Flipping weather

It's amazing to think it's almost June. So cold I had to light the woodburner. And as usual Swansea is the windiest place in Britain - 63mph so far and driving rain. Thank God I lopped some branches off my trees last week!!!

Well it hasn't rained for a month here and been flat calm, warm and nearly constantly sunny for nearly all that time, I'm a bit p**d off as I have no boat to take advantage of it but can hardly complain about what the weather has been like.

It's getting a bit silly down here-I ran over a fish on the A27 earlier and swamped a car with the lorrys bow wave.

Only one is a joke.
