bank holiday comes six times a year/day of rejoicing at which everyone cheers


I have been sitting in the garden all day reading Claire Tomalin's exemplary biography of Jane Austen and drinking apple juice, while Patsington works on his thesis in the kitchen with the back doors open so he can have fresh air and we both can listen to John Coltrane on the kitchen stereo. Ooooh, I absolutely love summer! Even though I know we'll probably be back in early Spring tomorrow.
