Lots of apologies for not blogging much this week – I haven’t had a lot of spare time what with the extra snow down here in Sussex. My kids were sledging on the beach this morning while I was skidding along the roads making my way to the Country Homes offices in London.
I have spent my week at work planning and commissioning some great summer issues for you (yes, we really do start preparing now for the June and July issues). The rest of my lovely staff have also been busy: Claire Dorey, our Assistant editor, has been skillfully shooting a June ‘Summer meadows’ decorating shoot in the Cotswolds; Vivienne Ayers, our Houses editor, has been out photographing houses in Essex and Cumbria; and Deputy editor Sara Bird has been making and creating really lovely summer craft and makes ideas for you. So watch this space!
All this talk of warm weather has made me sneek off to seek a bit of winter sun in Lanzarote with my family, so I am signing off until Tuesday 22nd February. I can’t quite imagine swimming in the sea and sitting on the beach, especially when I look at these pictures taken this week…
