I thought the above quote was perfect to start off this quick roundup of my day because I'm beginning to think summer might be ending rather than starting! It's definitely cooler here and has been wet & windy for a couple of days. There's conkers on the trees and the brambles are almost ready for their flowers to turn to berries! It's only July! I've also been thinking about the cooler months as I've started preparing for the inevitable Christmas posts (eek) and AW15 ranges.
So while you might be planning your summer holidays I'm already looking for thick blankets and wondering how I'm going to stop the roof leaking! Isn't that ridiculous? Hopefully nature will decide that we've got at least another 2 months of summer weather before it really turns, but at the moment the signs here are pointing to a very early Autumn!
One thing I can't blame on the weather though is my clumsiness! I fell flat on my face, as I literally tripped over thin air. I haven't done that in a very long time, and as I sat on the pavement with grazed hands and knees (hoping no-one had seen me fall) I definitely felt like a child again! I can confirm that I now have one hell of a bruise blooming on my knee, so that's going to be looking lovely tomorrow.
I hope the weather is still summery with you, it can't be time to put away the shorts and sandals just yet!
Stay safe, x
