Education

Sorry, can't remember if I've mentioned this article writing competition already. There are cash prizes, in different age groups, for thoughts on education.

In case I have already told you about that one, I'm going to distract you by talking about the weather.*  Please think back to your schooldays** and what the weather was like back then ... It's said that we usually remember that time as sunny. Is that true for you?

*Don't know if that'll work on my non British followers, but it's worth a try.

** School - education - see what I did there?

  1. An interesting competition. Thanks for sharing the link, Patsy... I remember the long walk to school wasn't great when it was raining, and sometimes in winter, but then we looked forward to having a hot summer. I suppose my strongest memory of the weather was playing in the garden as a child on fine days, and later as a teenager sitting in the sunshine with a book...

    1. I too remember some cold walks to school, Sharon. I recall having to pull my little brother up the steep hill when it was icy as I was afraid he'd slide all the way back home.

  2. I remember having to sit around in wet clothes all day when it was raining... I remember sunnier times because I started to get hayfever when I was in my mid-teens!

    1. Oh dear, Hayley - I haven't brought back the greatest memories, have I?

  3. The weather was great growing up, whether three feet of snow or a dry sunny day.

    1. You obviously made the most of it however the day turned out, Oscar.

  4. I remember the blistering, muggy heat of Missouri in the summer. The cold in the winter. The dust storms of West Texas. Sun burns, summer at the lake.

    1. We get warm muggy weather here too, Mac - blistering heat isn't common though.

  5. I think one remembers the extremes - making igloos and snowmen in the winter, hot summer days in the garden and sitting with the back door open watching torrential rain and feeling safe and secure. Happy days.

    1. You're right, Maggie it is the extremes I remember. There aren't any normal days in my memory. Actually there probably weren't many in reality, but I'm sure some must have been ordinary as far as the weather was concerned.

    1. Yes, I saw her photo and it is similar. I didn't take mine in Dorset!

  7. Now that you mention it, I don't really remember lots of cloudy childhood days (except when it came to PE that involved swimming.)

    1. Never seemed to be warm on swimming days, did it, Misha?
