It’s the time of year where I go a little crazy. It’s mid August (well almost) and as far as I’m concerned winter is on the way out – no matter what the temperature still is.

So what makes me act crazy this time of year and what kind of crazy things do I do? Something happens to me every year in mid-August – I start wearing t-shirts, singlet tops, shorts and flip-flops regardless of the temperature. Usually though after a little while I’m forced to don the track pants and jumper for part of the day!

Why? Well for one my birthday falls on September the 1st which is the first day of Spring and it me it heralds the official end of winter and the the start of the warm weather! Mid-August is for me the promise of bright sunny days, lazy afternoons, daylight savings, activity and just pure joy! I just get so excited and I start jumping the gun clothing wise and start listening to all my summer music.

I’m like a giddy teenager dancing crazy around the house in my shorts and t-shirt while my husband looks at me very strangely. But this is my time of the year and I’m just so excited!!!

I love mid-August more than Christmas! What time of the year do you guys love? I’d love to know!
