When the sun comes out I want to jump like that bronze deer. When the rain sets in for weeks on end throw me the duvet!


When I saw this week's challenge title 'seasons' I sighed. I know so many people who embrace all the seasons, couldn't dream of living anywhere that doesn't offer the full range of snow, rain, wind and sun through the year- not me!!!! I hate rain, I hate grey, and I hate wind. I love sun on my face and peeling off the winter layers of clothing. It was a cruel trick of fate being born in Scotland as far as the weather is concerned but a happy turn of life's opportunities to get away from a northern hemisphere winter as often as I do. And so it was that last month I escaped the relentless rain of guernsey by heading south to South Africa. My season has got to be summer,summer, summer!!

When the rain forgets to stop and the skies are leaden I'm the angry hippo!

In response to Seasons | The Daily Post

Have a great day whether or not you are enjoying the season.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
