This weather!!

When I finished last term, I promised myself that, from now on I wouldn't take any notice of the weather. Now that I don't need to dread 'wet play' it really doesn't matter what the weather is doing - snow in July, hurricanes in August - no problem! Who cares? I can handle it!
However, I have found myself forced to pay some small degree of attention to the elements lately if only because I can't remember the last time we had such a damp and dismal summer! When it comes to having to put the light on at 7.30 on an early August evening to do my blogging, there is something wrong somewhere.
Personally, I blame the Weather Pixie. There she stands on my blog looking as though butter wouldn't melt...innocence personified! It's got to stop, my girl! We need some decent weather and we need it NOW!!!! Please????

I read your note in my blog (Wifely Steps). Thanks for linking me! I find your blog interesting too and will link you back later on! Thank you for the kind birthday greetings and I hope your August birthday will also be full of love and happiness :)

We were looking around for lightbulbs yesterday not having needed the lamp on for months. I've never known the weather to be so damp and yet so hot for so long. The weather forecast this morning is going for it to stay like this into next week..... I'm off to buy some more fans...
