The Summer of Straw

Summer is upon us, the sun is shining (thank goodness) and nothing says summer more than a bit of straw. While you may not need your regular handbag – I haven’t used one for months now – a straw number is useful for bunging everything in for those inevitable park trips and  will make you feel like you’re on holiday. Even though you aren’t. But fingers crossed you will be by the time the schools are out and we are all well and truly in need of a break from the Corona-coaster that we are all riding…
