Well, believe it or not, tomorrow will be Midsummer's Day here in England. That is a joke - right?! Midsummer?? Summer hasn't even started yet in my little corner of the world. It is still really chilly (people have actually got their central heating turned on in the evening!) and it's raining heavily as I look through the window to the rather soggy garden outside :(
Of course, we had twelve wonderful days back in April, when it really was beach weather every single day and, fortunately, the family were staying with us from France, so we took full advantage. But was that it - was that our summer for the year?! I shall live in hope that things will brighten very soon.
Also tomorrow is my Midsummer Cream Tea, which I am holding on behalf of Children's Hospice South West. I don't think many people will be walking round the garden, unless another little miracle happens, as it did on the day of my daughter's wedding. (We are still counting our blessings for the weather that day!).
Yesterday was number 1 daughter's birthday, and today would have been my dear mum's birthday. She was actually born 100 years ago today! Happy birthday mum - we all still love and miss you every day.
