Weekend Wandering

Authorblog has set a challenge to answer the following question:

The question is: When did you last complain about the weather?

My answer:

I live in Britain. Complaining about the weather is a compulsory national pastime, enjoyed by all.

I last complained (I'm proud to say) about twenty minutes ago when I opened our front door and was blasted with a wave of heat. Glorious sunshine today and I'm still complaining!!

Bloody weather, it confuses me so much that I forget to complain about it! ;-)))

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog! I feel a bit blue right now, I mean, did the Austrians have to lose that way? They desperately needed a Beckham to kick the ball in the right direction!

Spent many summers in the UK as a sportswriter. One year at Wimbledon I grizzled about the heat. About an hour later, tropical downpour paralysed London.

From that point on, I was banned from discussing the weather!

That's the way to do it! We have also had a fantastic month lately - just 9mm of rain for a month!

But now the clouds are back
The rain will be back
The complaining will be back.

Short & to the point!
Its good to have something to talk about! Everyone can join in about the weather! What would we do without it?

I start complaining when I get up at 5:30 am...I complain when I go out into the gardens at 7 am...I generally bitch till noon then come in take a nap to cool off (it's been over 100 3 days this week) drink lots of iced tea before going back out into the afternoon sun about three...I know, I'm nuts!

Yeah we complain all the time - the answer is always the same "just wait a bit" - interesting piece on trisadeskawhatsit - if we nbelieved everything or waited for the right weather we'd end up doing nowt most of the time - had a nice day in Skipton yesterday despite the cool air and today we've a huge downpour that lasted 15 minutes then went - bound it rain rtomorrrow for the village fete.
cheers and hope your'e feeling a but better noo.
