My favourite weather is sunshine and bright blue skies. I prefer the heat of the summer sun but a walk when wrapped up well on a crisp, cold day warms the soul too. Until I lived at the seaside I never realised that the sea changes colour daily and the most magical time is an early morning run along the beach.
This is a local beauty spot I like to visit. It is a lake in a clay bowl which leads to the water being a blue green colour. It’s a different colour each time you visit. The reflection of the surrounding woodland adds to the colour of the pool and it is quite mesmerising as you walk around.
When we redesigned our kitchen the most important feature was a space for a large kitchen table. Of all the space in our house this corner of the kitchen is my happy place.
We sit around this table everyday as a family and we talk, laugh and listen to each other over dinner. It’s the area we decorate for special occasions, where I work and blog, sew on my machine, do art and crafts with the children, chat with friends over a cup of tea, it’s the heart of our home.
