Well back to it now, kids back to school, tan fading, and shops starting to fill their displays with all things pertaining to that great event at the end of the year. Goodness… where on earth did the time go? Must be an age thing.
Anyway how was it for you? All honest opinions welcome please. What did you think of the Jubilee? The Olympics? The weather, your holidays and anything else you may well want to discuss??
Me? Despite the madness as always chez Dawson, I loved the summer. My son was in the opening ceremony of the Olympics (the industrial revolution bit) so obviously I'm completely biased about that (5 of us sat round my iPhone in Italy trying to spot him ) Great excitement!!
Italy was as fabio as ever, with all the family. Actually managed to get off somewhere different with the youngest as well this year. Just him and me in Athens for a few days. Frequented some very upmarket restaurants, me and the 15 year old – it was great fun.
Of course the downside to all of this "posh nosh" is that I did pile on a few pounds. But I'm sure when you look at the photos (which will follow shortly) you will indeed agree with me that it was just a tad too tempting. No worries though, back into Zumba with a vengeance. Got my niece's wedding coming up at the end of next month, so will have to sort it all out by then.
Let me know how your summer went!
lots of love,
Ps. will post pics soon!
