What Does The Sun Make You Do?



It's sunny, the skies are blue, the clouds are summery laid out, and the people are unusually chirpy.

It's a novelty. It's rare.

That is today's London weather. 
 
The sky view this morning at work

It's still winter. At 8 degrees Celsius (46.4 degrees Fahrenheit), we're not even at the cusp of spring yet, but the moment the sun's warmth hit my face and I squint at the direction of the blinding rays, I knew my Wayfarers will have an outing.

So does my mood.

For us who sometimes emotionally struggle with grey and gloom, seeing the sun alive is perhaps similar to those from  tropical countries experiencing snow for the first time. The accompanying elation makes you do things ironic to the weather.

Aside from being a Friday, I was just generally more enthusiastic this morning and looked up Sports Direct for additional sportswear. I managed to find the items I needed, plus something else I don't need but may in the next few months. Any bag purchase is always justified.

I have no immediate plans to hit the beach, I haven't booked anything, I'm not dying yet to soak up the sun, and I'm not even sure if I can afford to do so this year, but at £7, I couldn't pass up the sale. I read the product details at least thrice to make sure that the raffia beach mat is included. I was sold. This Hot Tuna piece bought me.

Have you ever heard of that advice to never decide on anything when you're happy, angry, or sad? Or maybe when the sun is out?


 Blame it on a single shot of Vitamin D.


What does a sunny weather impulsively make you do?

  1. As I read the word "sun" in the title, I felt the need to lose the scarf around my neck. The "Wayfarer" line brought to mind several ways of unbuttoning my shirt (and pants too!). And the beach bag photo (oh! the beach bag photo!) made me want to take it all off and dive into the grey waters of the nearest Haarlem canal. Good thing that I'm not impulsive. I think.

  2. Hahahahahaha...please tell your husband in your last will not to blame me if the freezing water of Haarlem canals cause your hypothermia.

    Thank you for dropping by :)

  3. Well I've not been feeling well physically or emotionally this week so I haven't really been out, but the sun shone through my window this morning and it gave me a spring in my step. I wore some spring clothes and shoes and froze my butt off (got a little too excited by the sunshine) and did a little shopping. I also bought some new CD's and blasted them in my car on the way home. That's all I've done so far so we shall see what the weekend brings! xx

    1. Hope you're feeling better Colleen...the sunshine makes us get up from bed, sometimes even just to open the curtains. Look it even made you buy some new music! Sun + music...great combination to lift the mood. Hope next week will be kinder to you xxx

  4. As the weather is changing, it has given a great deal of fluctuation in the fields of marketing. People love to shop but the sales has been dropped by 10% this month due to sickness of the customers and sales people. By the way, thank you Chinwags for writing this interesting blog post. I enjoyed reading it.

  5. Any bag purchase is always justified -> I couldn't agree more ;)
    When the sun comes out, I just want to wear light clothes and go outside. Waiting for spring!

  6. May your skies always be sunny…and take that weather with you wherever you go my friend. Here in sunny SoCal the people are generally a happy bunch. Having lived in many other places, I must say I think the perpetually gorgeous weather ( hating me now ) gives reason to be happy. Such is the case, we need to control our bag urges here. xx

    1. Aaah...thanks Kelly. Reminds me of that 'Weather With You' song by Crowded House. I agree with you, constant sunshine makes people happy, thus the sunny disposition. Just one bag, Kelly, and it was only £7. And looks like it will be put to good use very soon. Haha. Thanks for visiting xxx

  7. I've never head of that advice actually. But now that I did... It kind of makes sense, but on the other hand, who came up with that dreary advice anyway??:D We've had some sunny spells too and I'm LOVING them. They didn't make me go shopping (yet) but every time I see the sun, I grab my dog and run outside. I guess I'm a sunflower.:)

    I hope you're off to an amazing week, dear!

    1. Hahaha...it's just based on a principle that we tend to make hasty (stupid) decisions when influenced by extreme emotions. There's some Psychological basis for that, as far as I know. But don't make me look for the proof. Haha. It's sunny again today! :)

  8. Blue skies and sunshine definitely put me in a good mood even if, like today, it's still cold. I think spring has arrived here! Such a pleasant change from the constant rain. What a lovely bright beach bag too. This weather is making me think about some new outfits. Maybe a little shopping trip .....
