Things I love during the summer

* A cup of piping hot tea to start the day.

* Warm evenings sat in the back garden watching butterflies flit by.

* Running wild and free through long grass in the fields near our house.

* Camping with trust-you-with-anything friends.

* Homegrown fruit and veg. That actually look and taste like they should do and not like they were created in a lab at the back of the supermarket.

* All of us singing at the top of our voices in the car with the windows open. Current tracks of choice: Pink’s So What and Duran Duran’s Rio. Really really loud.

* Wearing flip flops everywhere.

* Waterfights.

* Picnics in the woods followed by a game of cricket.

* Massive homemade ice cream sundaes (or Saturdays or Mondays . . . ) with sauce and crushed meringue and sprinkles.

* Impromptu barbecues.

I also opened this question up to Twitter and asked ‘what things do you love about summer?’
