Long summer holidays are of course something that I loved as a child.
These holiday "breaks" changed when I was a student, strawberry-picking, factory-work, community art projects, and lots of happy times helping Mum in the garden.
The hot summer sunshine didn’t seem to shine endlessly in through the window any more, but it has done again this year even though I have had no holiday. There have been days when I have felt that same old summer feeling, for the first time in a long, long time.
I am self-employed, so I don’t have summer breaks
I usually work more in the summer than in any other months of the year, as this is the time that many of my clients are searching for a conductor.
I am glad about this, as I didn’t feel so alone in my work, and enjoyed the activity on my blog.
I must admit that I am looking forward to getting an Autumn break, perhaps. I shall not guarantee the same pace of posting on the blog if that happens! I need a holiday and I hope that I will have time to take one, so that later this year I can catch the St Martin’s Summer, the Indian Summer or, best of all the names for this, the Altweibersommer.
