I actually can't believe that we've slithered into July without a wink.
I'm pretty convinced that the older you get, the quicker time slides by.
Scientists have theories, of course, and one of them is that when you experience something for the very first time, more details, more information gets stored in your memory. Think about your first kiss.
Neuroscientists say that since the touch of the lips, the excitement, the taste, the smell, everything about this moment is novel, you aren't embroidering a bank of previous experiences, you are starting fresh.
Have you noticed, he says, that when you recall your first kisses, early birthdays, your earliest summer vacations, they seem to be in slow motion?
I know when I look back on a childhood summer, it seems to have lasted yonks. That's because when it's the "first", there are so many things to remember. The list of encoded memories are so dense, reading them back gives you a feeling that they must have taken forever.
But that's an sneaky illusion.
The more memory you have of something, you think, 'Shite, that really took a long time!'
Well, we are more than half way through 2014 already and its seems to have whizzed by in a fleeting flash.
I don't want to wish my life away, but I can't wait until the summer returns. The sunshine and warm weather is calling me.
In the meantime enjoy the rest of the winter - I know I won't.
I'm a grumpy bitch until at least mid September, when I eventually thaw out and my nipples don't poke holes in my t-shirts.
