I’m laughing while writing this. Apparently our island was voted the country with the best climate in the world. I am laughing because right now it’s pouring outside! Fine, it’s looked and felt like summer this past week or so but I can’t help thinking of the tourists who come from colder climates in search of days of sunshine and happen to arrive on days like today. It really is not common for us to have bad weather (which in my books is excellent weather) but, here, when it rains it pours.
Anyone who knows me or has been following this blog knows how much I detest summer and the heat. I relish the few months of winter we are given and start dreading the heat come March. And while I love the fact that at home it’s always bright (and by bright I mean ‘wear your sunglasses to breakfast’ bright), even now that we’re in the middle of winter, it can sometimes get too bright. I walked in from work yesterday to this scene:
I think it’s about time we invested in some proper shades or curtains.
