When I think of summer, I think of sunshine and laughter – frolicking outside in fields and meadows, or on a beach with the waves lapping at my feet. This afternoon, I am feeling very summery. Admittedly I’m not at the seaside, or even outside. I’m sitting at my desk working. But the sun is streaming gloriously through the window (so much so that I’ve had to concede defeat and drop the blind somewhat). I’ve also just laughed very heartily at an email sent by my mum:
‘Edinburgh fringe winner of best joke from Nick Helm “I needed a password of eight characters so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”’
Lol indeed. In fact, I’ve just laughed again when re-reading it.
Sunshine and laughter on a Thursday afternoon feels like summer to me, despite lack of fields, meadows, sea and sand. It’s a good feeling to bask in for a while, before summer’s glow fades away to autumn.
