Heading south

I've been counting sleeps!
Yesterday, I put my last edition for now to bed (Sir is back next week) and from today I'm on two weeks' holiday.
As soon as we've finished breakfast, and maybe a coffee, we'll pack and be off.
I've put together a couple of boxes of things to do — watercolours (it's been years and years!), drawing, knitting and crochet — and to read, like the gorgeous cookbooks we got for Christmas and haven't had time to glance at. We've packed the wii and games, I've even dug out my bathers and there's a hat on my bed waiting to be packed.
My eldest son is already down there with our grandson, and our grand-daughter will be with us next week. Lily's coming down with Nick in a few days, and Will will arrive on Monday with two of his mates. My best friend Dace is coming for a weekend, and everyone else is welcome to arrive at a moment's notice.
And on top of all that, we have a forecast maximum of just 29C today (84F) and it's started to rain — very happy.

{Today's lovely pics are of textiles and colours in the home of Scottish designer Fiona Douglas, via Design Sponge. I'm looking at images of bedrooms with an eye to re-painting and brightening up our bedroom down south, and if I could get it to look like this, I'd be in heaven ...}

Sounds heavenly -- have a wonderful holiday! Can't wait to hear about how it all goes and to see the photos (once you're good and ready, of course!).
