No matter how strongly the sun is shining, you know it’s only a matter of time before it starts raining again. After all, it is the Great British Summer!
Even as I write this, I’ve just had to dash outside to bring the sun lounger in. What started out as a glorious August morning has turned into an unpredictable day swinging between toasty sunshine and spots of rain. Oh well, it started brightly!
When I used to visit my Gran in the summer holidays, we’d look out on rainy days to see ducks merrily gliding along the river at the end of the garden. They’d be swimming along in the rain, diving in, in search of food or an unlucky holiday maker handing out bread under cover of a large umbrella. I’d huff and slouch my shoulders at another day wasted and my Gran would cheerfully say ‘well, it’s good weather for ducks.’
So maybe, it’s time to stop frowning at the rain clouds and embrace the British weather.
And perhaps, it’s also time to invest in a good anorak and wellies!
