Is summer finally here?

A beautiful image of the sun shining of the sea. - This is an image I would love to be able to see often but the closest I have got to this is when I went on holiday!!

Again its nice and sunny here in the UK. It not often nice two days running. I know most of you are used to the sunshine but here in the UK we dont normally see the sun. Normally I find that its nice and sunny when Im working so dont get to see much sunshine. Since Im off today I might nip to the pub where my boyfriend works and spend the day outside having a few drinks to cool me down!! What are you plans today??

Its lovely here in the east midlands too!..its so good to see al bit of sunlight,it lifts everyones spirits !People go out in their gardens and mow lawns,and you can hear the kids layghing while they play.Its so good after many months of being cooped up indoors to be able o open the back door and leave it open.The one bonus is that the heating isnt running for a change,giving the boiler a well desreved rest!!So lets hope we are on the up and up now and maybe at last the weather will turn around a little!

Well it wasn't too nice in my part of Scotland most of the day yesterday and today has been very dull and overcast but it is not as cold as the last few weeks so I am hopeful that summer is on the way - it really better be as my daughter is off to my sisters for the weekend and has insisted on taking summer clothes - I had to sneak a few jumpers in! It definitely feels more summery as I am sitting next to the open window and all I can smell is the scent of fresh cut grass! xxx

Im hoping to pop up and see him some time this year, once Ive saved up the travel expenses!! lol Sounds like you have got a nice peaceful weekend with your daughter going to your sisters prepared for the summer! Im sure she'll be glad you packed those jumpers. Have a great weekend x

We do actually get some nice weather here - when it stops raining long enough! lol I would love to visit the Shetlands and the Orkneys and many of the numerous Islands off our coast - we are right in the middle of the country! lol It is nice and peaceful - even more when my teenage son goes out which he now says he isn't sure he wants to as he is enjoying it just being the 2 of us! xxx

Hello Cinderella! I live in Miami Florida so its pretty much summer here year round. Although I love traveling to see the changing seasons, I really appreciate the great weather I have here (except for the occasional hurricane) and cannot get enough of the ocean and beaches. Enjoy your day outdoors and have one on me!

Sounds great having the sun all year round!! Experiencing the different seasons is nice I like summer and autumn best!! Winter is too cold here and spring tends to rain alot!! Might have to travel to Florida to visit those beaches but would have to be careful as I burn real easily!! Thanks for your comment x

It is great to see some sun here isn't it? I'm probably going to go for a walk with my Mum, but it appears to be getting a bit dull as I type. Oh well, I shall take my brolly as you know it never stays good here.

You have got the sun have you, that is why it is not out in my part of the UK then it must have decided to come and visit you instead!! We have just got a lot of cloud today, but it is warmer than it has been for a while which is great. I love your idea of spending the day in the pub, no chance of that for me though, not with 4 kids, well 3 that are of the too young to do much age anyway!! Well not got anything planned this weekend, we are going away in 3 weeks so its a case of saving all our pennies for that now!! But you go and have a great day and have a drink for me!!

Also here,in Italy, summer is coming. Today there was 26 °C and it's sunny from the last Monday. I think really the summer is coming and I'm really happy! I don't like so much the cold seasons :)

Its not like that here in canada. One weak summer is here next week we go plummet back into december. Don't get me wrong I like the it here but its just the weather changes can get annoying.

I think it might be, as it has been kinda mild in Scotland and as I'm sitting on the computer without wearing jumpers and woolly scoks it must be summer at long last. I fully expect it to be snowing tomorrow however.
