Summer Lovin’

18th July 2013

Ole, ole. Ole, ole. Feeling hot. Hot. Hot.

Life is currently one big holiday thanks to this rather unexpected heatwave. Highlights have included: strawberries, shortbread and cream at the Cherwell Boathouse, punting, my gorgeous niece’s 2nd birthday party, my sister’s Victoria sponge cake, sunbathing at Magdalen College, the Oxford Botanic Garden, salted caramel cheesecakeΒ in the Ashmolean rooftop restaurant, a work summer party complete with bouncy castle, shopping in Chelsea, gnocchi primavera and Eton mess at the Bluebird, Kings Road, chilled drinks on the Thames, sunsets, open windows, late night swims, a holiday haircut and a new vintage summer dress. I hope the sunshine is bringing you oodles of fun and long may it continue!

    Your life sounds (and looks) like a lovely, old fashioned novel – especially to a girl living in Australia.

    Yum scrum to all of the above. I love the idea of decorating a cake with chocolate mice. Also, I like to buy authentic leather sandals when I'm on holiday in Greece too – the perfect souvenir!

      Any excuse for white chocolate mice! (they spell my niece's name – 'Fifi')
