Autumn fun while there is still hot sun

On our way home from work mid-week, the windows wound down…


The distant sound of scratchy, plinky plonky music that has been played to its death…


We recognise that music, it is the music the ice cream van plays to get the attention of the neighbourhood children.


My partner and I look at each other and an unspoken plans is immediately put into fruition. He pulls the car over onto the side of the road, hazards flashing, seat belts unclipping, we make a mad dash down the road in an attempt to locate the ice cream van.

Questions flash through my mind: “Have we missed it, will we still get the goods?”

Panting, we pull up to a stop as the van comes around the corner – victory.

Soft serve and double flake. Bliss
