Snapshot: First weekend of summer


A weekend full of firsts:

:: I picked the first roses of the year. Buds are everywhere, and in a week or two I'll be in a heady haze of tea roses which makes the tragic browning of the lilacs more bearable
:: Bought door furniture to (finally) finish off our new yellow front door. painted Farrow & Ball 'Babouche'
:: Hung out at Arthur's school fayre - bouncy castles, hot dogs, street dancing, and splat-the-rat
:: Spent a bit too much time drinking in the sun - iced coffee, beer, spritzers and buckets of Pimm's
:: Ate two lots of chargrilled asparagus - I can't get enough of British asparagus at this time of year
:: Partook of our first Jubilee-themed products in the form of Great British Fancies
:: Saturday night we finished watching The Bridge - the Swedish/Danish thriller that's had us gripped for the past week (not quite The Killing, but what is?)
:: ... before driving over Severn Bridge the following day. Spooky
:: Spent the day on the beach at Ogmore by Sea, and the boys were in their element digging and paddling and scurrying about on the rocks.

And I'm still reeling from being mentioned by Jane Brocket on her blog, Yarnstorm. Jane's blog is such an inspiration so to have her link to me and mention my Instagram pics is quite wonderful. Thanks Jane.
