Summer Time! (Allegedly)

Good Things about Summer in the UK
~ People are in better moods
~ Being outside and seeing everyone in brighter clothing
~ More energy to be outside and enjoy yourself
~ The beautiful BBQ smells when you walk down the street
~ Carnivals and funfairs!

Bad Things about Summer in the UK
~ You have to make the most of the one or two days of 20+ degree weather because you will have rain for the next two or three weeks.
~ Spiders
~ Sod's Law that states as soon as you clean your car your entire windscreen will be covered in bird poo the next day.
~ Being on the trains and buses surrounded by sweaty people (at 5ft1 I am constantly underneath the armpits of people holding onto poles and bars)

Go ahead and add to the list!

Hi Naina! Thanks so much for visiting my blog :) I read your story summary on the right over there and the I think your book sounds fantastic! Will be following you :)

Hi Naina...enjoyed your post. I adore the unique slant you bring to things. I am sure your book will be filled with wonderful descriptions. Read about it on your sidebar. It sounds great.

Hi Julie - Welcome to my blog new friend.

Hi Rachna - My slant on things is sometimes so unique that a lot of people don't understand what I am talking about. I'm sure some people do the fake laugh for my benefit.

And to the both of you, glad you like the summary!

Are you sure it's even summer? I have my doubts...

Naina Gupta said...

I have my doubts too, that's why I wrote allegedly.
It is June, after all so technically it should be.
I'll be honest with you Talli - it was easier to write the bad stuff than the good stuff about summer.
