What has Happened to our Summers

Does anyone else remember summers the same as I do, when I was a child I know I spent every day outside during the summer and it was always HOT! my Mum used to pack us sandwiches and a bottle of water and we would go miles and picnic in a field and pick wild flowers and scrump apples and come home hours later dirty, tired and happy after having had a good day and this seemed to be every day. Where I lived in Worcestershire we had a Lido and park and my Mum scrimped and saved to buy us season tickets so that we could swim in the Lido pool every day, we were as brown as berries and totally happy. I can remember the evenings when it was so warm my Mum and Dad would sit outside chatting with the neighbours because it was too hot to go to bed and I can remember dangling my legs out of the covers because it was so hot. What happened to that lovely weather? here we are in the middle of June and its cold and wet and miserable I cannot remember the last time we had a good summer we seem to have an odd day here and there and then it gets cold again I would really love a long hot summer, does anyone else have these memories?

I have my computer back.

What a few days I have had with this computer, it was getting slower and slower and all sorts of funny messages were flashing on screen and eventually all I could get was a black screen and something flashing saying 'Hard Drive Fail' which sounds terminal. My lovely Tony took it to work and the brilliant Declan sorted me out and so my computer is now better.. I have been to Kathleens today and we have been tidying her Garage which is where she has all her fabrics and sewing table and lots of other things that she has gathered over the years so we cleared a lot of the stuff we had a pile for the Tip and another for the charity shop. I took a load to the Tip and my car is now full ready for our next visit to the charity shop. Kathleen made fresh cheese scones which we sampled with our morning coffee they were delicious so a lot was achieved today and there is now room to move around the garage. Our house is not moving yet I think it is going to be a long job.
