Having discovered that winter has really gone, spring sprang in and out again quickly, and now summer has definitely come and we are already being bombarded with suggestions for the Christmas festivities. Even more annoying was seeing a delivery made to a famous high street toiletries store – it included chocolate fondant eggs for their storage rooms! I know now that’s what all stores do when they want to discount them just before the season actually begins. Bring out old stock. Never mind, we won’t even think about that in the winter when the fire is wafting heat and joy through the flames. We will have forgotten about he searing heat and humidity. We might just remember this summer though, it has been filled so far with much football – world cup year. Wonder if we’ll still be cheering a victory in November, when it’s dank, cold and miserable every morning?
