Essence of summer – a reflection

summer

When I first read yesterday’s prompt ‘essence of summer’ my instinct was to  make a list of things I love about summer (open windows, days out, flowers, cloudless skies…you get the picture) but I didn’t have time to finish the post and it never got published. So, today I reflected on the list, and while everything on it still stands, there is only really one thing that describes the essence of summer for me and that is time with my family.

From mid-July there is no school for 6 weeks and my husband and I have as much time off work as possible. We have a holiday planned, a week in Scotland, and the rest of the time will be filled with lazy days (oh, the joy of not having to get up for anything), trips to the seaside and just generally spending time together. Years go by so fast, our boy will be 15 next birthday, so I am going to cling onto our time together this summer like my life depends on it and savour every single minute.

  1. The years do fly by so quickly don’t they! Enjoy the coming summer break, savour and cherish your family time, especially your week in Scotland. What part are you visiting? My family are all originally from the borders (Hawick).

    1. It sure does! Can’t wait to be off work!! We are staying in Callander which is in the Trossachs, truly stunning scenery…so giddy! : )))
