After work enjoying a drink outside, a stroll in the park, an al fresco dinner or simply reading a book in the garden. Nothing beats a UK summer when you get home and don’t feel as though it’s midnight – they’re the best!
It doesn’t seem to matter that you are no longer at school and there is no such thing as an actual ‘summer holiday’, this time of year lends itself to booking time off. Whether it’s a staycation at the good old British seaside or heading overseas, summer holidays still get us excited every time. After all, no one works between May and September right?
No one understands the magic of a beer garden quite like the British. They are a staple part of our summer; they represent long lunches and longer afternoons. Their beauty is quite something to behold. I don’t really know where they go in the winter, but thank goodness they are there when we need them with an endless supply of cider, Kettle Chips and peanuts.
This is a bit like our need to wear shorts when the sun shows any vague sign of appearing – even if they often appear with ankle socks. In the UK we are very good at making the most of a good thing like warm weather, because we don’t have an unlimited supply of it, so it is perfectly reasonable that when we have a sunny spell we can opt for an ice cream lunch every day of the week… we all do this right?
Suddenly everyone’s a sports expert. You are using terminology that you have never used, EVER in your life and, suitably inspired, you subsequently suggest that you and your friends spend the weekend doing other sporty things like playing Rounders in the park. This wouldn’t happen at any other time of the year, and if we’re honest, we’re mostly in it for the strawberries and cream, but we’re very excited about it nonetheless!
