Dreaming of sunnier days

Rain Rain go away come again another washing day....Its official, I am now totally fed up with the rain, even my children pull back my bedroom curtains in the morning and the youngest goes 'Mommy its gloomy' followed by my eldest saying 'again Mom' Not only is it wet its dull, which makes for not very good quality pictures, which is why I am posting pictures of what I think we should be doing at the moment, enjoying the outdoors.
Oh for the smell of suncream, sand between your toes (and every place else). Happy little people, no need for toys or telly, just good old fashioned fun.
Lots of picnics with fresh salad and cooling drinks, the colours of summer towels and beach windbreaks, ice cream stains of grubby T Shirts, feeling the wind blowing in your hair and the warmth of the rays on your face as people smile and children giggle.
Oh how I long for those days of summer, where are they?

I feel the same way. I wonder where the sunny summer days are gone. I long for nice, sunny and warm days.
Have a great weekend.

Certainly not here today, although i have been wearing sandals anyway coz they dry out quicker than shoes!! Did have some sun the other day though which was very nice.

Oh, I'm longing and dreaming of real summer too! Here in southern Norway, it's been raining just as much as it has been there in the UK. Hoping so much the sunshine will return and we can sneak in some summer fun--picnics, daytrips, even walks!--before fall gets here! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today--so nice to meet you! I look forward to joining you in another cuppa here! :o)

Fingers crossed those days will be here for the summer holidays. I feel exactly the same - enough is enough, we spend so much time in this country waiting for a few weeks of sun! Love those kind of days that end with grubby t shirts and sun kissed faces.

Oh yes rain, rain go away .... this summer has been a bit of a wash out this year. So far that is, hoping for brighter days.

I wish I would send you some sun. It is scorchingly awful here. No gloom in site, ever. I love overcast gloomy days... Why can't we just trade off??? xxo
