The Green and Wet Bits of London



My hands, face and neck are burnt.

Tomorrow, I will be unable to walk, and, currently, it hurts to sit down.

Never one for doing things by halves I went for the first bike ride of the year. Cycle path on the A13, the Greenway, the Lee Navigation to Tottenham. By way of Hackney and Walthamstow Marshes.

26 mile round trip.

Superb.

But doing so on your mum's too-small, bone-shaker of a bike is not to be recommended.

Ugh. You managed a sunburn in London??? In April? Poor thing. I have to slather myself in sunscreen year round. I feel a bit of social darwinism tugging at me every summer (can the pasty white girl survive another brutal Texas summer?).

Its not right is it: getting a sunburn in April. Next thing, we'll have the UK winning Eurovision.

Oh so the world HAS gone arse over heels. We've already got figs growing on the Tyne and now one doesn't need to go outside the UK to get suburnt. Pity for zero weather men like yours truly who can't take the heat or the sun and don't really like it much either. Especially when lately I've been feeling like I'm 50 and not being able to go out!
