Who needs to be abroad??

When we have weather like today??

Its gorgeous here in Suffolk - blue cloudless skies and oh so warm.

My arms have been exposed to the sunshine for the first time this year and my sandals have been hunted out from the back of the wardrobe and dusted down;


The cherry tree in the front garden has burst into blossom flower too - we never get the cherries though - the wildlife get there first;


Best of all - little son comes home later - not sure he'll recognise his room - you can see the carpet and the dust bunnies have all gone too. It all smells clean and fresh - I guess he won't even notice!!

The week has ended well - letters from both boys schools, after the hols - big son has been picked for a sport development day @ school with the England badminton coaches and little son is off to represent his school in a chemistry competition @ the UEA in Norwich. One proud Mummy here.

Have a lovely weekend - hope the sun shines and the car boot sales are bursting with bargains.

The Easter hols start in just 2 hours time :)

Easter hols, easter hols, rah rah rah! Am so excited not to have to do school run and can head home and visit my folks in Wales. It's a gorgeous day in London too, and my quince has blossom on it! Last year we had a solitary quince, so I'm hoping for more this year. Have a wonderful weekend x

Hols started already here- teacher training day- yippee. Picnic on the common with five other families, one dog and seventeen children running around bare chested and lovely friends lying in the sun enjoying the sun. Shame we forgot a bottle of chilly wine. Yes. The weather is amazing. Long may it last. Have happy hol, Ax

Congratulations to your boys. Love your sandals. Hasn't the weekend been just superb? So lovely to be out at the boot fairs in the sun; I think I may even have a little bit of sunburn on my nose!
