Bardot


I'm heading for France next week and can never think of St Tropez and the French Riviera without thinking of the gorgeous Brigitte Bardot.... 
the original "sex kitten" & bikini girl....

Actress, model, singer, animal rights activist & four times married, she certainly lived life to the full.

I think she was absolutely beautiful....totally feminine & irresistibly French.   













Room With A View....


Some beautiful spaces here....wonderfully inspiring.

I have only ever lived in a home with very clearly defined rooms and spaces - as is the case with most British homes - but the potential in these large open plan spaces is quite something, the possibilities are endless.

What A Show!!








Such fantastic scenes in London last night for the Opening Ceremony of the XXX Olympic Games.
A brilliantly creative & inspiring ceremony from Danny Boyle....
I thought it was absolutely fantastic, it was visually stunning - 
I felt incredibly proud of London & of being British. 







What A Fabulous Friday!

First week of the summer hols....
my children have slept in & spent lazy days doing nothing....
exactly what holidays should be about.
I've started packing for the holidays, bought holiday sandals & spent quite a few blissful hours just reading and drinking tea....
slowing down.  

....so excited for the Olympics, London is buzzing!

The Opening Ceremony begins in about one hour's time.
I feel so proud to be in London, so proud to be British & so proud of everyone who is participating.
Let the Games begin!!

Have a wonderful week-end!



Not long now.....



....30 hours and counting!!
