#FRIDAYFAVES: 5 Things I Love About Summer

It's been warmer here in Scotland recently, almost like we've had an actual Summer - strange. Of course, being British, everyone has basically whined about the heat and the sun as a nice change from whining about the rain and the wind and so I decided it'd be nice to do a post on what I love about Summer, rather than how annoying midges are.

1 // LONG SUMMER DAYS


More important to me than what the weather is like through the day, I just love how light it is for so long. It's so much nicer to wake up in the daylight and not with several hours more of darkness ahead of you like some crazy mole person. I always feel like I get so much more done in a day in the Summer because it feels like there just is so much more of a day I guess!

2 // BEING OUTDOORS MORE


 I know technically you can go outside no matter what the weather and hey, I'm not against a walk in the rain on occasion, but let's face it, isn't it much nicer to play on the beach or walk through the parks with the sun beating down on your face instead of the rain? I spend so much more time outside when the weather is like this and I love exploring all the areas around me - you forget just how nice your local beach is, or how much fun it is just wandering aimlessly for hours don't ya.

3 // PICNICS AND BARBECUES

Out enjoying a picnic with my Mummy

I love eating outside - it takes me right back to my childhood! I love packing a picnic and carrying it along the beach until you find the perfect spot and then getting sand in all the sandwiches. Or getting a barbecue all ready and waiting, and waiting for it to heat up - all the while getting hungrier - and then the satisfaction of eating that burger when it's finally ready! I love food, I love cooking new things and going to restaurants but nothing compares to the simple joys of picnic sandwiches and barbecued hot dogs.

4 // AWL DA CAYUTE FURRY ANIMOS


I love how alive everything is in the Summer, from all the flowers being in bloom, and the birds nesting outside my room and yes *sigh* even all the insects. I'm lucky to live semi-rurally where there are deer, badgers squirrels and birds of prey galore and Kenny and I love spotting something furry when we're on our walks - especially the deer, my absolute favourites. I think seeing other life all around makes me appreciate the beauty and fragility of my own life 

5 // ICE CREAM

Yup probably my favourite 'naughty food' is ice cream - Ben and Jerry's preferably! I eat erm... more than I should but in Summer you know, at least it seems kind of justified and normal... well, sort of. But let's face it, nothing beats ice cream on a hot day; trying to eat it before it melts, getting it all over your face and spilling the chocolate stuff all down your nice Summery white dress... or maybe that's just me, and yes, that's why I mostly still wear black even in Summer!

So what are your favourite things about Summer?
