Odd, thought I.
How'd my pyjamas get muddy?
Finally I figured why...(intelligence en't my strong suit!)
With the arrival of the lovely warm weather we have been enjoying the last few weeks, I have been getting up very early to make tea then walking straight outside whilst the kettle boils. I pick beans, do a bit of weeding, water the windowsill pots, inspect what new has come up or flowered overnight, and just generally potter in the yard.
Hence, muddy pyjamas!
I know most people would get dressed before heading outside, but even when we were children we used to be outside in our pyjamas, both really early and really late if it was hot and we couldn't sleep. Not an everyday occurrence here in the windy north west of Ireland, but an enduring summer habit nonetheless.
So I guess that muddy pyjamas are just another sign that summer is finally here.
And its beautiful up here under the mountain.
