Hot Weather Helpers

Knowing my luck, by the time you read this, the weather will have broken, and we’ll have been plunged back into the perma-winter we’ve known this entire year.  In which case, please accept my sincere apologies, and hopefully this will come in handy for the four days of summer we’re likely to get next year …  I’m addicted to sprays in the summer, and two […]
