The sun blazes down upon us, as we peer outwards from sun hats and shady nooks.
Oh how fun and frantic this last week has been: I have partied with my oldest friend, managed deathly hangovers, strolled hand in hand with my boy, ate ice creams without care, cradled glasses of wine on a balmy eve, enjoyed family visits and anxiously waited for news as my dear friend laboured her way through the heatwave to produce another beautiful little boy.
It's been a slight struggle to keep my toddler's temperament happy in this heat, and I've been struggling with F's lack of appetite – insert my mama anxiety here – but it turns out that ANY type of water works wonders. So we've stopped pretty much at every fountain, pool and pond we could find to ensure fun times.
How have you been celebrating summer?
