I love Summer, Sunshine, and Sunflowers.
At this time of year, I get up at 5.30 am (as I do every day of the year), pull on a T shirt, a pair of shorts, and my old pumps, and I'm ready to face the day.
As we approach full-on Summer, we have suddenly realised that our diary is much fuller than we'd anticipated.
Kimbo and the boys arrive any day, we have a big wedding to attend, and we have more parties and dinner-parties on the horizon than is decent.
On top of all that there are village fêtes, boot sales, and al-fresco meals to be attended; not to mention several other visitors.
We also plan to visit various restaurants that we have ignored for the past few years, although when we'll get time to do so, I'm not sure.
We have a field of Sunflowers in front of the house this year, so the above is now what we look out upon. It looks like the next couple of months will be non-stop misery.
Now, where are my swimming things?
