I really must make sure I watch the auto correct thingy on today’s Monday Madness as it seems rather keen on changing wellies to ….well lets see if it sneaks in. I don’t think anyone can fail to have missed the change in the weather. I know we all hold on to the hope that summer will last for ever and we cling to the hope of one last BBQ and put off putting away our summer clothes. But there is no room for doubt now, autumn is well and truly here.
But of course we don’t have a normal transition into autumn. I was lying in bed yesterday morning hearing the storms going on outside. Thunder, lightening, lashing rain and howling wind. Not a good recipe for a trip to town with the kids and yet they still wanted to go. Being completely prettified of thunder and lightening I donned my big girl pants and got prepared. Winter coat and brollies at the ready.
I then proceeded to resemble a boil in the bag dinner as I sweated and fanned my way around the shops. It had stopped raining, the wind, thunder and lightening had vanished. Sun beat down and temperatures rose. The weather has gone mad. Long gone are the days when summer was sunny, autumn beautifully transforms into the cold winter and then warm spring. You could wake up, look out the window and be dressed for the weather for the day. Now you have to be prepared for all the seasons in one day.
But in all this weather madness autumn is trying to do its thing and I do love autumn. I love the evenings getting darker, putting the house to bed in the evenings and rain beating against the windows. makes me feel all snug and cosy wrapped up in my blanket on the sofa.
What’s your favourite season?
Oh and I managed all that with out wellies turning into willies.
