We haven’t had a holiday this year (yet) which isn’t too bad really, when you consider how many breaks we had last year, but it’s always nice to have something to look forward to, even if it’s just a mini break in the UK or something. When we went to Bath last year for the Christmas Markets it was like we’d had a week long holiday, because it was just the two of us, for 2 whole nights, away from home!  Bliss.  While I still…

In case you weren’t sure, it’s actually July tomorrow. You know, that month where we all like to sit outside drinking booze til the sun goes down, the freckles get a little bit darker, the clothes get a little bit lighter and generally we’re all happy folk.
