Please be aware, I’m about to sing….
And now ………
You Are My Sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away
Lately I find the sun’s been playing hide and seek. On Monday, it was out in all its bright and shiny glory and then yesterday – - it was as though someone told it to run away forever!! Mr. Sun, I’m ready for you to come out and play …
When it’s cold, dark and cloudy, add a little sunshine to your day with a piping hot bowl of sunshine soup.
A bowl of sunshine is bound to brighten your day.
It’s thick and velvety, bursting with brightness teasing you like a warm blanket in the middle of the arctic
