We’re having a heatwave. A tropical heatwave. Isn’t summer just the best time of year? Long hot days endlessly stretching before us and enticing us outside for a change. There’s no better place to be when the sun is high than under the shade with a cool drink and a chick flick to hand. Even better if there’s just a hint of a breeze and no looming chores to spoil the moment. Zara Home have just about fulfilled my every need comfort-wise with their summer linens. In fact the colours of the season in store are coral, lime and lavender and that just about says it all. Can somebody please fix me a drink?
