There is something very wrong about this morning. It’s seven o’clock on the first Friday in July and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. Not even a hint of Santa’s beard, or a single strand of goat hair, nothing. Now I realize that those of you who live in sunny climes will be wondering what I’m on about, but for the whole of this summer we have yet to enjoy what one may term ‘a summer’s day.’ At the car boot sale a fortnight ago it was like November (see picture below of a frozen Michelle on 22nd June!) So this morning is special, “Hello Summer! What took you so long…”
I know I should be writing,
A verse for you all to enjoy,
But the weather outside is glorious,
hardly seen since I was a boy!
I hear the mower calling,
The barbecue is shouting too,
Can’t remember if there’s charcoal,
I suppose that wood would do!
I’ll have to find the garden chairs,
and cushions to prevent a numb-er,
If you’re passing do drop by,
And share our day of summer!
Here’s wishing you and yours a great weekend, may the sunshine continue (and Happy Birthday to friend Blair who is joining us for a barbecue later…. now where did I put those chairs!)
