I have been out delivering newspapers today (yes, yes, I know)- and the car thermometer kept saying 12.5- 13 degrees.

I am, however, burned raw.

Thanks, everyone. We're not doing serious enough walking to warrant bringing our hiking boots, and I'm still deciding about the sandals.

David! Behave!

Elendi, take your sandals. I was in London today and ended up BUYING some, my feet were so sore in ordinary shoes.

OK, Sheila, you've convinced me! They'll fit in Mr. Pickle's Godzilla-sized suitcase, too.

David, I'm not sure I want to know...

Sigh.
Why is it that the average British female looks so gorgeous in the Summer and the average British male looks such a mess?

The dreaded shorts have started to appear.
Mrs O. says that white, hairy, male British
legs look like pipe-cleaners.
I must say that I have to agree with her.

On Saturday I wore sandals. Today I'm wearing 2 jumpers and sheepskin boots

I've been here for a week now, and it hasn't rained once. And from now on I'm going to call it Sunny Scotland. Although it's still been chilly enough for me to have a light jacket or sweater, unless we are doing lots of walking......I've seen no indication it rains in Britain

It has been beautifully sunny and warm here all week, so I had decided to get the barbecue out today.
It has turned fairly chilly and windy and rain is forecast

Hi Sheila - if it's any consolation, I am too. Is it not quite cold and windy, albeit sunny, there ?

The clouds have rolled in and it's much breezier. I rushed to get the last load of laundry washed and out on the line before the rains start to come.
I could kick myself. One of our neighbors has a beautiful lilac tree, with the blooming lilacs a lush purple color, much darker than usual. Early last week, I had planned to take a photo of them against the deep blue of the sunny, totally cloudless skies. I kept forgetting to bring the camera down from the top floor of our cottage and now it's too late...the blooms are fading and the skies have turned. Dang!

No. There's a bit of a chill in the air, but it's been lovely till about 20 minutes ago. It's getting a wee bit overcast now, but it did that yesterday

We had a few showers today but the big change was the return of the blustery winds.
My husband flew to Brussels from Heathrow this afternoon and said it was a very turbulent, almost white-knuckle takeoff and landing. And he is usually a nonchalant air traveler.
