Summer is nearly over here in the UK and I have to question , where has the time gone ? We have had some rare days of sunshine and a lot of rain and like today quute a few cloudy days. The British weather is so unpredictable, take this weekend for instance we went to a bootsale to buy some succulents and we took Archie with us. I had a cardigan on but in the boot of the car I had a rain coat and umbrella as the weather looked slightly dodgy. The sun came out and it was really warm as we were walking around and we managed to sit outside at the pub with the puppy for lunch and it was so Sunny. We got home and the heaven’s opened. We have not been away this Summer, John couldn’t get time off but he has some time off in September so we are hoping to have a few days away. The shops are full of school supplies and I remember as a girl getting excited to go and buy new pens and pencils to take to my new class. There are sales in the shops now of the Summer stock and the Autumn and Winter seasons clothes and home wares are out. Someone posted that they have Christmas cards in their local card shop.
I feel like Summer has passed us by so fast, as has the year, it seems like only yesterday I was packing away the Christmas tree! I wonder how any Mum’s can’t wait for their kids to go back to school , I feel for parents during the Summer holidays when the weather is so horrible as the kids can’t let off steam outside.
I had Archie this year so we knew we wouldn’t be going abroad and we have no plans to for the next few years. I have missed stepping out of the plane and feeling the heat hit you in the face !
Hopefully we will have a few more days of sunshine before Autumn.
So I am trying to squeeze a little more Summer out of August if possible. Please can we have some sunshine ! I am not ready to get the throws out or turn the heating on and cook comfort food , I want a picnic, ice cold drinks and a walk by the river ….
