With sunshine promised this week it’s time to prepare for baring more skin. I have used my faithful and easy to apply tanning cream by Vita Liberata, for a subtle hint of colour and confidence, and it’s now time to bring the summer clothes down from the attic storage.  If they still fit, after my winter feasts, I am looking forward to being reintroduced to…
