Busy, busy, busy

What a whirlwind of a month July was. On top of the daily grind of work in the heart of London I managed to:

Get the village to read Atonement for a literary event in the annual arts festival
(Isn't James McElvoy swoonsome?)

Took a ride on a steam train

Felt such sadness at the loss of a great singer
(My son took this pro shot a few years ago)

And a great Saxophonist

Sung my heart out at our Rock Choir end of year show at the St Albans Arena
(That's me second right)

Made bunting

Did a lot of laps in this pool - just around the corner from Lilac Cottage

Held a yard sale (it poured with rain - don't ask) aided by my delightful assistant Cosima

Saw Moby at the Apple Store, Regent Street.
(My son organised this event  :-) proud Mum )

Painted the sitting room (it doesn't look quite so yellow as this honest!)

So I think you'll agree I have deserved a bit of a break.
Woohoo -  I'm of to Il-de-Re at the end of the month!

Are you off anywhere nice?
