Being a teacher, this one is easy to answer! My favourite thing about summer is of course the summer holidays and the lovely 6 weeks I then have off from work! To go with it of course, I also love long summer evenings, eating dinner in the garden and family days out to the seaside. Bliss.

Congratulations on your 100th post and thank you for the chance to enter.

Congratulations on reaching 100 posts ~ Well Done! The thing I like best about Summer is getting to spend 7 weeks with my children doing lots of fun things:O)

Taz said...

Congrats on your award and reaching your 100 posts :)

My favourite thing about Summer is the all the weeks the smalls get off school. Because we don't have to rush anywhere, we can plan things for any day of the week because there is no school, no after school clubs etc etc. And I'm not even counting the days for them to go back by the end of the holidays. Yes all the other mums at school do think I am mad! :D

Jemm said...

I love having the kids home for the summer the best. I miss them when they are at school. I also love the summer food and drinks, fresh veggies, lemonade, sangria :)

Mary Poppins said...

Well done on your 100th post :)

Would love to enter you giveaway and thanks for giving me the opportunity.

My favourite thing about Summer would be romantic strolls through country lanes on special balmy evenings.

Wishful thinking, think I read too much Mills and Boon ;)
