Happy 4th of July! Wishing everyone in the USA a fun and safe celebration and all expats who are living elsewhere, hope you’re able to celebrate too! In the UK, it’s music festival season and we’ve just spent the weekend funking it up at the Love Supreme music festival at Glynde, Sussex. Amazing live music and performances by Grace Jones, Moon Hooch, Kelis, Melody Gardot and so many more stunning and talented artists. It was my eldest son’s 15th birthday treat and family fun time complete with camping British style (rain), yummy street food and after party with Giles Peterson (my son did that, I was tucked up out of the rain in our very old tent).


A shame we all have to go to work and school today, but hey ho, we’re in England, not new England. This evening we’re meeting up with a few other Americans for ice cream sundaes after hot dogs and American history quizzes. Enjoy the day everyone!
