I do live in the UK so it’s perfectly all right, and in fact almost expected, that my main topic of conversation should sometimes be the weather. Today is the longest day – in Scotland, at this time of year it hardly gets dark at all. Apart from today, when it has been raining torrentially all day, it looks and feels like mid November and I have just had to get up and find an extra fleece because I am freezing.
We switched the heating off weeks ago when there was a brief period of sunshine, so now we’re mostly being stoic and pretending that we’re not shivering in the living room.
Please can I have some summer?
