Goodbye Summer

One of those rare sunny days in Bath
As weather warnings are being issued up and down the UK, it seems only natural to realise that this is the end of summer. It’s been a blast, sure – those three days we had of sunshine are going to be missed as the days grow increasingly shorter. But it’s not all doom and gloom. If you’re anything like me, the end of summer also means the start of acting normal again. I can sit inside watching Netflix, eating pie and no one can tell me I’ve ‘wasted a day’ just because the sun is out. Not that I let that stop me, of course. Other normal activities include drinking my weight in hot chocolate with squirty cream and marshmallows, buying fluffy bed socks and then ruining them in the tumble drier, having a sort through of all my clothes to put away ‘as the seasons change’ only to discover that September will no doubt have at least three heat waves.

What else will I miss from summer? I went to the beach twice, that was pretty cool. I went to the pier with Dylan and spent a small fortune on Mr Whippy, and then we went to the arcade which I instantly regretted as soon as I caught sight of the Sonic the Hedgehog ride. We played with other kids’ toys on the beach, and jumped on sandcastles and generally caused all kinds of havoc. Dylan has also been on plenty of long walks with various other family members while I was busy selling face creams to the masses.

I’m really looking forward to autumn, as always. Dylan’s birthday, my birthday, going to see Hot Chip, a family wedding and then winter will roll round before we know it and it’ll be mulled cider for everybody. There’s the carnival, fairs and other brightly coloured fun going on, and I can get my fluffy scarf out of its box and feel all snug again on those idyllic family walks we sometimes have.

What are you looking forward to in autumn? Or do you want summer to last a bit longer?
