It's the first day of summer here in Australia and the weather is actually starting to warm up - Yay! I have vivid memories of pestering Mum and Dad to let us walk to the local Deli (remember those ?! Sadly a thing of the past, we mostly have local service stations to walk to now) to buy a lemonade icy pole on the hottest of summer days. They were usually consumed whilst lounging in our blow up paddling pool (oh how we longed for a real pool!).
