Hope you’re all well and enjoying the sunshine we’ve been having of late (coming from my neck of the woods, I’m always slightly apprehensive about praising sunny weather!).
Anyway it’s been a wee while since you’ve had an update on the latest addition to win Great auntie Anne’s heart, so I thought I’d pop over a few photos for you.
My favourite is the one of all three of them getting ready for England’s debut match during the recent World Cup (shame they aren’t Germany supporters, we could’ve had a whole album!).
Given the choice of going out for a slap-up meal or afternoon tea, with my pot of Earl Grey and teeny weeny finger sandwiches…well, no contest really!
Of course the icing on the cake (every pun intended) is the warm scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream.
Gosh, I’m tempting myself even as I write! Is afternoon tea appropriate at 8am?
Anyway how is your summer going?
I really can’t complain as I’m out again to Italy shortly. Had a fabulous nine days there recently with my friend Fiona. I love going out with the family, but I have to say that going out with a girlfriend is just sooooo relaxing. In fact the most exercise I think we got was moving from our sun loungers on the beach up to the little restaurant for our daily pasta and gelato fix. My bathroom scales did indeed confirm this lack of momentum, when upon my return I discovered that there was an extra 5lb of Anne Dawson (Good job this doesn’t count as “excess baggage”)!
Back out shortly with the family (14 days this time!) and a resolve to only have 2 scoops of the delicious homemade gelato once a day, less I return the size of a four-bedroom detached house!
There shall be a wee Italy photo album at the end of the summer on my blog. Funny thing is, most of my photos are of food, so it may look a bit like a menu! Very strange (could there possibly be a connection between the photos and my bathroom scales?)!
Take care you lovely lot and catch up soon.
Lots of love.
