Despite the current situation, the summer months seem to have flown by so I thought I’d take a look back at some of my summer memories so far.
One of my favourite things about summer is how beautiful the sunsets can be. Whether that is closer to home or somewhere around the world, each are different and unique.
Exploring with Andy
Exploring new places and rediscovering ones we have visited before has definitely been a highlight for me. I even managed to get out for a couple of walks which is really not his idea of fun.
At the very beginning of summer, I tidied up the old greenhouse at the bottom of the garden and decided to start planting things. I certainly didn’t expect it to go as well as it has and I now love my little greenhouse.
The Garden Bloomed
Following on from the greenhouse, I was able to grow some beautiful flowers and my garden has now become a place of vibrant colours. As a result, I’ve also gained a lot of wildlife too.
Lockdown restrictions eased just in time for us to be able to celebrate mums birthday with a socially distant bbq. It was so great to be able to catch up and have a laugh, all whilst enjoying the delicious food cooked by Andy.
I am a huge aviation fan and so to go so many months without being up close to aircraft was torture. Thankfully a trip to the local airfield to see this beauty visit, soon made me smile.
Great times away
Since lockdown eased, we have been fortunate to go on a couple of staycations. We have been able to see so many lovely things and a visit up north wouldn’t be complete without a trip to RAF Conningsby to see the Lancaster and Spitfires.
Trixie’s first museum
This year, I was planning on taking Trixie to lots of dog friendly places and exploring different areas. Whilst we couldn’t do much of this, we did manage to take Trixie to her first museum, the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre. She seemed to really enjoy her day, despite it raining for most of it.
Summer has been a mixed bag when it comes to the weather, but it hasn’t stopped us making the most of not being at work. What are your memories from the summer?
