Here Comes the Summer Sun!

We don't get a lot of sun us Brits. The pitifully few sunny we get are rarely on a weekend and we daren't even dream of getting them on a bank holiday weekend! Oh BUT WE DID! 

And what a difference some sun makes. Literally it means you can go outside and breathe in a good mood! If my Dad was writing a guest post on here he would be inserting a paragraph here about how as natives we're physiologically built to run around naked and absorb all that vitamin D, because we wear clothes and have migrated so far north we are all vit D deficient and that that's why we feel so fabulous in the sun. If he's right it would explain a lot, because I know I feel great for some sun. 

Sun and air. 

As I'm writing this I am realising that this kind of enthused talk of sun and fresh air could only come from a pregnant woman who is finally getting her mojo back. Farewell 12 week long zombiehood and continuous nausea. Hellooooooo second trimester burst and bloom. I'm excited. I feel like I've been zapped back to life and someone lifted the veil. I want to eat fruit and get stuff done. I want to be outside and exercise. 

I feel like me again. 

So here's what we did with some sun, some energy and an few corners of the outdoors. 
Some more flower pics from our walk here...
 Cousins... She loves them. She loves the noise, the mess, the clumsiness... 
Green stuff ahoy!
 Food. It seems so much easier to eat well in the heat.
 Needs must. Won't say I wouldn't rather be soaking up this sun with a Pinot...
 My Mum reinvents rounders with a mallet, ball pool balls and teddies for stops. Euna charges the field every so often...
 "Say whaaaaaat?"


  1. I love your photos, such a scene of British summer life and gorgeous weather! Congratulations on passing 12 weeks, like you the nausea just left me at that point and so I know just how you feel. Enjoy this next stage and fingers crossed for plenty more days to soak up the vitamin D! Thank you for joining me on Country Kids.
