After two years of grotty grey summers, it's a bit of a shock to have a real summer for once. We have been stifling this week, hot and humid, although a tiny breeze has made it better at night than sometimes, and even Wimbledon has gone ahead without rain interruptions - they should have built that roof before!
So despite planning a barbeque 3 months ago to have with friends, we are not hurriedly making rain delayed plans, but actually going ahead, food bought, puddings prepared and barbeque ready to go.
I don't like the humidity, but I'm definitely not complaining about the summer weather - it's wonderful, and the chance to sit outside, cook outside and eat outside is enough of a novelty to make it even more appealing than usual.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
