It’s been ages since I wrote about food, and almost as long since I had a chance to really cook. Finally, there are a few weeks where I’ll be at home and so can invite friends over to eat, and sample my favourite summer cocktail, ‘The Hugo Spritz’.
Now is the time to have a pair of swim shorts at the ready; you never know when you will have the opportunity to go to a pool party, out on a boat or be able to divert on your way home and have a quick dip in the sea.
Dad’s come in all shapes and sizes, but there’s one thing that most of them have in common; they get overlooked a bit. We take for granted that they will pick up, fix up and don’t argue with us and defend us to the last. They can be sensitive too, even though some feel that is showing weakness, and so get hurt by our actions along the way…
Wedding season is upon us and so is the panic of what to wear as a guest! The time of day and the location affect your choice. Footwear will be dictated by the flooring – is it sand/grass, is it on an uneven surface? Will you be seated or standing for the duration of the event?
One of the biggest days in a man’s life is his wedding. It’s not just a time to promise to have and to hold from this day forth, but also to celebrate his relationship with his family, his new family and his crew – some having been around way before the partner.
Mums, step mums, girlfriends and partners who look after their other half’s children, mums to be and women who missed out on the chance to be a mother, and to those who lost their mother or child, Sunday the 8th of May is all about you.
Mother’s Day is on the horizon and it’s time to start thinking about celebrating your mum. Plan to do something to say thank you for all the things she does for you which mount up, although she would never mention them; she just thinks it’s her job.
Now is the time for serious pampering; us ladies need to start the bikini body prep and as more and more flesh will be exposed, need to get it ready for public viewing. Pedicures have got to be one of life’s absolute luxuries and with sandal time here any day, set time aside to do yours.
Don’t you just love this time of year? Spring is most definitely in the air and plans to meet friends and family are in full swing. Wedding invitations have started to arrive, and beach bodies are a work in progress.
