At last it's the summer and the kids have broken up from school, hooray!!! No more school runs hooray!!! I know lots of parents dread the long six weeks of summer but I have to say I may be mad and feel like I'm loosing the plot sometimes but I absolutely love it. We sang "schools out for summer" at the top of our voices all the way home and stopped off at a local coffee shop, on the way, for chocolate fudge cake, yummy, to celebrate the start of the hols. Its also nice now that my two are a little bit older they will let me have a little sleep in the morning if I've worked late the night before at QVC, which is great especially if I've been presenting the Zone as sometimes I'm crawling into bed at half four in the morning!
As usual let me know of anywhere you recommend to take the kids this summer, we can all pool our ideas to keep them entertained, no matter where you are around the country it would be great to get some information on where to go. We went to the Space Centre in Leicester a while ago and it was a really good day out, so if you go anywhere worth mentioning definitely let me know.
As promised I've included with this blog the long awaited photographs of the infamous red sofas! I hope you like them, I must say I am very pleased with them and after all that hesitation sometimes I guess it pays to be a bit bold and thank goodness I'm still in my red phase, long may it continue.
I must say before I go that I keep meaning to mention Susan and her quest for me to chop my hair! It's a bit weird but I'm quite attached to having long hair really and I think I'd find it really difficult to go for the chop. I know it's going against all the rules of fashionability and trends to have long hair as you get older, but I just can't help myself even though I can see little grey ones creeping in there, I just can't do it. The sound of scissors snipping sends me into a frenzy! So sticking with it long for the time being is honestly as about rebellious as I get!
Here's to a great summer, lots of love
