Summer is drawing to an end

Well its September but there is no sign that autumn will be arriving any time soon. The thunderstorms finally stopped about the end of July and since then we’ve hardly had a drop of rain and with day time temperatures still reaching 30C it still feels very much like it is still the middle of summer.There are signs that winter…

June all ready

Can’t believe it’s June all ready, where has the year gone.
