The kids are off, so OF COURSE it starts absolutely pxxing down, monsoon style, the second they finish. This leaves frantic mothers bulk buying virgin media films (just me?) and cramming in snacks (also me?) to their delightful offspring in a desperate attempt to get just one minutes peace.
And don’t you singletons be thinking you are any less affected. It’s secret garden party this weekend. Enjoy your mud-fest!
But thanks to My Little Box (yes, regular reader, I DO love them!) there is a solution. Make like Baby and Jonny and hit the car! Road Trip time!
The theme of this month’s box is road trip and the My Little company have as always delivered some beauties, from a gorgeous wipe clean travel organiser, to the cutest little story book.
Beauty gifts included L’Oréal Micellar Water in a small size, perfect for holidays, Essie’s nail polish in braziliant – a seriously bright ‘rain, rain go away’ tangerine with just the right amount of shimmer.
Finally my favourite, an own-brand body soufflé. Meant to be a cooling after-sun, I am beyond addicted to the strawberry-sherbert fragrance and deeply moisturising balm. Worth the box fee by itself frankly!
So with this super-cute theme in mind, I decided to say SOD IT. It’s raining – we’re British – LETS DO THIS!
So I am presently packing my wellies and the kids into their waterproofs to hit some farms and get wet – if any of you fancy a break join me! We’ll start a summer revolution (and if the kids don’t like it they may well shut it the next time I want to watch ‘home’ in peace!)
See you all soon!
