A bit of summer sun and warmth does wonders for ones soul. It’s funny how as a child those summer holidays seem to last for ever. The weather was great, and a good day was spent at home in the garden, splashing about in paddling pools and hosepipes. I can remember as a child having a pole that you connected the hosepipe to once it was stuck into the ground, and the water then came shooting out the top in shower spray. Great fun, back in the day before hosepipe bans were commonplace as they are today. Despite the recent run of good weather, I can’t see it lasting. Why would it, the school hols are looming fast. Guaranteed these days to make it rain for weeks on end!
