Blinding Spring

Why so bright?

I got too used,
To that lovely soft lighting,

Now this blinding light is being forced upon me,
And there goes my air conditioning;

At least, in Scotland,
Summer only lasted 3 months,
And began in May;
There was no Spring;

So whilst you’re out there,
Enjoying the Summer months,
Spare a thought,
For those who are constantly too hot.

    1. Cool! πŸ˜„, yes, same! That bit of autumn when the leaves look amazing is my favourite time of year, then mid-winter!

      1. Nice, thank you Ember! It was quite frustrating and unproductive yesterday, actually. But from midday decided I needed to let myself relax as much as possible for a few days πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Robin, sorry to hear that you got frustrated, and I hope you were able to relax and enjoy the weekend. My sister is staying with us for a few days, and it is so lovely to see her. We are going to go into Norwich today to do some shopping and sightseeing. I hope you have a good day too.

  2. Thank you, Robin, we had a lovely time, including a visit to Norwich cathedral. I’m glad you had a good weekend and I hope you have enjoyed today as well. I bought a sketchbook today and I am going to start doing some drawing tomorrow. I am useless at drawing but I have had an idea that I want to try to put into pictures. I see that you have started keeping a journal. That’s so great. I hope that you are enjoying that.

      Actually, drawing is something I’d like to do as well. I’ve been getting too stressed about stressful tasks that I have to do, and not getting around to anything that I actually want to do at all, except for writing, but even then it’s been restrained to stress-relieving things. I had some documents folders sent to me recently, and in the box with those was some drawing paper and pencils I’d bought years ago, with the plan to try drawing!

      I’ve resolved today to just ignore those important tasks, and try to get help with them through a charity instead, so that I can focus on actually doing these things that I need to do for my mental health πŸ™‚. So hopefully I’ll join you with the drawing! πŸ˜„.

      Indeed, yes, I’d started a journal! That’s also slipped, but I’ll get back to that too now, thanks for reminding me πŸ™‚.
