but April, May, June and July were sunny and warm. Down here, at least.
maybe just a london thing
london's great huh
I think we had a great summer and it's not completely over yet.
Bit cold mind
which we always forget about when complaining about the summer. July was hideous, August better. I think we need to remember that with a gulf stream that moves unpredictably year on year, you need to take and enjoy your sunny days regardless of whether they fall within the range of months you expect for 'summer'.
It does eem clear that this year was nothing like last summer's heatwave though. I was never out of my bikini last year, whereas this year it's been on only a handful of times.
We got it out three times.
but there were some really decent weeks of sun going back several months. I was on the beach at Easter time, got sunburn and everything. There has of course also been pissing rain, but it hasn't been cold. I don't think I have fully closed the windows in my house since about May.
Spring has ousted it and run through into Autumn. Which is fine by me. Summer is a prick.
*Still managed to get mild sunburn, a solid six weeks of justified shorts wearing, and there were a couple of occasions when someone bought choc-ices/cornettos/lollies in to work after lunch time.
bowling in to claim that shorts wearing is never justified*
that went away as soon as i finished work.
when i went to london at the end of june it was fucking unbearable hot.
