welcome spring

I know that grey interiors continue to be incredibly popular but I really wish that Mother Nature wasn't quite so keen on the colour. The weather is so dreary and drizzly, at the moment, isn't it? But every now and again, the cloud clears, the sky becomes that teeny bit brighter, and we get to experience fleeting moments of sunshine that have us opening our eyes a little bit wider and our minds daring to dream of spring days. Days where we can head out of the door without wearing a million layers and perhaps, even stay outside for longer than five minutes without worrying about the tips of our noses freezing.
