Saturday was pleasantly warm. Sunday was getting to slow-down-a-bit hot. Today, sitting at the computer, I found myself suffering a little from the heat. So, apparently, did the computer, which failed to shut down!
OK, it’s not really hot, but mid-20s counts as hot here. In our maritime climate of perpetually clement temperatures, 30° is as exceptional in summer as 0° in winter. It’s the season when you don’t want to be where I am, in a top-floor flat with low ceilings and south-facing windows.
In general terms I like this time of year. Good hours of daylight, an abundance of the most delicious fruit&veg are in season, and even too early for midges or wasps. But I won’t be sorry if the temperature drops a bit, especially when I’m trying to work.
