Summer is my absolute favourite time of year. It’s something about how almost everyone is in better spirits, how when I finish work I still have time to enjoy the daylight and how the cool breeze (or air con) flows through and relieves everyone of that feeling of being a little too warm.
A big part of my love for summer is also about where I live. I’m so fortunate to be able to drive five minutes down the road and be at the beach. Living so close means I have the time for a quick swim before work, access to beautiful beach walks and a place to relax (essentially) right on my doorstep. One of my absolute favourite things to do in summer is to choose one of the many beaches in Bayside to eat my Friday night fish and chips and spend time with my friends. There’s something really special about watching the sunset surrounded by good people in a beautiful place, knowing that I can sleep in the following morning and relax in comfort.
I got a Bayside air conditioner service recently, so during summer I make sure its programmed to turn on each Saturday and Sunday morning. This means I can spend some much needed time in bed and contemplate how I am going to spend the fabulous summer day ahead.
My plan for this morning is to take my dog Luna down to Sandringham Dog Beach before it gets too hot, so that her wet coat can keep her cool for the rest of the day. It is so much better than winter when I have to walk her in between rain showers, today we can swim together and be relieved to get wet!
Everything about summer is fantastic, and I can feel my spirit level rising even at the thought of it. I will be booking another air conditioner service soon though, the last thing I want is to be too hot to sleep in!
