It's World Book Day tomorrow and we're going through the annual trauma with the kids of deciding what they'll dress up as for school. This is what happened last year:

I love this photo. I took it a couple of years ago in Wales when I rented a holiday house with a group of friends. The house is on the National Trust’s gorgeous Stackpole Estate on the Pembrokeshire coast. As we walked down to the beach just after arriving the evening light was beautiful and …
