On the shady side of the street.....

It's rare indeed in the UK that you WANT to walk on the shady side of the street
It's rare indeed in the UK that you AVOID the seats in the sun
It's rare indeed in the UK that you even CONTEMPLATE dipping more than your feet in the sea [unless you're under 10 or a masochist]
So after all that.....you might have concluded that it's been HOT here this week.......moaning about the weather is a national pastime.....so as the temperatures soared into the 30s on the South Coast......we moaned that it was too hot.....just as much as we were moaning it was too cold and wet 2 weeks ago.
But it's the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics today
so hey....it's raining....thank God for that.....everything must be alright in our world after all!!

I know! I complain about the cold in the winter and the heat in the summer. I much prefer spring and fall--unless it's raining and then I can complain about that. Looking forward to the Olympics opening ceremony tonight.

That's made me smile! We didn't get anywhere near the 30s up here, but at least we've avoided the rain! Here's to a happy and exciting and safe Olympics!

Well I don't want the rain back, but I must admit it is a little too hot for my liking!
Loved the opening ceremony tonight.

There's just no pleasing us at all when it comes to the weather!

I'm afraid complaining about the weather is a pastime in many parts of the world. We've had two days of steady showers and are so grateful for the rain!

Lovely photos Jacky. Didn't get hot enough over here to moan about too much heat, still moaning about too much rain:(

I would probably get an Olympic medal for complaining about the weather Jacky that's for sure!!!! Well I bet I will when I have to leave the sun and come to the UK next week! Its topping 45 degrees C at the moment here, which is too hot even for me! Sue x

lol! The sky is actually blue here this morning. I think that might have to count as good weather for today :)
