An Unusual Bank Holiday Visitor!


IcecreamvanAs a headline in a tabloid newspaper once put it “Phew What a Scorcher!” The weather this weekend has exceeded all expectations and we’ve enjoyed the company of an unexpected visitor, the sun! Lets hope it chooses to visit a few more times this summer…

What has happened I can’t rightly say,
But the weather’s been perfect this Bank Holiday.
The beaches have been busy, We’ve all seen the sun,
A most unusual visitor has uplifted everyone.
Around the rusty barby the chatter has been loud
Oblivious to the forming of large smokey cloud
Down by the ice cream van see the children swarm
Most can’t remember it being this warm!
We can just hope (according to Frank’s mum):
“A fine Bank Holiday is the sign of better things to come!”
