No need for our Hunter Wellies or Hunter Festival Rain Ponchos this year. What a glorious festival.

David and I follow the Glastonbury highlights on TV (oh to be twenty something again and to be there). The atmosphere looked amazing and the Muse set was outstanding. Nothing beats the high of singing along with a huge crowd of like-minded people.

Did you see Michael Eavis singing Happy Birthday with Stevie Wonder? You must YouTube it - funny and touchingly innocent. Happy 40th Birthday!.

Sunday 13th June was our 6th Family Birthday. To celebrate we had a lovely lunch in Carluccio's in Windsor and bought Imi a pair of Lelly Kelly party shoes. Imi was absolutely thrilled. She had coveted these silver shoes with little heel for months and puts them on as soon as she comes in from school, places them by her night-light when she goes to bed and arrives in our bedroom in the morning wearing her dressing gown, silver shoes and the biggest smile.

We can't believe Imi is now 7 and six years have passed so quickly. We would love to return to China for a holiday in the next year or two and revisit Jiangxi Province. Its been such a wonderful post-adoption journey and we are so proud of our beautiful little girl.

Ooops! Forgot to Workout for Summer

After enjoying the gorgeous weekend weather my thoughts have turned to our summer holiday. A quick glance in the mirror at the weekend while tinting my pasty white legs was quite a shock. (Lynda blogging - David hasn't resorted to tinting yet.) Legs aren't too bad thanks to the Fitflops but butt, belly and arms need a bit of work.

Luckily while posting this blog my friend Sarah just called to say she has booked a group tennis lesson. A perfect start and a good excuse to buy a new tennis skirt and top. Our Casall range has lovely clean lines mixed with contemporary prints and forgiving cuts over what Imi describes as my "flummy tummy" area.

Maybe after a few lessons I'll be ready to try on our Sunseeker bikinis. Fingers Crossed.
