sun equals happiness, and that’s a fact in the UK

Seems like when the weather is nice EVERYBODY leaves their business and relocates to the nearest park, garden, patch of grass or just open space under the sun. Parks are jammed, beer and bbq coal disappear from all shops with the speed of light, sunshine that is. Last year, we hardly understood what this fuss was all about. Now we know.

Now. We. know. And we make sure we get to the park first, armed with all picnic paraphernalia, which patiently awaits these exact moments to fulfill its destiny. So in the 1 good week, to be exact, the 10 sunny and warm days that this year offered to the poor Mancunians, we did take a full advantage. Plans were made by the day (as there is no such thing as planning in advance, I tell you, those clouds are quicker than my mind!) and lunch was packed quickly (usually a healthy sandwich, a box of home made salad, cut fruit, beer, croissants, nuts, fresh squeezed juice, etc). For a fancy day at the park, we would have fresh fish, on skewers, bread rolls (ah, so yummy when done on the fire) and plenty of toys for Sami, who runs around like a wild beast on the highly populated lawn.

Now that the rain has taken over the island and over our hearts, we are left with the nice memories of hanging out with friends in the sun, and with the even nicer tingling expectation of what’s to come…
