When did we have good weather in April?  BBC said something like "coldest April in 23 years".  

And the wettest in the past century.

Ours wasn't too bad. And I spent a couple of hours sitting out in the sun this afternoon - in a t'shirt.

We reached the giddy heights of 9C here this afternoon. Sitting out in a teeshirt would have been and invitation to hypothermia.

In the sun this time of year, and out of the wind, 9 is pushing t'shirt weather...

When I were a lass...

No, really, I distinctly remember wearing my school summer clothes at the end of the Spring term i.e. in April, several years. Probably for 1 day, though.

Gah. It is a holiday for most of the population. The sun is shining. It is not a holiday for me. And after today - or even by this evening - the weather forecast is not inspiring.

Piss miserable here. It's a day for a warm pub with a coal fire and a bunch of mates. Food, drink, good craic...

Alas, I too am working - albeit at home on a proposal with a near future deadline.

They're actually quite common in England, just usually very small and short lived.

A friend (in England) and I have decided that Spring has Sprung, Summer has Flown, and we're now into Autumn.

What do you think?

At the moment, I'm inclined to believe that we've been teleported to a water world . . .

A temperature of 6C suggests that we may have passed through Autumn too. It has definitely been a touch damp here for the last few hours, but someone seems to have turned the tap off, if only temporarily.

Moonlighting weathermen? I really do need to pay more attention to the news......
