The last official day of summer was Saturday 28 February. I’m not sad at all. I’m ready to move on. It’s not you summer – it’s me! Nothing personal but I just don’t like you much!
You do have your good points summer – um let’s see: there’s swimming and floating in my pool – yes I do like that. Oh and there is the annual renewed love of air-conditioning! um … err … that’s it!
I’m afraid your bad points outweigh the good for me – um lets see: the heat and humidity that makes me sweat and feel unattractive, the heat and humidity that makes going for long walks impossible unless I rise before the sun, the heat and humidity that makes sleeping at night uncomfortable, the heat and humidity that makes me need to wear clothing that is cool but yet not flattering, the heat and humidity that sucks the life and energy out of me!
Look summer, we’re kinda just not compatible! I’m an autumn, spring and winter girl you see. They are much more civilized and kind to me! I do live in Brisbane though where these seasons are mild, sunny and beautiful! 😉
By the way Summer, I think the fact that you’re giving us a heatwave later this week after you’re supposed to be gone is mean and nasty yet it does not surprise me. You’ve done it before haven’t you. It seems that Thursday will be the worst day and guess what – I’ve got it covered – my sister is coming over and we’re totally spending the day in the pool. Your last ditched effort to beat me will fail, fail, fail. Be gone with you summer and come hither autumn!!
To soften the blow of my honesty, summer – here are some photo’s of some of my favourite times we had together this past season – a little reminiscing if you like!

Here’s a collage of some phone snaps of around my pool at home that were posted to Instagram over the summer months.
Here’s some photo’s from our lovely 5 day pre-Christmas escape to Burleigh Heads in December 2014.
It’s so gorgeous at Burleigh Heads isn’t it? You know what though … it doesn’t need to be summer to enjoy those outlooks! 😉
Farewell summer – no need to rush back. Take your time, ok!
Ciao for now,
