Happy August! Welcome to the last month of summer, even though it may not look very summery this side of the pond. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the rain decides to peter off before my little seaside holiday in a couple of weeks! James and I have rented a little flat in Cornwall for a few nights; we’ll be by the coast, and just close enough to my dad’s house so we can drop in on them and the dogs for a few drinks when we fancy it. I’m so excited, I’m literally crossing off the days on my calendar!
