How are things in your corner of the world? I’m very grateful that there are only 7 cases of COVID-19 in the part of England where I live at the moment, but we are still proceeding with great caution!
My husband Guy and I had our first (non-takeaway) coffee since lockdown this week at our favourite local restaurant. We felt so comfortable we have booked dinner there early one evening next week.
Guy and I are planning a little overnight stay in a hotel in the New Forest in the near future, as well as one at Cliveden House Hotel in September. Cliveden (pronounced KLYV – DUHN) dates from 1666 and has an extremely interesting history. It will be our second visit to Cliveden, You can find out more about the history of this amazing house, and see some photos from our first visit six years ago by clicking on the link. This visit promises to be extra special, as my husband has booked a suite with a very interesting history. ❤️ I can’t wait to share our adventures both in the New Forest and at Cliveden with you!

It’s really hot here at the moment, between 28 and 36 degrees Celcius (high eighties to mid-nineties Fahrenheit). We are eating most meals outside, and really enjoying barbecues or cooling salads. This is one of my favourite main dish salads, but it also makes fabulous sandwiches and wraps.

The Hearth and Soul Link Party
- Please do not link to anything except blog posts. Please share the permalink to your blog post, and not to the home page of your blog.
- Linking your blog posts here means you consent to me sharing as many of them as I can on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook and featuring them on my blog with photographs from the post. It’s easier for me to share if you have share buttons on your blog, and if you put links to your social media on your home page.
- It really helps when you share the party on social media using the buttons at the top and bottom of this blog post or provide a link back to AprilJHarris.com, but there is no obligation to do so.
Thank you all for visiting and sharing. Have a safe and happy week!
