Weekly Photo Challenge: Warmth

Leave a comment

I can’t help myself. This week’s challenge is Warmth and while the Northern hemisphere is freezing, I thought I’d post a photo of something to encourage you to look to the future. SUMMER IS COMING!

Mad Dogs and Englishmen (and women)go out in the midday sun

Mad Dogs and Englishmen (and women)go out in the midday sun

This was taken at Brighton Pier England a couple of years ago. The mercury reached up to 40 degrees centigrade that summer! I often wonder about the woman in the front. And all the other crazies in the deck chairs soaking up the sun. Were they hospitalised for severe sunstroke?
I live in the Southern Hemisphere and we know that the sun isn’t the friend it used to be. But the English… All they need is a brushing with a tasty baste!

Warmth indeed! Take care when the snow melts and the freeze is forgotten and you are off on your vacation.

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!
