It’s finally happened…the UK has actually gotten some decent weather! The last two weeks has seen a pretty solid run of warm temperatures and sunshine, with millions of Brits across the country taking advantage and sunning themselves or indulging in activities reliant on good weather.
However, I am pretty convinced that it’s these few weeks at the end of June/beginning of July that always end up getting the nicest weather; certainly for the last 2 years I have had the misfortune of booking a holiday at this time, and have ended up missing the glorious weather, and a couple of years before that I also did the same thing and ended up sweltering in a plane sat on the tarmac as we were delayed by an hour.
With me working extra hours I have not been able to make as much of the good weather as I’d like to have done, and in fact I was supposed to have had 6 days holiday this week and instead ended up working 8 days out of the last 9! But thankfully I have managed to squeeze in a BBQ and arranged to have this week off instead. That’s right…I haven’t got to go back to work until next Saturday! Pretty damn pleased seeing as though I was starting to get really down about my lack of holiday this year.
With the good weather supposed to continue, I will still strive to come inside and make a few more posts on here…I have a few car-y ones in mind and with more money in my bank account it seems that a new purchase is getting steadily closer (or is it, I will explain in a later post). I also have my brother’s graduation to attend; drinks at the Waldorf Hotel and a meal at the famous Oxo Tower restaurant await!
Ciao for now 🙂
