Now playing// Soundtrack to a grey sky summer

pexels-photoWhen summer arrives, I’m never usually completely satisfied. I have romantic visions of sunny parks brimming with flowers, barbecues and pimms. FRISBEE. The sickly sweet smell of suncream. Maybe even the chance to venture outside without a coat on.

I forget the reality. Skin prickled with goosebumps, the sun staying stubbornly tucked under a cloud. The feeling of water splashing up your legs as you plunge a sandled foot into a muddy puddle.

Constant never-ending DRIZZLY rain.


The grey weather is no excuse to be glum, merely a reason to get snug. I’ll pop on a chunky cardigan, make a coffee, light a candle, stay inside and peep at the grey clouds from behind glass.
