Sunshine, Wherefore Art Thou Sunshine?

( And yes, before anyone points it out, i know " wherefore " actually means who, not where. Whatever - it sounded good ).

And yes, this is another rant about the weather - i swear its like my 3rd weather post this summer, and i'm sorry..... but i just cant stand this " English " summer we're having. It is the middle of summer and it is currently 16C outside. I am at work, wearing the same 3 layers i would wear during the middle of winter ( and because our new manager has the air con turned up i am STILL freezing ). Its raining too, and is predicted to continue raining on and off for least a week. This psuedo-summer-may-aswell-be-winter weather is getting me down!

Plus, in 2 weeks Mick and I are taking Flynn away for the weekend for his very first trip to the beach. He's so excited - everytime he sees a picture of a beach, or a beach on tv he gets all bouncy and goes " Mummy - we go to beach! Flynn and Mummy and Daddy! ". Not only will it be his first trip to see the ocean, but it will most likely be the only trip away that Mick and I get this year ( as he is the only driver we have for our delivery service, he cant take holiays or sick leave ). So if i dont get at least one perfect, sunny day when we go to Nelson Bay i am going to be so disappointed. And angry and kind of upset. ( As much as you can get upset and angry with the weather - i mean, there isnt really anyone to blame is there ? )

So - is it just me, or is anyone else getting mildly seasonally depressed this summer? Are the grey days getting you down too? And you could possibly send my family all the good weather vibes you can muster for our beach trip in 2 weeks? Thanks muchly!


  1. Yes, I am over it. And my boys are too, and they are driving me nuts with their cabin fever.....Argghh

  2. We have had 2 days of straight sunshine in QLD and im so happy. Dry washing and the kids can go out and play.
    I know the rain will be back and yes it was quite depressing at times. We couldnt even go to the park.
    I hope the sun comes back where you are soon

  3. You *are* having a typical English summer. That's normal for us and we tend to go a bit crazy if the temperature goes above 21c. It must be incredibly frustrating for you guys though when you're used to summer being a bit different to that! Fingers crossed for decent weather for your trip but I bet Flynn will have a great time whatever the weather's like!

  4. I hear ya! I am so totally over the weather as well. Being stuck in the house with bubs is driving both of us crazy!

    We have also been trying to plan our holiday up to Nelson Bay (I bought a couple of vouchers for 2-night-stays from one of those deal websites. We used one back in August, as our 'baby-moon', it was great!) but I have been holding off on booking because of the weather. I really don't want to go up there for 2 nights and just end up stuck inside the cabin the whole time. That would really suck! I will say some prayers and cross every finger and toy that the weather is kind to you when you go away.
