Swallows' Flight | A slice of summer in Devon's South Hams

Now that we're past midsummer and the nights will begin to get longer again (thanks winter-loving friend who reminded me of this on Friday!), the possibility of a super summer like last year is fast slipping through our fingers. This month has been wall-to-wall rain, which has made me extra grateful for that sun-soaked Easter weekend we enjoyed in Devon a few months back.

A summer garden update

When you have pale English rose skin like mine, finding shade in the summer is a necessity. We've spent the past few weekends waking the garden up from its wintry slumber - chopping back dead branches, clearing leaves, and planting.

Community Business Weekend part two | Bristol Ferry Boats


Those of us who are Bristolians of a certain age remember the Harbourside before it was trendy (and still use the word trendy). When I was a kid, the area was a working dock and certainly not somewhere you’d head to for a cheeky post-work Aperol Spritz. The area has changed so much and is now our home - I’m happy every day that I look out over the water and see boats chugging by.

Interiors | We're house hunting!

I have big news... We've been scouring Rightmove because it's time for us to find a new home. Actually, scratch that. There's a lovely anecdote in the new Philippa Perry book 'The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did)' where a kid says "we've already got a home, we just need a house to put it in", which pretty much sums it up.
