Life: October Sunshine

I’m sure you’re sick to death of reading the words ‘Indian Summer’ and ‘hottest October on record’, or if you’re really odd you’re probably sick of the ongoing heatwave we’ve been experiencing in the UK. Let’s be honest, whatever type of weather we have people will complain but I refuse to moan about this glorious sunshine! England barely had a summer this year, and I haven’t been out of the country at all as all my money was spent on moving house, so despite having to stay in the office for most of this mini Summer I’ve tried my hardest to make the most of it.

I work in beautiful Chiswick, and took the opportunity to sit out on Turnham Green with Pink Julep and Pauper Princess to take in the rays and look angrily at the unemployed young people who could sit there for longer than us. Check us out being summery!

We also had a great opportunity while scoping out places for an event to sit on a gorgeous terrace at a private members club in the sunshine with a complimentary drink and a gorgeous view over Covent Garden where we could see the London Eye and Parliament in the distance (the pic doesn’t do it justice!).

‘Working’ in the sunshine – lovely!

And of course there have been BBQs and a lot of sitting about in the garden reading copious amounts of trashy magazines. Bliss!

Apparently there’s going to be snow in the next few weeks. I won’t complain then either as it means I’ll be able to wear my big lovely parka which I’ve missed. I’m British, I can deal with any weather!
