For the past couple of weeks, the UK has been experiencing unusually warm and sun-filled days. Last Sunday we put our clocks forward an hour, to British Summer Time – another winter over, but I felt weary.
‘Grab your hat and sun cream,’ The Artist said, ‘I’ll take you on a picnic.’
Turning my computer off, I shut the door on pressing chores and went out into the light.
He drove us to the West Wight – ten minutes from our house.
We wandered through an ancient wood:
We strolled along the shore:
We counted the millennia, in the strata of a cliff:
We ate pork pies and sandwiches, sitting on the sand.
Drank lashings of ginger beer.
Dodged frothy wavelets, for a while.
Then we came home, refreshed. 🙂
