Four seasons in one day

Stormy – a morning of thunder and building storm clouds as children torment each other and drag heels at getting ready for school.

Clearing showers – on the promise of meeting up with Duyvken and eleanorfromthecommentbox (she took photos as evidence).

Extended sunny periods – a few hours spent at Duyvken’s house drinking tea and eating cheeses.

Cloudy – children picking up where they left off when picked up from school.

Oppressive humidity – the reality that Chef was having dinner here while I went to a school end-of-year concert with three children in tow.

Southerly change – the promise of a glass of wine and children going to bed.
