10 Things I Love about SUMMER!

Anonymous
Not applicable

Absolutely nothing, it's just as tiresome as the other three seasons, if not more so. 

 

So not 10 things I love...  it's now 10 things I absolutely detest about it.

 

1. Flies, Wasps & other stupid things that come in to your airspace, to annoy or just for a pointless chomp on you. Irritating as *bleep*!

 

2. Then there are those people who are really scared of flies, wasps & other stupid things who start flapping & it making worse for the rest of us. Also irritating as *bleep*!

 

3. Half naked people. Yeah it gets a little hotter this time of year, but do i really need to see your cellulite? Whether it's women bursting out of hot pants or men with it all hanging out, ugh give it a rest you irritating *bleep* we don't need it!

 

4. Ice Cream Van. It used to be a joy to see that senile old guy driving at 10 mph round the estate touting for business. These days he does a drive by at 40mph (if you're lucky) & unless you stand directly in his path he's off again. I'm sure he just drives round our way just to *bleep* me off.. yeah it works.. he's irritating as *bleep* too.

 

5. The School holidays. Ugh, don't get me started. As if it isn't bad enough that the little *bleep* walk past mine making noise at stupid o'clock in the morning, now I have to put up with it all *bleep*ing day. If the little *bleep* aren't dropping litter & shouting all the time, they're riding motorbikes up & down the street, over the gardens & on the wasteground behind us. And it's not like they haven't had a year off already. Irritating as *bleep*.

 

Do you know what... My blood is boiling typing this *bleep*.. If I sit here & think any more i'm going to explode. So i'll let you decide the rest.

 

I didn't realise how much I hate about summer till @TheresaV made me think of it, so thanks for that.

Not tried Nuii yet. I've been told not to buy anything for the freezer because it needs er, defrosting first. Like that's going to stop me 🙂

Not to worry @sheepdog Nuii won't be in there long 🤣
I like the 6 in a box 3 different flavours each one is smaller than the full size but you can have 2 for a treat 😉

tbf i've never heard of Nuii, but @TallTrees 

 

AND flip flops housing sweaty feet.

 

I'm not sure which is worse seeing socks & sandals/flip flops or seeing peoples feet.. feet are ugly full stop, mine, yours.. everyones!

Now that's what I call Summer Love, @Anonymous 🤦‍♂️🤣

Midges. They get *everywhere*! And this year, horseflies - experienced them in the summer in Germany and Switzerland, but not so much here... Until this year! Peppermint oil dabbed on arms or neck seems to dissuade the bloodthirsty b*gg*rs, but...

Peppermint oil against horseflies @TallTrees - not sure what would keep midges out of getting stuck in on your scalp...

Great thread @Anonymous! I'd like to add Horse Flies to the list of stupid flying things. They have the worst bites rage

I would actually like to add public transport to that list. Being on a bus in summer (especially wearing a mask) is something I would happily miss out on sweat_smile
