Its the beginning of September, mums are sighing huge sighs of relief as the 12 week long summer holidays draws to a close, the evenings are now pleasantly cool (although it’s still hitting 30º during the day) and there is a definite feeling of rejuvenation in the air ready for the next part of the year. I love this time of year, gone is the overpowering heat of August when even a short walk seemed like too much of an effort!! The days are still warm enough to enjoy the weather and keep the tan topped up but there is a definite chill to the air once the sun goes down. Fans are no longer whirling and the air conditioning units are silent. There was even a covering of due on my car this morning!
Most of the tourists have gone, the locals are venturing out again and best of all, finding a parking space is not a military operation!!!
Over the next 8 weeks or so, quilts will go back onto beds, winter clothes will be dragged out, flip flops will be relegated to the back of the wardrobe and the final sign that summer is over is when we admit defeat and order firewood!!!!! But that’s a while away yet, I’m definitely a summer person and am holding onto every ray of sunshine and every degree of warmth……and god help anyone who mentions Christmas!!!!
