    An inauspicious start to the day here. It's overcast, none too warm and there's a hint of drizzle in the air.

    A proper March day today. Gloomy, chillyish and a hint of rain in the air. Forecast for the next few days is not great!

    I have felt that the weather has ben crap for weeks, and wondered if it was just me.

    It must be about 10 to 12 degrees, but feels very cold and unpleasant, saps the life out of me.

    Exact opposite here now, with bright sunshine and blue skies, although it took until 1pm for that to happen, after pissing down all morning. Currently 12°C, and just back from my daily power-walk...

    Now to jump into the shower and rise off all the slimy man-sweat! Then shlip on my frock, as we're going to the cinema tonight to see 'Get Out'.
