This time last year, in this heat, I would have to lug drinks, snacks, paddling pool, slide and anything else that was needed to sit outside in the communal area. This time last year, it was normal for me to do it.
Yesterday was hot, so hot we opened up the backdoors from 8am and closed them at 9pm. It still is a bit overwhelming when I say I have a back garden. Some may say “get a grip” but really they have no understanding what it was like to live in a 2 bed flat with little space. This time last year we were still in that flat sweating away. Our sale had not completed and we were starting to think we would never, ever move.
Yesterday was bliss.. Mr B took Moo and H to the park, I tidied up the downstairs, hoovered and mopped. I was done by 10:30 and decided I would blow up the pool. Once everyone was back home, we had lunch and spent the day in the garden, our garden. Moo and H were in and out, me and the Mr lapped up the sun.
Moo loves the paddling pool and it isn’t the first time she has had it out this week. In fact the weather has been so nice she has had it out for the last 3 days. Summer has finally arrived and this is what i have been waiting for. Long summer days in the garden, with the people I love the most. Its everything I have wanted in such a long time and we finally have it. This is our first full summer in the house and so far, its not too shabby..
