And so with the sunshine, it felt like summer all over again. In the mornings the mist rolled over the Downs and all was grey, and it felt as if we had skipped Autumn and Winter was here and was everywhere. Yet by the afternoon the sun shone down and we were back in the heady days of Summer. It's hard to keep your feet on the ground when the world around you can change so quickly.
I mistakenly thought I would have a quiet week. I had little work on, as the BBC took over my work space for a week, as they filmed a drama about the lives of the Bloomsbury Group. So when I did go in, I spent most of my time pouring over pictures of the cast in their glorious period costumes, or narrowly missing Rupert Penry-Jones (rats, darn it, etc...). And yet the time has rushed on by. We spent time at the new house. I insulated a new wall, and only those who know me in the real world will understand my astonishment at writing that sentence. A month ago my only experience of DIY was nagging other people to do it for me. These days, I've got the skills. Sort of.
The return of summer has had real effect on my wardrobe. I've been exploring more autumnal shades over the past few weeks - a little early I know, but when I feel the first throes of Autumn in the air I can't help but get excited. But this week has been all about bright prints and floral patterns. I have a feeling the sunshine won't stick around for long, so it's probably best to enjoy it!
Living between two houses has really taken it's toll on our diets. We've been reaching for food that's easy to prepare/can just be shoved in the oven - lot's of pizza. And I mean a lot. So this week we've been making more of an effort, and the other day I came home to an absolute feast. Husband had excelled himself. He even made hummus. Yes, you read that correctly - HE MADE HUMMUS. And you know what? It was utterly delicious.
We're going to try and grow as much of our food as possible at the new house (she says, with her minimal gardening experience fully on show), and hopefully that will keep our diets on the straight and narrow, and allow us to create super tasty but healthy meals. Ask me how its going in a year or so...
I've had a lot of fun with the blog this week. On Wednesday I wrote about my love of Twin Peaks, and the effect it had on my wardrobe. I think it's one of my favourite ever posts. In keeping with my end of summer theme, I looked at the best of summer vintage available in the Lori and the Caravan shop.
That's it from me for the time being. I'll finally get round to blog-hopping next week, as well as lot's more vintage finds in the Lori and the Caravan shop!
Have a lovely weekend x
