I am exercising my right, as a British person, to talk about the weather.
Here in the UK, we are officially experiencing a heatwave. There does seem to have been an extraordinary amount of sunshine over the last two months, certainly in Manchester.
My garden soil, a usually waterlogged heavy clay, is now dry as a bone, with large cracks appearing on the surface. I haven't seen those for several years. Weeds are unable to cope, which is a pleasant side-effect, and I appear to be in line for a nice crop of tomatoes, which as often as not rot and blight in the damp conditions. The lawn is growing slower than usual, and is getting a bit brown in places. It will recover, I'm sure.
Work is a bit uncomfortable, but I'll take it over grey, muggy conditions any day.
