Lets Talk Blog Challenge - Kerrie's Summer Essentials

It's already Week 2 of the #letstalkblogchallenge?! That week flew!  (For Details go here

To me no summer is complete with out the following!

Oh hai hayfever, yes it's that time of year for us sufferers! Citronella candles and wasp killer are essential for me to go into battle with my most feared critters :S  And please don't forget the sunscreen!

 Hay making and Turf cutting season is upon us :)

Wimbledon is one of my fav summer events! Along with The Tour de France for the views of a beautiful country.  Mmmm the smell of fresh cut grass (maybe from a candle for those allergic!) 99's and Strawberries are my foods of choice in summer.  Yum.

These are my essential Summer songs, I just chose what came into my head without thinking it over too much so here you go!  Enjoy :)

First up ELO - Mr. Blue Sky.  
You can't help but feel summery when you hear this :)

Next DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Summertime.  
A contender for the best Summer song ever?

Phosphorescent - Los Angeles
I saw Phosphorescent live in the Summer time so this will always remind me of awesome times :)

I think this an appropriate time for some 
Freak Power - Turn on, Tune In, Cop Out.

Presidents of the USA - Peaches  
Needs no explanation!

The Pigeon Detectives - I'm Not Sorry
Maybe not the mostest amazing song in the world but this will always remind me of our first trip to Oxegen :) Remember ASH?! :D

The Streets - Weak Become Heroes 
This happen to pop up on the Ipod recently and I instantly thought; summer playlist!

Roots Manuva - Witness The Fitness 
Summer = School sports day! If you only watch one video from this list let it be this! 

I'm going to end it here.  I've had so much fun doing this it's taken me hours! and there are sooooooo many more I could include I'll add a link if you'd like to here some more. 
Bye for now!
