Ask me any day of the week and I'll tell you that one of the biggest things I'd love is to be able to move out. I've been living with my parents for the last decade since I moved back after university, and as incredibly grateful as I am for all their support, let's just say it's not always a smooth ride. Having a space of my own to make my own little home and live the way I want to has been a dream for years but unfortunately financial circumstances have never made it possible.
This summer seems to have given us some of the most prolonged periods of good weather I can remember for years. Days and days of sunshine, high temperatures, warm and humid nights, and then the inevitable thunderstorms that break down and start the cycle over again. But I'm actually quite enjoying it. Not being confined to packed commuter trains or stuffy offices (sorry to those of you who are!) is bliss, and being able to get outside regularly, even just for a few minutes in the garden is wonderful.
