Summer not autumn

You lifestyle bloggers all decided to hit me all at once yesterday, didn't you? I should have seen it coming but I've been keeping the blinkers firmly in place to enjoy every last ounce of summertime and haven't let my mind wander. The amount of posts on Bloglovin' I saw along the lines of 'hurrah it's autumn... lets get out the chunky knits, sit by the fire and drink spiced coffee'.

Oh, it rather upset me.

As far as I'm concerned it's officially summer until the equinox and it continues as long as the weather holds up. The idea of autumn starting now is too alarming to comprehend; as long time sufferer of SAD there is nothing I dread more than summer vanishing without a trace. I can do without my frozen extremities, wrecked skin, windswept barnet and runny nose for another month or so if you please. Let's not all get swept away in the weird romance that autumn is somehow a fairytale for everyone.

I still have so many sights to share with you (I've been putting off looking through some of the pictures as there are just so many shots that it'll take forever to whittle it down to a handful.) but they will be appearing soon. Would you be interested to see a summer round up? I think it would be a nice idea.

  1. Please do a summer round up! I can't bear the winter and I've hated seeing autumn's approach.

  2. Yes, I hate Autumn's approach and refuse to acknowledge it for a while yet.

  3. Hooray!!! Someone talking some sense!!!! If you read my current post, you will see I am in TOTAL agreement with you!!! I suffer from a form of SAD too and all those things, esp the runny nose. Autumn is NOT romantic, it's slushy, dirty, damp, cold, unpredictable, expensive (heating), and I just look pale and horrid!!! And my three mile walk per day is just horrid in the rain!!

  4. And YES, not just a round up but a long continuous stream of Norfolk summer beauty please!!! X

  5. It's definitely still summer for me - I'm trying to hang onto the summer vibes for as long as possible, the idea of wearing a jumper makes me itch and the dark nights make me feel so down. The summer definitely has a few weeks left in it! x

  6. See I HATE summer because I am always too warm and it sends my bloods funny so I am looking forward to cooler weather!

  7. Hurrah :) definitely not autumn yet, I refuse to accept it. Haven't had my summer holiday yet and certainly not ready to pack away the summer clothes already...

  8. It's definitely autumn, I'm back at work!! I don't mind as long as it's still light in the evenings.

  9. Sept 21st is when I will let go of any hope of some summer sun. I do like early Autumn but Summer has always been my favourite time of year. I was having a tough work day yesterday so I went and sat in the sun for a while. Everything seemed better after that.
    Definite yes to a summer round up!

  10. Yeah, people do seem to have been jumping on the Autumn bandwagon a little soon this year. I saw scarves last week and then on Tuesday we needed sunglasses in the park.
