Summer is here!
Today is the first day of the summer school term - the kids went off in their summer uniforms, the sun is shining, the sky is blue, there is not a cloud in the sky! The result of this wonderful day is that I have declared Unilateral Summer. This means that I am in shorts and shirts from now on regardless of what happens to the weather. I took to doing this after a couple of really nasty summers where spring seemed to skip straight to autumn without summer getting a look in, and as I had been waiting for the nice weather to arrive before I get out the shorts I missed it! So, have a great summer everyone, even if you are still waiting for your snow to go away for good!
Love and Marriage
OK, a switch of subject. Broken relationships are everywhere. The news seems to regularly give increasing divorce rates. Films and TV shows make them a stock item, making it seem that failure of a relationship is inevitable.
My favourite line for this comes from the film Clue:
"Life after death is about as probable as sex after marriage".
So there are times when my wife and I look at each other and wonder where we are going wrong! Why aren't we arguing, throwing things at each other, having affairs, splitting up?
From the Harry Enfield show:
"You're holding me back! I should be on my 4th husband by now, and I haven't even got a brown baby!"
But, do you know something? I don't know if I just got lucky, but reading the blogs that I do has made me realise that we are NOT alone. There are others out there that also have wonderful, loving relationships! So here's to us all!
Give the one you love a big hug tonight, and prove that there is life after death :-)
