Every year I take a little break from my blog, usually if I am away in the sun! Or like last year when my daughter was starting at university and I wanted to spend time with her. This year it is for different reasons, if only I was away in the sun, but I need to deal with some personal issues ... I am okay but I am needed elsewhere for a few weeks. And my husband and I then have a late summer break in Cornwall to look forward to. I will be back in September with renewed energy and enthusiasm and I hope a better outlook with regard to the current Covid-19 situation. Isn't it all so contradictory and confusing?
I've got some lovely posts to write which I am looking forward to planning and researching and I do love my writing and the time I spend on my blog. I am very proud of my little space and I love to get feedback from my followers, I have always said if I help just one person with a tiny nugget of information or to find the perfect dress then I am happy.
I am very grateful to you all and a big welcome to my new subscribers, thank you for agreeing to receive emails from me!
Do take a look at some of my recent blog posts if you missed them:
There was my little solo break in Lymington here and
My worries about working from home, as well as
Beautiful cotton, sustainable styles from Creative DeZigns and
Flattering swimwear ... which reminds me, did you see the photos in the press of Colleen Rooney looking fabulous in her selection of swimsuits, she is embracing the all-in-one this year and looking gorgeous.
My pretty white dress is from H&M this season but now unavailable in white. But it is available in a few sizes in other colours here, it is a crinkle cotton, really light and has adjustable straps. I wear it with a bikini under it so I don't worry about straps or that it is a bit see-through (it's not too bad because of the volume).
Right I'm off then, stay in touch, I will be posting occasionally on Instagram (grid and stories).
Below: On Saturday we had our annual family BBQ at my sisters house, it was a good day, and we loved all being together especially as the weather was perfect, I wore this previous season Hush skirt which is a favourite - oh and the pic on the right is me with a brother-in-law, I just thought it was a fun / silly pic to share!
I link up with:

What is a link-up?
It is a way to connect with other bloggers and share content and hopefully for me to be found by others and for my followers to discover new blogs!
