    Default Crap weather for July

    Raining lots today, and it does not look very warm outside!

    Lol - now it's your turn!

    Complete opposite here... Warm, sunny summer's day, with blue skies throughout, and a current temperature of 24°C

    It wasn't a great day here today, so a good excuse to stay in and listen to tunes all day.

    Our warmest and sunniest day yet, since the last mini 'heatwave' we had recently... Temp reached 26°C, at 4pm. Had a lovely meal in the garden with friends and family.

    Nice and cool now, and the humidity is low, so no hot, sticky bedroom to go up to shortly!
