I’m in the middle of two weeks off from work – and I hear I may have dropped on a mini heatwave.
My phone weather forecast is predicting the temperature here will hit a slightly scary 30°C during next week!
We’ve already had a couple of days away camping in Wales, when we walked, watched dolphins from the harbour and I actually had a day of sitting around doing very little (for the first time in months) other than reading and listening to the sea.
I’ll share more on that little trip, but here’s a rather pretty taster.
We came home with lots to do: the charity ball I’m helping to plan in honour of my godson Freddie is fast approaching (and looking awesome) and we wanted to get started on taking our outside space from its current jungle state to something resembling a garden.
But we’re hoping to be back off in the tent next week so, one way or another, when the sun really hits we’re likely to be outdoors.
This week I wasn’t really ready for the heat, and even got a little sun burned, so I’ll be keeping sun lotion on hand and well applied over the next few days.
I’m also dreaming of the things I want to buy should the hot weather stick around!

I’m stocking up on books, because when the sun comes out you’re allowed to drop everything you should be doing and sit outside reading. Do you have any recommendations for great summer reads?
And I’m getting my skin ready. I was slightly shocked this week when the weather got hot enough to force my legs to face the world. They were definitely underprepared! Cue: a few extra lunges, exfoliation, some generous applications of gradual tan and keeping them smooth. Hair removal specialists Nair have introduced a new Argan Oil product range that they say keeps skin softer and smoother, and they’re raising awareness of the positive feeling and effect smooth skin has on comfort and body confidence.

How are you gearing up for the hot weather?
