My Favourite Month

Today, we enter my favourite month of the year. There’s something about May that really makes it a very special time of year for me.

Perhaps it is the notion that spring is in the air, the trees are in bloom and winter has finally faded into the southern hemisphere! May is a month that seems to burst with optimism - summer is just around the corner, the weather is brightening up (although, you wouldn’t believe it, if you saw the grey, raining sky staring at me through the window right now) and life seems as though it might be that touch more entertaining.

May also contains the anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, which also engenders personal feelings of deep pride and renewed love of all things Zionistic. The icing on the cake of course, is that it is a whole thirty one days long - go go May!

Welcome to MY month. Let’s hope this May brings us all more success, happiness and fulfilment.

Go on, get your short trousers on, open the windows of your house and let the sounds and smells of spring fill every corner of your abode. Let’s celebrate the fact that winter has finally disappeared and things can only get better…

…and if you’re reading this in any place south of the Equator, you have my deepest sympathies.

I agree with you about May - we had our first BBQ of the year last night and it was delicious.
