As we are nearly at the end of the school holidays here, we thought it was about time we made a mad dash over to the west of Scotland and luckily the weather was lovely, as it still is. It is about 60 F I suppose which is fine for me because I can’t stand the heat and I feel so sorry for people sweating in 80 or 90 F. I don’t know how you manage to do anything at all.
But the best thing is the sun has been shining now because we’ve had so much rain this summer, almost as bad as last year and the year before. One woman said to me that she rates summers by how many BBQs she’s had – 1 last year, and 2 this year apparently.
I’ve got a feeling that the weather forecasters are always saying that the best of the weather is in the west, which is strange because the west of Scotland is famous for high rainfall. I’m going to start keeping a note of the rainfall patterns, I think it’s changing.
I predict that we’ll have the best weather of the whole summer in the next few weeks, because that’s what usually happens when the kids go back to school.
Ah well, I suppose it means that I’ll be able to get some of the jobs done around the house and garden that we haven’t been able to do because of the weather.
I’m not going up on the roof though, I think I’ll get a professional in for that one!
