Sat last Friday afternoon in Regent's Park I could not believe the sunshine. It was glorious. I had high hopes for this week (being half-term). Sadly, as is usually the case, the weather took a turn for the worst and we've had rain, grey skies and more rain.
I don't watch the weather bulletins. I wouldn't say they are intentionally mendacious but they're often wildly inaccurate. I rely on looking out the window when I get up (which in itself can be problematical). Wednesday evening, however, I caught a weather person proclaiming blue skies and sunshine for yesterday. Combined with my new car (just five years old) I didn't need any more persuading to head for the coast.
End of October. Aldeburgh beach. Fish and Chips. Sunshine. A sublime moment.
