Ah, the happy sound of kiddies running amok in the garden next door – four youngsters with one large paddling pool and a massive trampoline.  Thankfully the latter has an equally massive net around it to catch them!  The glorious weather we’ve been having this last fortnight has really brought out the best moods and jolly atmosphere that we all so need.

There have been lots of folk upgrading their outdoor furnishings too by the look of bulging cars and vans disgorging box loads of rather lovely looking chairs, deck loungers, sun loungers .  There are soe very attractive sets available now, antique effect metal edged tables with glass tops to add a parisian feel to little suburbia!  The very best way to see what’s out there is to browse online – there are masses available with all kinds of luscious accessories and fun stuff.  Some very important items not to be overlooked – the sun parasols!
