Summer is finally here she says as a storm rolls in...! I know, I know, but the temps are still in the 20s so who cares. You're probably thinking what, summer was last week for us. Well, true, but I've been upt north getting blown to bits, walking in drizzle, sloshing through mud and praying every second (it seemed at the time) for the teeniest break in the clouds so I could vary up my landscape shots. Amazing what you wish for when you're in the only part of the country that isn't sunning itself! You couldn't write it, honestly, you couldn't. Anyway, more on that in my next post because despite the weather, we were successful in what we set out to do.
As we drove back down the country north to south, it was glorious weather and you could feel the temperature rising (which always cheers me up). The different counties we passed through looked splendid in the sunshine and the colours so vivid everywhere I looked. I wanted to sing out loud - although that would have put Colin off his driving, I'm sure. Anyhoo, after unpacking the car, I hit the shops and bought all the goodies of summer I could find. My kitchen was a mass of colour as I found homes for it all. Notice the chocolate in the fridge. Haven't had any melting mishaps since March. Yes, it really has been that long! (Remember I was in Cuba exploring Trinidad in the pouring rain when you had 28 degrees back here during that week in May).
And now the sun is back out again so all is right in my world.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
