UGG Australia got in touch to ask if I'd like a nice summer day out on them as part of their "Best Days of Summer" campaign - err, yes! I planned it all out: we'd rent a Zipcar, drive out of London to Mayfield lavender farm (which has been on my to-go list forever), have a big lunch in the sunshine and take lots of pretty photos. Sorted!
But I should have known better - this is a British summer. We drove to the lavender farm and pulled into the car park, camera in hand and ready to go. And then it poured.
So, we took shelter in the palm house at Kew Gardens instead and pretended we were in more tropical climbs. I just love that place and could spend hours there if only it wasn't so sticky and hot! The stickiness didn't last long, however - the Texan and I were soaked right through as we ran back to the car!
Thank you, UGG, for a very British best day of summer!
