Miss Bateman (you're not my old - umm I mean ex - schoolteacher from waybackwhen are you?) I just love that local form of weather forecasting!
We have a saying here as we overlook the Bristol Channel - if you can see Wales it's going to rain, and if you can't see Wales - it's raining. Like all folklore - an element of truth!
It has been hot again here - up to 27 C again, but it's now clouded over a bit. It should be a bit cooler tonight - so should be easier for sleeping.
Btw - remember the icecream maker I said I had bought? Bad move. Very bad move. No-one wants "that shop-bought rubbish" any more - so I've been consigned to icecream maker in chief throughout the hot weather at least. Vanilla (with real pods and seeds) = delicious. Lemon & lime sorbet = soft mix but gorgeous. (Sorry - nothing to do with weather directly. Perhaps we need a "recipe" section to share ideas about using gluts of stuff. Courgette icecream anyone?).
