I rather like a wet Saturday afternoon if I'm honest. I was out this morning on my bike and got completely soaked but I really enjoyed myself, glad to be home now, warm and dry and listening to the radio.
After our beautiful Bank Holiday my mind's really turned around to thinking of summer at last and on this wet afternoon with cycling on the telly to watch, I'll be day dreaming about our plans for the season ahead.
We've planned a couple of jaunts in our little caravan. For Whit Weekend (the start of summer I always think) we're heading up to the glorious Yorkshire Dales to a lovely farm campsite near Harrogate. Next summer the Tour de France departs from Yorkshire and there's a second stage too so we're doing a bit of a campsite recce ahead of time.
And later we're dragging the van all the way down to Cornwall for the first time to a lovely site close to the beach on the North Coast. I'm beyond excited!
Really can't wait to get out of the road again, hope the weather sorts itself out by then. Do you like my new mugs? I think my favourite part of any of our caravan trips is that first cup of coffee in the morning, either tucked up in my cosy bed or sat in the field enjoying a sunny early morning. Couldn't resist these little pot-bellied enamelled mugs, I'll enjoy my early morning coffee even more I think.
I've had a couple of other summery treats too. My long search for the ideal Breton top is over at last! Thanks to a voucher and a bit of a sale this Boden number has come my way and is just the job. And some new reading material too. I love Monty's French Garden's series so I'm looking forward to reading his travelogue; a perfect summer read.
My garden still looks very spring like and the colours have done a fabulous job of lifting me out of my winter stupor.
I've got tons of seedlings maturing too; nasturtium, Amii Magus, cosmos, sweet peas, fennel, verbena bonariensis. Summer is going to be pretty colourful too I hope.
But its too wet for gardening now so I might just have to have a sneaky read I think x
