summer time soirees...


I don't want to alarm you, but there might be a miracle afoot. 
It is warm. 
In Summer. 
In Scotland. 
And so while this phenomenon is taking place RIGHT OUTSIDE MY DOOR, I feel it time to acknowledge something I have long denied. Here it is...

Our flat is too small for parties containing more than approximately 6 people. 


Now I sit here dreaming of tables laden with Summer fresh produce, baked goods and prettily presented drinks...that can sit 6 or more people. I imagine the day when I'll be able to picnic in my own backyard - OH the blankets we'll have! And I drift away to thoughts of dinner parties tinkling late into the night, fairy lights in trees and jazz muted in the background. 

I must confess, right now we have a backyard which is fairly spectacular in view, and believe you me, I am not (no siree) complaining. So for now, we shall have wee parties of 4 (let's go wild and say 6!) and enjoy them to all our hearts content! Husbando will without even knowing the plan...let's be honest, his focus is the food. 

But in the meantime, let's continue to plan the prettiest of soirees, laden with cakes with fresh frosting, fresh flowers (good alliteration here no?!) smelling sweet, and company the loveliest of them all!

ps - I'm assuming it'll be rainy and cold again by tomorrow, but we think positively! x
