These Summer holidays have been long coming. We first managed with my wife to have a couple of days together (first time in 13 years!) in beautiful Richmond. I then headed to Belgium for a music festival with my old French pals. Back to London and away to France with family to visit the wider family. First in Paris, and then in the Nièvre region mixing intense heat, swimming pool and walks in the Morvan and Bazois. First time in a long time that we felt properly rested (an extra week would have been welcome) Now it's back to London with quite a few assignments lined up.
