am writing this through eyes propped up with matches!  have had a hectic first week of June.  However my payback is in the form of some amazing fruit and veg purchases, have met some excellent new chefs and cooks – all part of the grow and buy local farming schemes,  have a fabulous box of early summer goodies to sample, and some English wine to try later.

Drawback is I have to write up all my reports this weekend, and all I really want to do is run down to the beach with my handsome dog, and hubby, and join our friends for some beach BBQ.

What the heck – I have two days till monday and it may rain so I may as well make the most of the evening sun,  sticky ribs and yummy dip —-  Im on my way!!! 🙂

miss my sunshine house

its on days like today, stuck in the house typing working, drinking coffee, that I really miss the times we lived abroad as kids.  Only short times, never a long term thing, my father worked abroad, and there was no cheap flights then,  so we would spend school holidays with him in rented accommodation.

During the school terms, Dad would live in apartments in cities, but come the holidays, villas were rented.  Sometimes they had their own pools, and usually never far from the beach.

Not having Dad with us every day back in the Uk was sad,  no cyber chat, and no long telephone calls (no call packages then!).

But, we did write him long letters,  send him pictures, and when we did spend time with him, they were the best of days.

used the call the villas ‘The Sunshine House’,  every villa was named this,  and the name came from being able to sit in a room outdoors, where the walls where just trellis with filled with bougainvillea.

Looking out through my rain streaked windows with howling gales, where I wrap up in my 2nd cardi of the day,  I really do miss those Sunshine Days 🙂
