For those of us in the southern hemisphere, we are now unpacking our cotton clothing, dusting off our outdoor chairs and blowing the cobwebs from sun umbrellas. My sun umbrella didn’t make it through this year as I left it open on what turned out to be the type of day that a roof gets blown off. My replacement will be a 1960s/1970s style black and white umbrella which brings back memories of growing up and the graphic print of my mum’s swimsuit mirroring the print on this umbrella.
