This song (Summer by Josh Pyke) is the theme behind a pay-tv channel summer promo at the moment.
And Billy loves it. I know he likes it because it's repeated endlessly on TV, and so he's memorised it quickly. But he loves the meaning too.
He sat down today, after singing along to this song, and said, 'I love the summer, Mummy... I really love the summer.'
For the uninitiated, that means no school, no timetable, to pressure, lots of trampoline and dog walking.
If only we could hold this time in our hand for a bit longer.
Or make the world a little easier to handle.
