Late Summer

..............or early Autumn - I'm still not sure.

I wonder how many evenings we will have like this over the next coming weeks?

I could always guarantee the season would be mild up until November 5th (bonfire night) but I'm not too sure this year.

Gale force winds, rain lashing down, the fireplace already cleaned and the heating on - not to mention the numerous hot water bottles made on a daily basis.

I shouldn't grumble - in fact I'm not............really.

It is what it is.

I guess I'm just missing the Summer - what we had of it anyhow. A bit of a contradiction from my last post I guess.

But think evening strolls along the beach, fish and chips on the jetty and the odd crafty half of something whilst the kids play on the sand - that's what I'm thinking about at the moment.

Maybe it's because the rain has scuppered our plans - again - today.

Still, it does feel too early to want to hibernate - even for me. But hibernating is what I want to do.

I know it's going to drive me mad.
