The light nights are now here in the UK and midweek summer trips down country lanes and footpaths are a particular favourite of mine. Paths which were waterlogged or impassable in recent weeks suddently become a playground to explore (in shorts!).
One thing that does trouble me in the first few weeks is nettle stings.
For some reason, my skin seems to get used to it and I suffer no more after about the end of April.
Until then though, it’s out with the old white vinger bottle to wash away the stings…
