Hazy Lazy Hot Summer’s Evening

When you’ve had a long hard day’s work but nothing to show for it except the knowledge that you’ve been to meeting after meeting without achieving anything tangible. When you have to take a half hour detour on the way home to avoid road closures, and you’re stuck in one set of temporary traffic light after another.

You get home tired and hungry but what you really need is something to release the tension that has built up to simmering point throughout the long day.

There’s no lake for miles – nowhere to take a dip, splash around and let the cares of the day wash away. So take a moment to enjoy this image instead. Soon you’ll be able to feel the humid air against your skin and the cool tingle as you take the plunge and hit the water feet first.
