For the past two weeks my life has basically consisted of me running around like a headless chicken trying to sort out everything for the sidepiece’s birthday this week. So I feel like I need to take a step back and just stop. Relax. Breathe. That’s better. Summer (what little we’ve seen of it!) is speeding by and I feel like I’ve barely had time to appreciate it. So this post is all about my favourite things about summer.
Is it just me or is it near enough impossible to be in a bad mood when the sun is shining?
Summer makes everyone happy – relaxed, healthier. Content.
I like summer social shindings – pub garden shindings, park shindings, BBQ shindings… basically any kind of shinding involving Pimms or a really good cider. There really isn’t much better than Pimms, a Passion fruit or Elderflower cider, give me either and I’ll be happy as Larry.
I like that the sunlight creeps through the curtains in the mornings, the smell of warm air – a mix of freshly cut grass and BBQs. The smell of summer.
I like that the evenings stay light until almost bedtime and you feel a sense of calm as you crawl under the covers.
Saying that – there is nothing better than a summer storm. Laying in bed with the windows wide open, listening to the rain. Absolute bliss.
That’s my favourite one.
