As others have noted, summer = road works season.
The road works that I was having to climb over last week are still there, despite the fact that they were supposed to finish on Friday. Now, however, they have decided to make life easier for me.
I now have a little bridge to cross!
The British are famous for lots of things - Empire building, claiming victory in wars that were really won by others, bad food, queueing. (Please add more in the comments section!) Probably the thing we are most famous for is complaining about the weather.
Too hot, too cold, too windy, too wet, too dry, too sunny...
People must really hate British tourists.
We go to Florida and say "It's a bit hot for me."
We go to Singapore in Monsoon season and say "The rain was terrible!" (No shit, Sherlock!)
We go to Lappland to see Santa Claus and complain about the cold!
Yesterday seemed to be a day that no one could complain about.
You didn't really notice the temperature (not hot, not cold), there was a bit of a breeze, it was not raining but there was a hint of something in the air (unless it was just the birds peeing on me), the clouds prevented the sun being too bright but they weren't so thick that the day felt totally dreary.
A day of non-weather, in fact.
Surely, no one could complain.
By 9.30 I had heard the first complaint of the day...
Shame that complaining about the weather is not an Olympic Sport! No one else would get a look in, we would bet Gold, Silver and Bronze!
Hope you are enjoying the weather where you are!
PS Happy 4th of July to my American friends. No hard feelings! :-)
