Two weeks ago anyone in England could have been forgiven for thinking that they were in fact living in the Mediterranean. The weather was incredible - well into the 20s for days on end. With amazing good luck, this mini heatwave coincided with my half-term holiday from school, and even more fortunately I had an extra day off work the following week for report writing (which I smugly finished during the 2 rainy days that preceded the sunshine) so I was well-placed to enjoy it. I spent an entire week wearing shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops.
And I didn't want to miss a second of that beautiful sunshine...
Even ironing can be fun when the sun is out!
Sadly since then we have had a week of greyness and lots of rain. Good for the burgeoning vegetables in the garden I suppose (see my newly potted-on tomatoes on the table in the photo above) but rather less good for one's spirits.
Still, it seems to be warming up again now, and the rain appears to be easing. So perhaps that glorious Summer might happen after all?
