Yesterday the sun appeared for just long enough to give the suggestion that spring is finally here and summer’s not too far behind. (Today is colder and overcast but I’m ignoring it.) This hint of warmth got me thinking about all the things I’m looking forward to this summer. Pints outside in beer gardens. Trapeze classes with the windows open. Sunglasses, bare legs and shorts. Late night drinks on the harbourside, dangling feet over the edge, always mindful of not dropping flip flops in the water. Camping trips to the sea. Skin being sticky with sun cream. Eating dinner outside in our garden. Those gentle breezes that carry the scent of flowers and cut grass. Taking a picnic to the park to watch the balloons drift over. The cat stretched out in a patch of sunlight, smelling of warm fur and contentment.
