How are we all? It looks as though for most people today is the last day of school term, which means a Summer of fun is about to begin! We have lots of lovely things planned for the shop and blog over Summer, but we hope to get outside sometime and enjoy the weather! This is the most prolonged period of sunshine we can remember since we were young kids, and doesn't it make a difference?! We are a little worried about the general wellbeing of the nation now that England have been kicked out of the World Cup, Love Island is coming to an end, and the nights are going to get longer, darker and cooler. So do enjoy the weather as much as you can, and spare a thought for those of us who are stuck indoors for most of the day!
Whilst we do hope the sunshine is here to stay, we know the English Summertime wouldn't be the same without a bit of rain, so we've created a guide for 'rainy day' games that are fun for all the family! Lots of these games are also handy travel or pocket size so ideal for taking to enjoy on holiday.
