I dislike summer.
There, I said it, I really don’t like it.
1. It’s too hot
I hate being hot. I’m a warm person anyway and often won’t be wearing a coat when everyone else is so Summer just makes me all bothered and sweaty. I don’t like feeling hot, I don’t like not being able to cool down and in case you didn’t get the message, I hate being fucking hot.
My garden is CRAWLING with them. And I have tried everything to get rid of them. Everything!!! They are driving me crazy. Please don’t suggest talc. When I say I’ve tried it all, I’ve tried it all. Apart from the stuff that might kill my dogs/child but you know, I’d rather have the ants then risk their health.
3. Hay fever.
I have that kind of Hay fever that looks like you’ve been hit in the face with a baseball bat and anti histimines don’t help. It drains all my energy and makes me feel like utter crap.
4. Big kids are off school
I don’t like big kids, maybe when E is big kid, I will but right now, no. When they aren’t at school they are often racing dangerously around the quaint little places I like to visit or pushing my daughter out the way.
5. Long nights, light mornings and birds!!
I want to wake up and it be dark and I want to be all snuggly at night. I don’t want it to be an endless day where I can’t sleep properly. And as we live in the countryside, I don’t want the dawn chorus anymore. I loved it in Spring but I really need to sleep now.
6. Sun cream.
I have ginger skin which means even thinking about the sun makes me burn. So I have to lather myself in thick white cream which blocks my pores just so I don’t burn to a crisp. Also, E HATES suncream so that’s a fun fight. Not to mention the fact she looks feral and dirty the minute she has it on.
In case you haven’t realised by now, I don’t like summer. I’m not nor have I ever been a summer person. I like all the other seasons. Spring and Autumn rank top first with winter a close second. Summer is not for me. Never has been and I doubt it ever will be.
Do you dislike summer too? What’s your fave season? Did you love Autumn before loving Autumn became cool?
