The summer's flying past, with little time to set it down here. We went on holiday - it's always a wonderful thing to experience the glories of a British summer.
For the last few years, we've been here for a few wonderful days every summer - it's like visiting family, and is possibly the only week of the year when everyone is entirely relaxed. Usually we spend an hour one afternoon wandering round the Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival. Here is a picture I took for Alice - this, I imagine, is the type of thing she would create if she was ever forced to make her own scarecrows.
Whilst there, one of my rituals is a big breakfast bowl of Greek yogurt with muesli and honey. I can't recreate the holiday every day, but I've been able to recreate the breakfast, thanks to Total Greek Yogurt, who sent a bumper pack of yogurt for me to review.
This is the best breakfast in the world, I tell you. And the fat-free version, that tastes completely indulgent and evil? 57 calories for 100g. I have no idea how they do that. They also sent me some delicious split pots, with a little portion of blueberry or raspberry compote. Now the best thing about these yogurts - and I'm sure this isn't what Total were expecting me to say when they sent me them, but here goes - is that I love them extra specially because my children don't like them. They don't even try to steal them away from me. It's a rare thing, to have delicious things in the fridge that you don't have to place under guard.
So here I am, eeking out the holiday with my little reminders. A yummy breakfast, plenty of pouring rain, and children with hair like scarecrows. I'll brush them into shape them later. We've still a few precious days to go before the school year starts.
