Well it’s safe to say, in Ireland this year, we’ve had NO summer.
Now I know we like to say that every year but this time it’s true. I can’t remember a non-season like this – ever. It does, however have it’s perks…
For people such as myself who come to life when the winds are howling, blowing leaves about like confetti and carrying with them THAT smell, the smell of Autumn, this year we can embrace it with no guilt, no shame and no sorrow for what we leave behind…and no-one can say a word!
I was born in the Autumn and I’m pretty sure that has coloured my perception of it because even though it meant going back to school which was the worst thing imaginable, right slap bang in the middle of it was my birthday. Not only that but my favourite day of the entire year lay in wait as Autumn turned the world orange, red and gold. That day is of course, Hallowe’en.
