Ten on the Tenth

Every month Shimelle blogs about ten things on the tenth, if I get time I join in too.

With the weather here in the UK being the worst it has been in memory, as we have just had the wettest April and June on record with July set to follow, I thought I would blog about

Ten things I miss about the British summer.....


1. Welcome shade

2. Barbecues

3. A day at the beach

4. Lying in a deckchair

5.Summer fetes being held outdoors

6. Preventing sunburn with anything!

7. Beach games

8. Wearing shades

9. A dip in the sea

10. Beachcombing

And as these photos show, we did used to have summers here in the UK; come back summer, we miss you......

So many of my UK blogging friends have been posting the same things these past few months - rain, rain, rain! Here in Texas it is HOT, HOT, HOT with a very short shower every once in a while just to keep the humidity unbearable! :>)

Great photos! I hope your miserable weather gets better soon, maybe you will have a gorgeous September?

Jak said...

Great post - I have only worn shades once this year. That is shocking! Love the photos :0)

I'm looking forward to many of those things later this month with our one week vacation at the shore!

Sounds like the UK summer is a lot like summer in the part of WA where I live. We had almost a week of blue sky and sunshine. It's gone now...

Ugh, the weather has really been depressing me the last few days. I really miss the beach too. Our town is getting flooded at the moment. I can't believe the weather is still like this! I love the weymouth shot! x

Cheryl said...

And where I live we're not enjoying many of these things this summer because it's too ridiculously hot. These are beautiful summer memories!

I just hate all this rain right now too Ann
It makes the school holidays so much harder :(

Sabrina Hoglen said...

I would send you some of my summer as I hate it, lol! We need some rain but I do hope it returns to where you are soon!

I think it was me that jinxed the weather - last year I bought myself a lovely table and chairs and made myself a cosy corner in the garden. Ever since then the summers have been rubbish - I am sure if I get rid of them then summer would come back!!
