I should be so lucky

So goodbye to the first heatwave of the year – it was far too hot for me and hello to more bearable weather.  I’m not sure I have moaned about weather forecasters on TV and radio who presume to know whether you will like the weather that is coming over the next 12 hours or so.   It seems not to be as pronounced as it once was but I also balk against anyone telling me what I will or won’t like – sometimes weather forecasters cross that line.

Fix my meals and go away

It is just too hot to do anything other than mess about sketching.
