I'm feeling dreamy at the moment for those long late warm summer nights with lanterns in the trees and sunny garden fun. . . . .
I went at the beginning of Summer to a local outdoor cinema. It was in a beautiful park right next to the river Thames on one side and an old church on the other. You could either sit on deckchairs or on some giant beanbags, buy some beer or wine, crack open the popcorn and enjoy the evening!
It took a little while for the sun to go down- when you discover that YES you should have brought a bigger jumper. We watched The Artist which was really great- for the rest of the summer they showed mostly old school movies like The Goonies, Back to the Future and Dirty Dancing so I may have to head back with a hoodie next time!
It did get me thinking though how much fun it would be to do something similar in your own garden. Get some friends round, make some popcorn, get some lanterns out and either use a big screen or just wheel the TV into the garden! I'm pretty down for the idea. You know, next Summer. If it happens.
