Dear August: Organised Chaos
We're only six days in, and already you are proving to be an unexpected month. Every day has so far been busy and I'm finding myself doing things that a month ago I wouldn't have expected to be doing. It's a little unnerving at times, but it's nice to be busy - even if you have brought a little sadness with you...
Everything that has happened in less than a week, makes me ponder what else you are going to throw at me August. But of all the months, I'm glad that it's you that has challenged me because you always were the adventure lover!
The weather you have brought has - so far - been a little unpredictable, but I don't know why I'm surprised, because we live in England, and that is just how things are. But the past six August's have been such let-downs, so it is definitely nice to be seeing lots more sunshine blended in with the rain showers, rather than the one big rain shower that we appear to have become accustomed to.
As Charlie says in Katherine Rundell's novel; Rooftoppers:
"I am an Englishman. I always have an umbrella. I would no more go out without my umbrella that I would leave the house without my small intestine."
Well, for me, I'm more likely to go out with my fold-up waterproof coat, but Charlie certainly said it right :)
Love you always August, and remember that a good mix of sunshine and rain is good for a variety of things - such as keeping the gardens green, and the air cool so that we don't all suffocate in the heat - phew!
