A few years ago, I spent my summer holiday season playing golf with my friend and colleague and, of course, enjoying the weather.
I was happy to get away from my computer all weekend long and I’d spent most of my time watching movies on my laptop.
But a few years later, the weather is starting to change.
As the season moves into mid-summer, we’re starting to see more frequent snowfall, and we’re seeing less wind.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to stay indoors.
But we’re also starting to feel a little bit more confident in our ability to take our kids on a walk at the end of the day.
