Packing my bucket and spade for a little holiday, featuring ice creams, paddling and banana pancakes…

But just also to say, last night – on her 88th birthday no less – I gave my Mum the book of all the wonderful, remarkable letters left on the post below. I won’t say too much now or relate her reply, but will prepare to it to share when I get home. Suffice to say, she was truly overwhelmed.

Wishing you all a happy, restful summer and a double ninety nine with ALL the sprinkles – you deserve it, you’re amazing!
