We need a reminder of warm summery days with the windows open and the breeze blowing in.  It is feeling wintry here at the moment and we are glad that the shortest day is coming up.  We shouldn't complain, as it is rather mild here where we live.  We have only ever had a sprinkling of snow here in the last 25 years, and this winter has been rather mild.

Mums body is better suited to winter clothing and she enjoys wearing a big cardigan and boots,  mum enjoys comfort food and it is nice to hibernate and snuggle down in bed with some books and a warm furry cat to cuddle with.  I love having my electric blanket on and a heater to snuggle next too. 

We hope if you live somewhere cold tonight you are warm and cozy and if you live north of the equator and are toasty warm - please enjoy your sunshine and warm summer breezes for us. 


  1. Our longest day is tomorrow..then we loose 14mins a week
    from then on...Goodness! And we've hardly had any summer,
    nice for the next few days, then rain on Sunday..! :(.
    So, have to get things done outside when you can..l'm just
    off for a bit of lunch..then l'll cut the grass out back!
    I say grass..there's more daisies than grass, shame to cut
    them, still, they'll be up again in a few days..! At
    least it'll be nice and tidy..! :).

  2. While I like the warm weather more than I used to, there is still much to be said for cool days and chilly nights. A snug evening at home with the cats is something to look forward to.

  3. poppy Q.....summer starts two morrow for uz but itz mor like fall; which we like
    but most due knot... we hope ewe N mum haza grate week oh end ☺☺♥♥

  4. I like comfort food & winter clothes too Poppy. But I don't like having to keep the house warm all the time, keeping fire wood cut & all the work & dust that goes along with the fire. I do like not having flies in the winter though !!

  5. I'll enjoy our summer sunshine for ya.

  6. So far our summer is cool, cloudy and rainy.

  7. I look forward to the warmer days as well
    Although I do like the short days. I love to snuggle with the blinds drawn and the fire going with my puppy on the couch
