Jul, welcome back to Blighty. I’m sure that you saw absolutely nothing of the UK from the air as you flew in due to the extreme cloud. We have been saving the crappy weather for you for some time now. April was on average 1c warmer than any other April in recorded history and we only 6% of the normal rainfall in the south east (which is suprises me since I’m sure we had none).
Now you’re back though we will be using our quota of grey, damp, miserable crap in one big clump of depression.
Oh, and I am around in the day at the moment for a little while before I start my new job at some time in the next couple of weeks. Mayhaps it shall clear up and dry up suficiently for a crud duel.
