The joys of British summertime!


Jilly Halliday and son on a rollercoasterHi there,

I hope you are managing to enjoy the summer, whatever the weather is like where you are. I just had to share this photo with you, which I think just sums up British summertime at the moment.

My son, Taylor, and I were on a roller coaster at Adventure Island in Southend, and just as it was our turn, the sky literally turned black and the heavens opened.

The rain came down so hard, as we were roaring around on the roller coaster, it was stinging our faces and Taylor decided he had had enough!

When we looked at the ride's photos I just couldn't resist, it did make me laugh and is definitely one for the scrap book!

Don't forget, if you find any good days out this summer to go on with the kids, as usual, please let me know. We have a whole six weeks to keep them occupied, hopefully not all in the rain!

Speak soon,

Jilly x

    Hi Jilly,
    That photo is hilarious!! You look like you’re having a ball though! You are one brave Mum going on a rollercoaster with your son! I remember the lovely photo of the 4 of you at Universal. Bet it was different weather that day on the rides!
    Love Susan x
