Hot days of Summer

Orange is the new Black 002

So the first hot day of summer is here and the TV is demanding that we get out and enjoy whilst we can but I have a little secret to share, I’m not a sun person or rather I don’t like being out in the hot sun.  I enjoy the evenings and mornings when the sun isn’t too high but beyond that I head for the shade.  This of course is hearcy to our opinion formers – we must ‘enjoy the sun’…it is so 1984.

Of course the counter arguement is that we only have so many hot summer days up here in the north and before we know it it will be raining or overcast.  This is so true but that doesn’t mean I have to do as the media is demanding – I like the shade.


So instead I find myself just doodling in my sketchbook but without any real conviction.
