Mother of God!!!!!
I don’t know what it’s like anywhere else, but it’s bloody hot here in Chard (Somerset). Not that I’m complaining or anything (LOL), but it’s just too damn hot. For those of you not in the South West England, we are currently experiencing a heat wave, which is kind of a rarity these last few years. There’s sun and heat, and not a cloud in the sky!
But I’m not built for heat.
My heritage is cold and dark Scotland, and I’ve always been able to stroll through town just wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and sandals in the dead of winter. When I saw all that snow we had a few years ago (or was it last year?) I bought a deck chair one of those tanning mirrors and parked myself out on the street going, “Man this is amazing weather we’re having.”
For some reason, the locals didn’t take to that, wrapped in their parkas and arctic weather gear. I just winked and said, “Beautiful day isn’t it?” They’d all mutter, shaking their heads and telling their friends to stay away from the half-naked “weirdo”. Sure, I’m the weirdo. So I’d just hum to myself, sunglasses on.
I’m cool like that. Bow ties are cool by the way, or so I’m told.
What do you mean get on with it? How rude…
Anyway, it’s bloody hot here, and thought I’d spread the word. You know, just in case it gets too hot and I melt and can’t write anymore! As I was contemplating writing a blog post this morning, I thought “why not let my followers do the talking?”. So, what do you say? How’s the weather where you are? Anyone melting just as badly as me? Or am I just a big jessie?
