I am a summer person, there is nothing I love better than long, hot sunny days.
Days that start early with buttery yellow light and birdsong.
We are heading into “Winter”, I put inverted commas because according to the rest of the country us Durbanites have no idea of what a real Winter feels like. Ok, so we don’t really get cold here and can still tan in mid winter, but, we still have those dark mornings and early evenings, horrid short days.
And, to really add to the misery this week, it is raining. If you know anyone who lives in Durban, we only leave home for emergencies when it is raining, the roads are quiet, the stores are blissfully empty.
So here I sit, after 4 days of consistent cold rain on day number 5 and it is still dark and cold and wet and I am dreaming of sunshine, long days, golden light, sticky skin and pool paddling.
