Summer Tonic

There is nothing like the British BBQ, cold beers, hot food excited kids chatter, laughter and belly giggles that almost hurt. Everyone shouting louder and louder to be heard above the good natured buzz. Snuggling under extra jumpers as the night brings in a chill. There is a perfectly good couch in a warm living room but all choose to sit and shiver together outside.

All the "do you remember 25p for a witches hats" and "John you know John who lived at......." Sharing stories of childhood rebellion and gentle teasing and reminiscing of way back whens.

Time spent surrounded by the company of friends all comfortable in their own skin and in each others presence is to me like the best tonic this earth has to offer. Food for the soul.
