Ahhh, it’s getting chilly in the Norther Hemisphere again so I’m dreaming of being back in Sri Lanka. I’ve not been since 2012 – which is a really long time for me. I usually go every year around my birthday in August.

But last year I was fooling about in New York instead. Drinking cocktails on the roof of the Met is definitely not to shabby a way to spend your natal anniversary.

But it has left me a little short on gorgeous Sri Lanka time. So this week, we’re back there again. Come and get your toes in the sand – listen to the waves and take in the heat. Feel it get back into your bones. Doesn’t it allow a little part of you that’s tightened up against the winter to unclench for just a minute.

Mmm, warm weather. It really is what I’m all about…
