It’s all about summer fun at this week’s Hearth and Soul Link Party! Summers in England can be disappointing, but this year we’ve had tons of sun and very warm temperatures. It’s a refreshing change!
A lot of folks are talking about summer’s end, but for children and young people in the UK, summer fun is only beginning. Most finished school only a week ago for the summer break. So while I always love a bit of pumpkin spice and looking forward to fall, I’m hanging on to summer for just a few more weeks.
Last week I posted a recipe I’ve been making for years but never quite got round to blogging – Spicy Crab Topped Cod.
This easy, versatile and flavourful dish can be on the table in 30 minutes. While it’s great for busy weeknights, it’s also wonderful for entertaining. Plus you can adjust the spice to suit your family, and there are gluten and dairy free options too.
I also shared a style post for the first time in ages!
With hints and tips to help you wear one dress many different ways, you can enjoy your favourite dresses more, and save money too.
Summer Fun Features
It’s all about summer fun this week, and ways to enjoy this lovely last month of summer 2018.
How to have more summer fun? Here are some ideas (from top left, clockwise):-
Take some time out to enjoy a Vintage Garden Tour with Laura of Decor To Adore. I thoroughly enjoyed my relaxing and restorative virtual visit. Don’t miss the wee magical visitors!
Enjoy a beautiful dessert that is good for you too with Zoe and Mia of Unconventional Cooks. Their Healthy Banana Caramel Nice Cream Cake is grain-free and vegan. Healthy really can be delicious too!
Freshen up your indoor spaces whilst giving yourself time out to think with inspiration from Poofing the Pillows’ entertaining essay Thoughts While Cleaning The Refrigerator. I’m so pleased to know I’m not the only one whose mind wanders when I’m cleaning!
Make a virtual visit to The Chapel Hill Farmer’s Market with Nancy of On The Home Front. Let it encourage you to visit a local farmer’s market in real life! Even if you have your own veg patch, there’s nothing like exploring a traditional farmer’s market. Of course, the best bit is coming home and making delicious things!
