Blogtember Day 8 Favourite Season

Hi Honeys
Here we are on day 8 of Bailey Jean's Blogtember Challenge, the daily blog prompt challenge for the month of September. 
Blogtember Day 8 my favourite season
Today's prompt is: Tell us about your favourite season? Why is it your favourite season and what does it say about you?

Well dear ones, I don't even have to think about it :) You've probably guessed by the above image that my favourite season is Summer :) Oh to live in a sunny, warm climate all year round! What a joy that must be!

I am a Scot honeys, a very proud Scot.  There are many things I love about my wonderful Country but unfortunately Scotland doesn't get to bask in the sunshine terribly often.  This Summer has been particularly miserable with far too few sunny days and it's already starting to get dark earlier in the evenings and stay dark that little bit later in the mornings.

In Scotland during the winter months we don't see daylight in the mornings until around 9am and it will be completely dark again by 3.30-4pm.  I so dislike the constant darkness. I don't cope very well with it at all.  Or with the cold and constant dampness of winter, it plays havoc with arthritis, not to mention the constant terror of slippery streets! I walk with a cane so the fear of falling is awful

I've said so many times that I wish I was a bear :) I could curl up and hibernate from October straight through till February or March until the sun made a reappearance :) 

So, there it is honeys, my favourite season is Summer, I love the long (sometimes sunny) days, I love the warmth on my skin, I love being able to throw all of the windows open, but most of all I love, love, love to hang my laundry outside :) I adore laundry, I really do, it's what I do for fun :)

Oh to live somewhere I could hang out my laundry all year long :) Till next time dear ones, hugs always xx

    1. It so is! Because so much of the day is spent in darkness the days feel so long too :/ I so love your boards at Pinterest! Also you kinda won me over to autumn :) Our furbaby Jade adores playing in the leaves, usually after her Daddy has spent ages raking them up neatly :) Thank you for visiting honey, it was so sweet of you and means such a lot to me, sending hugs xx

    1. I was thinking that too Veronica, (gorgeous name by the way) but yes everyone who's post I've read seems to love autumn/fall. I'm such a Summer baby! I love the warmth, the flowers all in bloom in the garden (our roses were just stunning this year) I love that it's light till after 9pm, such a joy when it gets completely can't-see-your-hands-in-front-of-your-face dark in Scotland between 3.30-4pm! I suffer through the rest of the year to get to Summer :) Thank you for visiting it was so sweet of you, sending heaps of hugs xx

    1. Hi Leah! Always makes me smile to see you here honey x There was a really famous Scottish postcard years ago, it was divided into four sections, they were labelled Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter. In each section there was a drawing of a wee sheep wearing a rain mac, rain boots and a wee rain hat :) In the first three images it was raining heavily, only difference in the last section was that the rain had been exchanged for snow and the wee sheep had added a scarf to his wee rain mac outfit :) That pretty much described Scottish weather to a tee :) So any sunshine we get here is celebrated :) Our furbaby Jade loves the autumn but only because she loves to play with the leaves :) Thank you for visiting, huggles always honey xx
