Phew! Its been really warm this last week. What’s that I hear you say, warm, in the UK, as in sunny?? Yup!
Damn warm in fact. The newspapers have been running their annual – Ooh, what a scorcher features for the last few days but today looks like it’s going to be the hottest day of the year, perhaps even the hottest day of the century with temperatures topping the 35 degree C mark (Approx 95 Degrees Fahrenheit – Click the thumbnail for today’s UK weather map).
One thing the hot weather really brings home is how brill it is. Yes, its sticky at night but in Australia you can make sure you live somewhere with the correct technology (i.e. Air Conditioning) to help counteract these really hot times.
More importantly, is great to wake up on the morning to have the Sun on your back. Its even better to finish work and know you can pop out in the garden for an hour or two to catch the last of the WARM sunshine whilst enjoying a glass of wine or two or a nice barbeque like we did last night.
In the UK, a hot sunny week gets the press into a frenzy. In Australia it’s a way of life and its this way of life which is one of the big draws for this family.
Still have to sell the damn house (feels like I’ve been saying that for ages now) but we will get there!
