Yesterday I wandered around for a short while in the heat! Yes I know this sounds crazy but yesterday was HOT! I passed the Angel Inn and tried to picture the design found under the eaves. The Magpie did what Magpies do and flew off as I stopped. However by the time I got the picture home I notice he, or his mate, was back again. How nice. I am still not sure what the motif is meant to imply, sunshine possibly. The Angel has stood here since the 1600's and I suspect the magpies relatives were found here at that time also, although not on TV aerials.
I took my book to the gardens and attempted to read it but the glare of the light of the page was too bright. Not only but for the first time in years, or if ever, I found the sun too hot, I was indeed burning as I sat there. After thirty or so minutes I headed home already red blotches appearing on my
skinny muscle bound arms. Goodness me, summer is here!
Today when I attempted to heat the water for a bath, it's almost the end of the month, it would not work. I had to take the temperature gauge to the top before the gas would light. At 8 in the morning the room was 70 %, or 20 if you are foreign!
Today however was misty, and rain teemed down this afternoon.
On a serious note I see that Alaska was bathed in sunshine and some were grumbling about the heat. It appears to me this is because that Jet Stream has indeed moved south and gives us rain and cold while high up the warmth appears. The weather experts have met together and said. "We don't know nothing mate!" Personally I would rather the jet stream moved back north and I got global warming, much better than cold.
