Hello! I hope you’re all having a lovely start to the week. I’m determined to enjoy the last few weeks of summer and have planned some fun activities to make the most of the sunshine. This week, my Mum and I had an impromptu picnic at an idyllic location, which I’ve been excited to share with you. I also started reading two new books over the weekend and I chat about my thoughts so far in this video.

BOOK CLUB: I host the Comfort Book Club with my Mum, and every month we pick a comforting read and discuss it on the last Friday of the month (along with a baking session!). Everyone is very welcome to read along with us. The August comfort read is ‘China Court’ by Rumer Godden. See our other chosen reads for Autumn – Christmas here:
