A couple of weeks ago we had a lot of rain and I found myself longing for the summer which looked like it was well and truly over at that point.
But after the rain the weather became so mild and so welcome, the winter will seem so much shorter if this continues.
Today, the sun shone all day and it was warm and balmy here, we soaked up the last drops of the sun on the seafront, having lunch, drinks and of course the obligatory ice-cream.
It really felt like summer again. I'm going to remember this one fondly, where we crammed such a lot into our days, I even have a little tan this year from running around after TC in the fresh air and swimming in the open air pool near where we live. I also have very attractive stripey feet from my collection of sparkly flip-flops.
I'm going to miss you Summer, you were so generous with your favours this year. But Autumn is also a lovely time of year, the leaves are starting to fall from our trees, turning into their golden and red seasonal hues. The crops in the fields are being harvested too, a sure sign a change is on its way.
Sparkly flip-flops and sun hats have been put away again, but Autumn when you see Winter approaching please can you tell it to play nice this year!
