‘Summer, Summer, Summer time! So just sit back and unwind.’
Yes, it’s that time of the year again where we hope the sun comes out and stays out and England win the world cup!
All you need is a little bit of faith in our good old British weather and don’t always trust the weather forecast because if you’re waiting for the perfect summer day for that bbq – you’re going to be waiting a while. We were expecting thunderstorms and rain this afternoon in Birmingham, and we had a birthday bbq planned…but we thought to hell with it, we’re going to have a bbq come rain or shine and lo and behold the weather stayed up! It was sunny and there wasn’t a drop of rain in sight and certainly no thunderstorms. So Mr Weather man you aint always right huh!
Before the bbq I took the Labradors out for a run around the local park and spotted a lady foraging elderflower, there were daffodils in full bloom, some blue berries, a growing wilderness of grass and shrubbery, miles of beautiful outstretched field and one happy dog with his tongue hanging out in glee. Yes, it was quite simply a beautiful, simple, British Summer day…..ahhh I’m feeling all patriotic so here’s hoping England thrash Italy tonight…because all you need is a sprinkle of hope and a dash of faith and anything is possible!
