The three of us at tracks of foxes aim to share with you some crafty projects we’ve been putting our hands to, some adventures we’ve been spending our time on, we also thought we’d share with you some of the stuff that fills our stereos, book shelves, screens and tummy’s on emotional days, hope you might identify with some days like these.
Here comes the sun.. doo doo doo doo!
The weather has been utterly glorious of late, some might say even too glorious. I noticed an ‘It’s too hot’ swear jar somewhere. It’s enough to make a little girl from Aus nostalgic and homesick.
Here are a few ways you could be spending your time while you navigate making the most of the beautiful sun and not melting!
- 50ml/2fl oz tequila
- fresh orange juice, to top up
- 1 tbsp grenadine (sometimes I leave this out)
… maybe with some of these ice cubes Hanna made last summer, except with raspberries?
A beautiful little virgin punch… mix up some orange juice with bits, tropical juice, any juice and add some ginger ale and some raspberries. YUM!
VIETNAMESE! This weather makes me crave vietnamese bun noodles. Beautiful cold rice vermicelli noodles with pork, spring rolls and fish sauce.
If you want to make it yourself here is a little recipe.
Otherwise a little place that does good pan asian street food is ‘Kin’ found on Leather Lane in Farringdon.
Or else Kingsland Rd in Shorditch is chockas full of more Vietnamese restaurants than you can count.
Getting ready for End of the Road this year…

SWIM!!! Hampstead Heath Ponds or the Lido.. but if they’re a bit too packed for your liking last summer Hanna mentioned ‘Wild Swimming’, you can also get a nifty app for it if you have an android that tells you your nearest wild swimming hole! Wooo! But say, ‘No!‘ to skin cancer and ‘Slip on a shirt, Slop on some sunscreen and Slap on a hat’. Can you tell I grew up in Aus?
And probably when it is just a little too hot sit inside with a beer, an ice cream and a book… depending on how many hands you have?
Enjoy the gift of the sun while it lasts, stay hydrated, sun protected, drink lots of beer, eat ice cream and please, please wear deoderant!
