Summertime, and the living is easy

I’m writing this just before 7am on a Monday morning towards the end of July.

It has rained most of the night, the skies are overcast and there’s a distinct chill in the air. The weather reader thing says it’s 11 degrees.

British weather never ceases to amaze me. No, really. We’ve had blistering 30 degree days this summer already, and days like yesterday where the best place to be was under a duvet.

Like to keep an eye on the skies near here? Flickr has a user called Birmingham Selly Oak Weather who posts wonderful photos of the skies near Selly Oak every day, and will be doing so for a year.
