words Eve Walker

In the words of Danny and Sandy, ah those summer nights… lounging around in the sun all day, deciding to have “just one more drink” at the pub and inevitably staying out until the early hours of the morning. Dreamy. It’s what we spend the whole year pining for.

But wait, now the sun’s gone down, and you’re shivering so much that your body could drill a hole in the ground. It’s time to make the dreaded decision: do you go home to get an extra layer and risk being too close to your bed to make it back out, or do you try to firm the cold knowing you’ll most likely complain about it every 20 minutes?
