Summer in the UK can be...variable. But on a day like today, it's pretty damn perfect. Blue skies. Sun. 70-something degrees. All the kids out playing (including mine, who has made a speedy recovery). Laundry drying on the line. The smell of freshly-mowed grass. Happy sigh. I've loved all of my travels this summer, but on a day like today, there's no place like home!
