I've had a comment sent to me asking about the actual weather here as opposed to that reported by the BBC.
Well at best I would say it was iffy. Definitely not warm and sunny as it was at this time last year. When he sun does break through it is very pleasant - shorts and t-shirt stuff but otherwise it is overcast and cold at best.
We do know that it will get better but we don't know when!
Update It just poured down with rain for about twenty minutes. It is very overcast and looks as though it could well rain again soon.
