Summertime
Summertime | Raffaella Barker
16 posts | 1 read
For a year, Venetia Summers has been 'buffered from single-motherhood' by boyfriend David, but when work takes him to a Brazilian rainforest, things begin to unravel. Phone lines crackle, emails languish, and high-tech, long-distance love proves bewildering and vexing. Meanwhile the children and dogs run wilder than ever, brother Desmond's outrageous wedding takes over her home, and her relationship with her new neighbour, Hedley Sale, gets off to a rather unfortunate start. How is Venetia to cope alone with outward-bound style holidays, a foul-mouthed parrot and her new career as a designer of demented cardigans? A moonlit walk takes an unexpected turn, and she finds herself with a real dilemma.

My package arrived safe and sound this week @Catsandbooks , and yours has shipped via FedEx for Saturday delivery. I had it in my head that tomorrow is opening day, which doesn‘t surprise me cuz I‘ve been behind all month. I woke up thinking it was still June! I‘ll wait until you get yours to open mine! #sliceofsummer

So the summer memories/what summer means to you challenge was kind of hard because Summer for me has historically not been a good time 😅 I‘d like to try and change that because it‘s probably my son‘s favorite season. Some of these are really old my kid is 11 now 😂 This is what a summer search on my phone turned up. #SummerHeat

Cinfhen Your son is adorable!!!! Love that skateboard photo 😍 2mo
Tamra Cute!! 2mo
BarbaraBB Your son is so cute 🥰 I hope he has created some good summer memories for you ❤️ 2mo

Thought i'd choose a day when the sun is shining to post the #summersantagoespostal2019 box. Hopefully it takes a little sunshine with it as it travels!
