Summer Sucks (and so does Blogger)

I had diligently typed up a witty and interesting post this morning and knowing that I was on a 'flow' with words did not bother to draft the post when I was uploading photos. The Blogger swallowed up the whole thing when I hit publish - it would not let me hit a 'back ' button to retrieve it so I’m pretty pissed off with that and with the upcoming elections and campaign policies being blasted outside from car and truck speakers I’m ready to crack at someone. Jude - deep breath - and r-e-l-a-x..
Over the weekend I spent some time out at my parents. My girls thoroughly enjoyed exploring my mothers wall to wall lined lilac garden and feeling the grass between their toes. I have a problem with summer though, the heat makes me irritable, headachy and tired but I soldier on and not try to let it bog me down. In the rush of trying to get the girls ready and out the door I forgot to put on sun screen and in turn I ended up looking a bit like Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters (thank the gods for SPF in foundation) lobster red down one side.

What is it with people in the pursuit to bake themselves every 12 months? I am quite bewildered as to why people, although using sunscreens, will work themselves down factorwise to expose the skin to fry slowly. You see them everywhere in sun chairs , in the park, sprawled fingers catching every ray of sunshine there is to be had. I myself have never sunbathed since I was about 12 so I have very pale skin but I’m comforted in the fact that I wont age prematurely in that respect. A sun and sand holiday is my idea of hell and I find myself pining for the smell of smouldering autumnal leaves, the sharp orange coldness of the teatime sun of October and the heavy rainfall of November nights. I don’t think I suffer from seasonal adjustment syndrome its just all this sultriness and heat, Id much rather be shambling around in my winter coat and feeling alive with the weather rather than feeling listless and bordering on a bad mood with the heat - I cant be arsed with it.

Bottom line is I suppose roll on the short days and long nights. I will be happier when the summer ends and the promise of cosy days come knocking on my door once more. Not a popular view I know, most people are in better humour with the grace of the sun and have a happier disposition. But not this miserable bitch you see before you.


*As Yosemite Sam would say 'great hornitoes ! blogger is not letting me upload any photos at the moment- useless fuckers, (heat anxiety already kicking in here) so be sure to call back and see some 'interesting' photos* ** managed to let me do it now as you can see**

Sorry you lost your blog. What i do is highlight and copy the entire thing before i publish. That way, if it's lost, i can just paste what i had back into the box.

I prefer winter as well. You're not alone.

Im glad Im not the only 'mad' one out there. Its like a social stigma to like the winter isnt it?

The garden sounds great. I love fall and early winter. I hate negative degree weather and biting wind chills. I hate weather over 85 degrees and high humidity. If I found a climate that was sunny and 45-85 highs and lows, I'd move almost immediate. But I do love sun and sand vacations. mmmmmmm. The beach and lakes make me happy.

I used to be of the same mind - winter's best - but as I've aged, the heat is preferable and I cannot bear the cold or the dark. But Spring and Autumn are my faves - May is perfect.

And I just adore lilac - every time I spot a bush I have a good old sniff.

I dont know what it is about the weather from them months but I feel so positively alive when the weather is at its most ferocious - mind you I havent a clue of the real power of the elements living in Dublin where as over in your neck of the woods you guys know what its all about and Im sure its no romance with hurricanes and twisters..

You would love my mothers garden 3 different types of Lilac, white , pink and purple and californian lilac, she has stock, orange blossom, jasmine and magnolia and a breed of rhododendron called Ella Fitzgerald, chinese & ladybird poppies, foxgloves, lavender-tis a very fragrant garden and 90% of the 'smellies' where bought by me as I have no garden being a city dweller.

I've got to stay out of the sun it's brutal here and feels like a thousand needles on my bare skin.

Yeah blogger likes to take a dump every once in a while. I try to copy and paste when I think about it so I don't lose everything I've written.

that sounds so painful - I guess I should count my blessings, as for blogger I will be doing exactly that. Somehow you can never quite capture the magic of the original when that happens.. (Im vain enough to think that If Im laughing my ass off writing someone else will when reading it)

Didn't Yosemite Sam say "horny toads"? Horny toes sounds like what I keep in my shoes...

Judith said...

You are without doubt spot on, How on earth did I misconstrue that?? *Oh the shame*!!!

General Catz said...

Both times i went to Dublin was in winter and i found it envigorating. I can't imagine ever going there in summer. I love the wind and the rain and yet you see a flower box in full bloom in the oddest of places.

The one thing I missed about living in ireland where they skies, they are quite unique in their cloud formations , sunsets and sun rises BTW why dont you try for IT jobs here??

General Catz said...

Cos getting a job over there is like marrying a member of the royal family: nearly impossible.

Unless i got on with an international company, chances are bleak.

Judith said...

You should just have a look catz from what I understand its a pretty healthy market jobwise

Crankster said...

Gotta say that I'm somewhere in between. Autumn is my favorite season, but I love hot days and chilly nights, like you get at the seashore in the summer.
